So I’ve been in Kaohsiung for around 3 weeks now, and I’m thinking about travelling to Taipei for a weekend with my friend to check out the city and to vote in the Australian federal election. Yes, I know I can just not vote, but it’s a good enough excuse for me to go to Taipei.
Problem is neither of us have passports at the moment while we get our Resident Visas (which we had to paid 3000NT for, when they could’ve just given us the Resident Visa in Australia… ). Does anyone know of anywhere (hostel, hotel, motel or whatever) where you don’t need a passport to stay? Not sure how it works here, but in most other countries I’ve been to I’ve always needed my passport to stay overnight.
Failing that, does anyone know of any soft grass or nice bus stations around Taipei?
