Taipei 101 Observatory

台北101觀景台

Taipei, China, Republic • Recommendation • 

Nothing like a sky-high building and its view to make you contemplate your insignificant existence. It’s definitely tourist-y, but a must-see on your first visit to Taipei!

Taipei, China, Republic • Memory • 

Start your Taipei street food adventure here. Hot Star Chicken Cutlet. Torched Beef Cubes with Rose Rock Salt. Prince Cheese Potatoes’ Corn & Cheese. Taiwan Bubble Milk Tea. More. Yum! I also watched Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1 with my friends in a cinema here.

So chill. This food market was also a good place to relax or pre-game before hitting up the clubs in the Xinyi District. It’s so sad they’ve closed it down!

Jiufen Old Street

Keelung, China, Republic • Recommendation • 

Take in a different side of Taiwan while walking through Jiufen’s old streets. Stretch your legs, but get your tummy ready, too! There’s a lot of food you can try and taste for free before buying them for pasalubong!
