    I will be going to Taiwan in June. I will start in Taipei and I am planning on going to the South of the island. Any recommendations? Any place where I can rent a scooter for a day or 2?

    if you're renting in taipei, lots of options, but check out bikefarm.net english(?) guy operated - i.e. good english, make your life easy. :D

    outside taipei, i have no experience, but understand that there are often rental outfits right near the train stations.

    Rented a scooter here near Hualien

    No. 87, Xinxing 1st Road, Xincheng Township, Hualien County, Taiwan 971

    I think it was about US$20 for 24 hours. Only 100cc Honda. Which was fine to go up to the national park on and down the coast. Be sensible.

    They kind of spoke English. Although my friend was listening in and was laughing at us because apparently we were having two conversations.

    I would use them again. You should know a little mandarin before going to Taiwan anyway

    I didn't try to get one in Taipei. I loved seeing all the scooters it was awesome when there is like 20-50 at each corner.

    Be aware it rains a lot in Taiwan.
