Hi,We''re travelling to Taiwan (family of four + toddler) for 10 days and would like to know how much spending money to bring along, assuming we''ll eat at inexpensive venues and expect little shopping. Hotels and most transportation have been pre-paid, except for taxis.In Taiwan New Dollar please.RegardsDanSingapore
Don’t take too much cash with you. Around 10,000 Taiwan New Dollar is enough, as there are banks in major towns around Taiwan. Remember to bring bank cards with you.
