Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

Call them. Ask for Ben or Jonathan. Both speak English.

In case you can't follow the Chinese, Ovechkin, the basics are:

Open from 12:30 to 21:00.
Everyone off the rink for re-icing (or whatever you call that) from 15:00~15:30 and 18:00~18:30.
Student ticket: NT$140 weekdays and NT$200 weekends and holidays, gets you 4 hours skating + free borrowing of skates.
Adult ticket: NT$170 and NT$220 weekends and holidays.
3-month pass: NT$2,500 (unlimited use during certain times)

The address is 8th Floor, No. 13, Chengdu Road, Wanhua District, Taipei.

Happy skating!
If I prioritized the acquisition of wealth above other purposes in life, I might still have come to Taiwan to study Chinese, but I doubt I would have remained here.

Hi! Does anyone know if the pricing has changed since last year? If I go at, say, 14:00 and skate till the ice cleaning thing, can I continue skating after that to fill up my 4 hours?

Edit: Also, are there any places that sell laces for my skates?

You can get everything you'd want here:

Monoclub, info at http://www.monoclub.com.tw
CKS Memorial Hall MRT exit 5
Auiguo East Rd, 20-1, 1F, Taipei, Taiwan Tel: 2321 2065

There's a smaller skate shop in the Egg (Nanjing & Dunhua) that should have laces as well.
