Blair Waldorf, together with her minions, love to eat their lunch while sitting on the steps of the Met. IMO, it's one of the most memorable GG spots in New York because a lot of high school drama went down here--whether it's between Blair and Serena, or Blair vs. Little Jenny Humphrey!

From: Gossip Girl (Season 1, 2007) Scene: B with her minions lording over the steps of The Met. That’s it. That’s the scene. From: Ocean’s 8 (2018) Scene: Debbie attends Vogue’s Met Gala to steal a verrrry valuable Cartier necklace from a celebrity.

This is an excellent museum for a wet day in Nelson. Good exhibits, well presented and put into context. OK not as good as the Abel Tasman National Park which we would have visited if it had not been raining but fair enough it was not competing!

If you don’t mind climbing a gazillion steps* to reach it, the National Palace Museum puts the National Taiwan Museum to shame with the sheer vastness of its collection, among which are items drawing flocks of tourists every day. But fear not, the premises themselves are huge, and even when visiting on days where the visitor counter reached over 3000, the 25 exhibit rooms did not feel crowded at all. Highlights of the permanent exhibition: 🔸 Meat-shaped stone. Just as the name suggests, this is a banded jasper mineral that enticingly resembles a juicy slab of freshly braised pork belly. The contrast between the hardness of the material and the tenderness and almost gelatinous quality of its appearance will have you questioning your own eyes. 🔸 Jadeite cabbage. This delicately chiselled piece of jade is mind-blowing finery at its fullest, from the crunch of the cabbage leaves to the details of the grasshopper sitting in its middle. ❗️The National Palace Museum has 2 branches, one in Taipei and one in Taibao (Chiayi). Its most famous exhibits regularly rotate between the 2 locations, so do check on their website before visiting, to avoid disappointment! 🎫: 350元 (discounts available, free on selected special dates) 💬: Chinese and English; Free guided tours in Chinese and English; Audio players available for rent at 150元 in 14 languages * jk, the museum is fully wheelchair accessible https://www.npm.gov.tw/en/
