Ni hao! Here’s a summary video of my 4-day stay in Taiwan. 🙂
This trip was extra special to me from my previous out of the country trips because this was my first ever solo travel outside the Philippines. Haha!
It was so much fun and liberating! Well, I really like to travel alone so I already expected that I would enjoy this trip. Haha! But what I was super excited about before going to Taipei were the food I’m going to nibble on, the places I am going to visit, and the amazing weather! It’s the last week of February so it’s still chilly but not so much and it was perfect.
Below are some of the photos I took from the places I went to and a few of the food I tried while I’m there.
Lungshan Temple of Manka
A typical street in Wanhua District, Taipei, Taiwan.
Huaxi Street Tourist Night Market
Squirrels and the lovely view in 228 Peace Park
I was also lucky to see Sakura trees started blooming! So if you want to witness sakura blossoms in Taipei, it is perfect to visit sometime between last week of February and first week of March. 🙂
Raohe Street Night Market
Subway to Taipei Main Station
The most famous skyscraper in Taiwan, the Taipei 101. I took this from the peak of the Elephant Mountain. It’s a steep hike but the view from up there is worth the sweat! Also, a few minutes of trek won’t hurt so much.
That’s me and Taipei 101. See how wet my shirt is? Haha! For a very unprepared and unfit person like me, it was a challenge. But it didn’t kill me so, I would still recommend to do this. You can relax on the top after, it was amazing.
Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall
The vastness of Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall is amazing! It’s also a great place to relax, take photographs, picnic, and whatever decent. Haha! There are sakura trees around, too. 😉
That’s me again, with the Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall. Hehe
I also tried the famous Modern Toilet Restaurant in Ximending on my last day. The food is served in a bowl that looks like toilet. It’s cute, and very instragrammable. The price of the meals are a bit high from the usual prices of food in Taipei but it’s okay. Taste is OK too. I only had chicken curry, and I love chicken and curry so my comment about it is kind of bias… and yes, I loved it. The complimentary poop-shaped chocolate ice cream is so-so though. I would still recommend it for first time visitors for experience. The place is cozy, and homy so you will absolutely like it. 😉
Modern Toilet Restaurant
There are places I wasn’t able to go to because of oversleeping. Haha! Like Yehliu Geopark up north, the Sanxia District, Jiufen Old Street, and a lot more. I think it’s okay, then I have a reason to go back.
Taiwan, I’ll see you again! ❤
