The Dorm:
TIHTC will provide transportation to and from the airport
Located inside the hospital complex
About 2 bus stations (Blue18, 99…) to the nearest MRT (Taipei Subway) station
About 30 min to Downtown Taipei
Supermarkets, restaurants, and some 24 hour convenient stores within 15 min walking distance
Rough estimate of expenses:
Flight ticket: $1350 ~ $1500
Food, local transportation, and recreational: ~ $600
Exchange rate about $NT28/1USD

TIPS
Get a EasyCard if you plan on going to places (electronic cash card for transportation fare and some convenient stores, gives you discounted rate on fare)
The cards are sold in any MRT station, you can either get it from the machine ($NT500 minimum) or from the booth where there’s no minimum requirement
The card itself has a $NT100 refundable deposit
There may be a new MRT station opening up nearer to the Hospital next year
There is a convenient store in the hospital lobby and a cafeteria open at lunch time ($NT50/lunch box:1 meat dish, 3 vegetable dishes, rice, and soup)
A typical meal usually cost a little less than NT$100
Don’t forget to get your immunization up to date before your trip
