I was in Taiwan, Taipei on a 4 days business trip and extended one day to walk on my own. It is wonderful to be back in Taiwan after 6 years. I had visited Taiwan 3 times previously with the army and once on my own.
This time back, I found that nothing much has changed. Everything is what I remembered it to be. The night markets, the shopping centres and the food. To be honest, as it was a business trip, I did not really get a lot of personal time to walk around.
To a certain extent, I felt bored…. Anyway, here are some of the more interesting sights I took of Taipei.
Day 1 of exploring around my hotel and saw this shopping centre along Nanjing East road and found
Yes, I walked around to check if it is any different from Singapore. The only interesting thing I saw was
Walking out of Ikea, saw this across the street
It is apparently a popular place to hold concert in Taipei.
Day 2. Pretty late when we went back to the hotel, I only have time to walk around the hotel and took this shot.
Day 3. Took some photos while on site vist to Xinyi and Neihu
Day 4. Finally some time on my own to visit Xi Men Ting and found the food I was looking for
Smelllllly Beancurd! Yum!
Day 5: A Singapore friend who was based in Taiwan brought me to somewhere less touristy
It is call Maokong, a extremely long cable car ride the traverse the hilly region of Taipei. It was a wonderful experience and at the end of the ride, there are a number of tea houses for you to just drink tea and appreciate the scenery.
This final photo marks the end of my trip and finally explain the reason why Taiwanese are so orderly when it comes to taking escalator.
