    hoho... heard all of u sharing their Taiwan experience!!! Me too, very excited. I had been to Taiwan for school summar exchange for 2mths in 2007 and 2 more for holidays. I travelled most of the Taiwan visitor areas but most of the time in Kaohsiung since my exchange school was there. I enjoyed illegal scootering there (opps), having 小吃 at those night market... I really miss it.

    I think 18-105 & 35 will be good enough cuz u r suppose to enjoy your trip wif light backpack since u r going wif tour? Although catching moments r impt, sometime we might be busying snapping pictures and neglect the scenery enjoyment.

    I suppose u going in a group? As wat others say, bring tripod for group shots and night sceneries. I guess u wun wan to set up tripod in the middle of the nite market, so much ppl there... hahaha. My suggestion is, maybe juz bring 1 & share among your grp cuz tripod aren't light unless u got a super expensive carbon legs.

    If u r going on the free & easy...
    Places of visit at Kaohsiung(KS) is

    - Stay at 'Moon Lake Hotel, Kaohsiung' for CHEAP and VERY GOOD accomodation.

    - Old British Embassy beside my exchange sch (National Sun Yat-Sen University) but u nid to climb lotsa stairs... hee,

    - u can go in to explore the sch too to explore how TW sch r like

    the entrance of the sch,

    - 1 of them mentioned abt Chijin(旗津), is actually 1 river width away frm the sch. Is a nice place to see sunset... I love it. And take notice of the beach sand... is BLACK color


    - Ard the area where the jetty to Chijin is, there's a place tat sell 'zua bing' (ice), the shop name is called 福泉

    This pic is for illustration and not taken at 福泉 (福泉 fruit r fresher and nicer).

    - I dunno y most tourist tour will bring tourists to 六和夜市。。。 but most Taiwanese (or rather those who visit or stay at KS) like to visit 瑞峰夜市. Is larger, sell clothings, hv street games & a lot of nice food. I personally also prefer here.

    - Love river? haa... 1st timer can try here but is juz like another SG river. I doubt 2nd timer will go there again?

    - for food... I recommend a bbq restaurant 逐鹿'. Is definitely a lot btr than Seoul garden or the past marina bbq-steamboat kind. Abt NT$550 each. Go search online if u wan but always FULL at peak hr.

    - Further away frm KS town area, u can visit 美濃 (experience Hakka culture) and 佛光山 (see very huge Buddha statue)

    - Not to forget the 臭豆腐, my all time favorite
    .

    I guess i have shared enuf for KS le... for Taipei and others i think is more common and easily found. Thanks for viewing
    Every photos has a memory...

    yo Ringwraiths, er i dun understand what is "some many memory card"...

    but then again, i think on D90, high resolution, 8 + 4 + 4 may only contain like 2k pictures, so if divide by 8 days, each day can only tkae like 230?

    Bro

    Think bring a lappy along will do la cos if you bring the 500GB HDD you still need the Lappy right?? Unless its the direct transfer file type without lappy then its okie. Get extra 2 X 8GB card maybe a good idea as if you get the 16GB (touch wood ar if the card die at the moment haha then u really going to die ler)

    Its a holiday trip dun bring so many things to burden yourself down. Dun forget maybe u still need to buy things back from Taiwan haha.

    ah yes, haha

    hmm... actually i was considering abt the cost, anotehr 2*8gb is like 60+ for sandisk ultra II, hmm... for abt 120, i can get 500gb hdd, and as i seldom go on trip, the 2*8GB would be like sit there in the cupboard whereas a 500gb, i can use it anytime... maybe i consider too much, haha

    My 1st trip I brought my S5Pro with 4 lenses and tripod...damn heavy...I brought along a photobank HDD so i jus dump my pictures in there first...

    My 2nd trip I decided to bring along my Panasonic LX3...with a small netbook...and a gorilla pod...much lighter...

    I was backpacking...and at the end of the trip...with the goodies that I bought...really heavy...have to consider...

    If go Taipei can visit the Kaifeng St aka Camera St...there are many many shops selling camera and video stuff...there is a shop I personally must visit when I go back Taiwan...
