Hi, My name is Paul Carr. I’m a newbie in Taipei and Taiwan. I arrived in Taiwan on the 23rd of March 2009. Yesterday, I checked out the Jhong Jheng (Zhongzheng) Sports Center near Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall. It was already mentioned on this forumosa thread from 3 years ago here.
The website of this sports center is http://www.jjsports.com.tw/
I went there yesterday and I was told that they charge something like 1500 Taiwan dollars for a month’s membership. I think that’s a very good price.
For the first two weeks in Taipei, I was living very near this gym. But, today, I had to move to a new hostel near Ximen subway station. They were booked out for tonight in the hostel I was staying in. I understand that Taipei has 12 districts and each district has a sports center like Jhong Jheng sports center for Jhong Jheng district of Taipei. I think my new hostel near Ximen subway station is located in Wanhua district so I was wondering if anyone knows where the Wanhua Sports Center is located as it is likely to be nearer to where I am now. I was trying to find its address on google but can’t find it. Any help, appreciated.
