Forum rules
When posting, especially when starting a new thread, please use a title that explains your post or thread, e.g. don't put "Help please!" when you could put "Where can I find a camp site near Kending?"

Please check your spelling, because someone may do a text search for your information, e.g. if someone searches for information on Xizhi and you have spelled it She Jher, they won't find it. Someone spelled camping as "campin" without a g at the end - again, it can't be found by a text search. For place names in Taiwan, please try to use Hanyu Pinyin as default, as that is the spelling most people know.

Please place links in your posts to sources of information. If you don't know how to hotlink text, click on the BBCode tips link in my signature to find out.

If you find a thread that is so hopelessly out of date that it couldn't be of use to anyone, please send the moderator a private message (with the URL of the thread)

If you spot two or more threads that you think could be merged, again, alert the moderator

Has anyone taken the boat from Keelung (Jilong) to Matzu? If so, when does it leave and how long does it take?

My colleague says around 9pm but you have to be there at 8pm to check-in. Note that the ferry goes Keelung (Jilong) - Dongyin - Nangan - Keelung (Jilong) or Keelung (Jilong) - Nangan - Dongyin - Keelung (Jilong) on alternating days.

I did the opposite direction sometime last year, took around 2 hours from Nangan to Dongyin, short stop of around 30 minutes and another 6 hours or so to Keelung (Jilong). My colleague and me rented a business class cabin (4 beds), first class is also available (2 beds) - or economy (dormitory style) if you are on a budget. I think the business class was only NTD400 more on top of the 800 for economy.
They also have a coffee shop that sells snacks and drinks (I recommend the cappuccino) and there is an area to sit / eat. Or go up on the roof and enjoy the view, if weather permits. During my trip we had heavy fog but the sea was calm at least (kind of spooky actually).

Here is the link to the company that runs the service, supposingly you can get prices there and also make a booking (can't see it, it's all garbled in my browser): http://www.shinhwa.com.tw/

Thanks, Rascal. Are there ATMs and/or convenience stores there or should I just bring wads o' cash?

(edit: moderators, feel free to move this to the real Matzu thread.)

They got ATMs and just recently 2 shiny new 7-11s on Nangan island. Otherwise there are some local stores spread around, though they don't open 24 hours (AFAIK). Don't expect the same on Xijue island though. ;)

Hey,

I know that thread is pretty old but so is uniair.com.tw! It says I can only browse the website with IE 5.5... it's impossible to select anything as the scripts are not supported in any other browser. How can I book tickets on that website? I tried to book via expedia but of course all flights are always fully booked...any ideas?
