Our room had no windows and was probably a partition from a suite. The wall between us and the next room was very thin. Interesting conversations came through that wall.
The Signal Compound was very close and a short taxi ride would take you to it. From there, the bus would take us up and down from the work site.
We stayed there for about 4 days until housing gave the thumbs up for renting.
Everyone seemingly has a picture of the King's on their Taiwan blog or website. Here's mine.
You can almost see the stoplight which was the only one around. On the morning after my wife arrived, a taxi picked me up and proceeded east on Min Chuan Road.
The only problem was that we had the red light and the driver ignored it. The car was smashed in the middle of the intersection by oncoming traffic.
No injuries were incurred, so I hopped into another cab which proceeded east to LinSen North Road where the Signal Compound and the bus awaited.
Here's the King's Hotel as it looked in 2006. It was refurbished and converted into the BEST one-stop-shop for all of a bride's needs.
This is the punch list for repairs to our apartment. It was thorough, but several items were not caught.
A few electrical outlets were dead. There were no fuses or circuit breakers in the electrical panel. So, off came the plate covering the outlet.
From the King's to LinSen North Road was a distance of about .2 miles or 350 yards.
Turning left (north) onto LinSen North Road, the Signal Compound was about .4 miles straight ahead.
