I have a 5hrs 40mins connection in Taipei coming up in a couple of weeks when I travel from LHR to SYD with China Airlines. I've been told it's a pretty dull airport, but what is there to do exactly. Also how is it in terms of ease of connection. I understand that the LHR flight will arrive into T1 but the SYD flight will depart from T2. Finally, and this may be a silly question, will I need to purchase some Taiwanese currency for the shops and cafes/restaurants, or will they accept another form of currency?
Many thanks in advance
