Chris: aren't you supposed to be in The Magic Kimdom?

Cardinal rule: Do any currency exchanges from or into NT$ while still in Taiwan. Changing NT$ outside of Taiwan is sometimes impossible, but when possible, you will likely be hit with hefty fees.

That seems to be a good compromise. As for special entertainment, well I'm going with my girlfriend so not gonna happen and I'm not into that kind of stuff ^^ unless you guys know something for couples .
By the way, my girlfriend is taiwanese so she will probably need a visa to get there, is it difficult to do for her ? (I think as an EU citizen, I don't need for tourism purpose actually).
