What do you mean by "ke yun" buses? How are they identified in English? Or maybe I should ask "How can you tell, it is a ke yun bus? Our cruise will dock in Keelung for a day and we were going to do Taipei on our own. Is this advisable? Any suggestions? Thank you. B. Rabbito,Canada

"Ke yun" are long distance buses analogous to Greyhound buses in the U.S. Since you'll be docking at the passenger terminal, it would probably be a better idea to go to Taipei by train, as the Keelung train station is right in the area. Another plus is that the train will take you to the center of Taipei, and leaves less room for error. -Loren 21:18, 12 Nov 2005 (EST)

Pow pow ice[edit]

An anonymous contributors added "pow pow ice" as a local speciality, but as this finds precisely zero Google hits, I call shenanigans. Jpatokal 04:56, 27 March 2008 (EDT)

I think the contributor might mean 'bau (bau) bing' or 'bau (bau) ice' - It is a kind of shaved iced covered with fruit flavored syrup... I remember it used to be popular in Taiwan some years ago... Anyway, this is just a guess, I'm not really sure... WindHorse 07:17, 27 March 2008 (EDT)
Yeah, they've got that stuff all over South-East Asia as well, but I've never seen egg involved like the poster claimed -- even in Taiwan. Jpatokal 12:20, 27 March 2008 (EDT)
