現在來灣區出差或外派的人真是稀鬆平常, 但如果你是第一次到這兒, 也許以下的資訊可以給你一些幫助, 原本是想寫給來我們公司出差的員工, 不過想想也許有些人也會有興趣知道, 於是就 po 在這兒了!

主要可能出沒城市如下:


這裡大家常用 www.yelp.com 來看評價, 價位等資訊, 如果有一群人, 也可以考慮買 www.restaurant.com 的折價卷, 但是是要用買的, 比如説用$20 買$40 的折價卷, 但只適用於該餐廳...

以下都是簡易英文, 大致分為平常工作日午餐, 晚餐, 哪兒買東西等...
小人我就不翻譯了...

nice!

好乖的夜生活喔 是說 矽谷還真的沒什麼夜生活 (加班不算)

怎麼沒台灣來的常常會要求看的鋼管舞?? :P
或是台灣年輕人喜愛的卡拉 OK
MV 這也是有幾家夜店, 但不算好玩

另外宵夜也常是台灣出差訪客會問的
cupertino 那有ㄧ兩家吧, 我通常帶訪客去 MV 那家香港餐廳吃廣東粥配上飲茶當消夜
