w domestic or cosmopolitan (the second usually in larger city hotels) specialties: domestic (e.g., sea
food) or foreign (e.g., Italian)
w special diet (e.g., vegetarian)

Note that in many venues a knife and fork may not often be available, so either carry your
own or learn to use chopsticks!

Hsinchu's most famous landmarks. The compound for many street vendors selling well-known

w There are many eateries opposite National Tsing-Hwa University on Chieng-Kung Road, serving

4.Transportation
Hsinchu is easily reached via public transportation. The city is a major stop on the main north
south rail line from Taipei to Kaohsiung. It is convenient from both the Chung-San Freeway
and the Second Northern Freeway. In addition, frequent and comfortable long distance
coaches leave from near the train station (Hsinchu Bus Company, Taiwan Motor Transport
Company, Fe Go Express) and serve a wide network of routes.
w Taiwan Railway Administration http://www.railway.gov.tw/taiwan/indexe.html (for train schedule
information)

11
Always remember to hold onto any travel tickets, whether local or long-distance, as they
must usually be surrendered on arrival at your destination. In cities, taxis are cheap, and the
easiest way to get around. It will save a lot of hassle to have the Chinese name of your
destination written down, or marked clearly on a map.

5.Money matters
In Taiwan, payments for goods or services are more than likely made in cash only. The use of
checks is comparatively rare, and credit cards are gaining acceptance.

6.Visas
Visa information on the Web may be had at http://www.boca.gov.tw/english/index.htm

7.Weather and Clothing


The hot and often humid summer season lasts from April to October, with temperatures of
27°C-35°C. Wear light, airy clothing. The rainy season - often with heavy, prolonged
downpours - is from March to May. July and August are months when typhoons are most
likely. Temperatures in winter - November to March - can reach lows of 10°C, although days
when the weather is quite warm can suddenly intervene.
