    A couple comments:

    1. The Crown Prince’s Guesthouse is now open to the public. IIRC, the rules are:
    no food or drink,
    you may take photos, but not video or flash
    the amount of guests allowed at any one time is limited, so you may have to wait in line to get a badge
    to get a badge, you have to write down your name

    2. I visited the source of the Keelung river, which was more satisfying than I expected. You didn’t make it clear in the book that there is a trail to the actual source of the river up in the jungle. Some parts are indistinct, so anybody taking the trail needs to keep an eye out for the ribbons.
