I live about one hour from Taipei so I don't go there often, but if anyone planning coming and needs info about transportation or lodging, I can try to help out, just pm me.
As I've posted elsewhere, I would like to see as many different US skaters as possible compete at Four Continents (Feb. 15-20), Junior Worlds (Feb. 28-March 6 in Korea) and Worlds (March 21-27 in Japan) so as to spread around the opportunities for gaining ISU World Standings ranking points.

The top U.S. pair and dance teams often elected to compete at Four Continents for the prize money/ranking points/extra comp. before Worlds. The decision is usually left up to the skaters and their coaches.
Aside from Johnny Weir, the top ladies and men have competed at 4CC as well. There is enough time (about a month) in between 4CC and Worlds that it shouldn't be much of an issue to compete at both, I wouldn't think, even if both competitions are in Asia.
I am bummed at not being able to attend this event. I have been to Taipei before and I just loved it! I am still scratching my head though as to why Grand Prix Final, 4CC and Worlds are all in Asia this season.

About practice, was told it is not open.
About picking up tickets, detail info will be post on the offical website, please keep checking. Tickets are free, Taipei is a lot cheaper than Tokyo and food are delicious. Wishing more fans from abroad will consider coming, 4CC is during Chinese New Year time, so there will also be lots activities, and the city will be like christmas time with lots of decorations, it is really beautiful.
The 2010 Taipei International Flora Expo is also open and is quiet nice. Worth coming a few days early to visit.
Thanks for the above link to the Flora Expo newfsfan. Hadn't realized that it will be open thru April--I surely plan to see it when I'm in Taipei for 4CC.
