    this time of the year is quite cooling...I was there couple of years ago...play till shiok...got a small food stall outside the camp...food overall say 6.5/10...but its better then nothing...

    I got my own bunk so sleeping there is no problem...

    As for the R&R...that one the most shiok liaoz...pray your tour guide is a chio bu...but mostly is can make it one...you will travel from your camp to somewhere nearby to see the aquirmum...then lunch at somewhere near camp...food are already prepared before hand and you will start eating once your CO say ok...everything you do is also very quick one...visit to kaohsiung and check into a hotel for an overnight stay...then nights out and training troops must book in by dunno what time...we support staff they dun care so we stay out longer...remember to take the hotel name card for cab home...

    The rest is just travel to diff places to see see....over night stay in taipei is the best...go out to the night market...wah...so many things and XMM...but this time of the year the weather is cold and they wear a lot...

    The last day is the best already...free and easy...go to there version of orchard road...wah...

    anything ask the tour guide...and try to speak chinese there...the moment u speak english...they know you are not local...prices goes up...just like our SLS...

    Many many years ago I was in Heng Chun Camp 1 for ATEC 2, infantry.

    Taichung -> Kaohsiong -> Taipei for flight home using China Airlines.

    R&R same.

    day 1 - Taichung
    day 2 - Kaohsiong
    day 3 - Taipei

    Anway for KaoSiung

    I was there for an ex abt 2 years ago.... the places i remember are..
    Jian Guo Rd (Like sim lim but it's a whole strecth of rd rather than a building)
    Xing Jue Jiang (A shopping place with many road side stalls by the side)
    Liu He Ye Shi ( Something like Shiling in Taipei i believe, lots of street side stalls selling food)

    Must try the Steak and Chicken chop there (Wo Jia Niu Pa) cheap and nice.
