At a Glance: Taipei, Taiwan

I now officially close my Taipei series. I can't believe it has been a month since we got back and still the memories of the delicious things that we had during our short 3 day visit still remains fresh in my mind.

To guide you all, here's a summary of what you should do and must try when in Taipei:

1) Get Tourist-y!

Book a hotel and make sure to get a good one: I highly recommend Ceasar Park Hotel

Visit the Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall and learn a thing or two about Taiwan's colorful history.

Climb up the Taipei 101
to win bragging rights that you've been to the 2nd tallest tower in the WORLD!

2) EAT your hearts out!!

Visit these food markets:

Danshui Food Street and the beautiful Fisherman's Wharf

XiMenDing Night Market and the Red House


Shilin Night Market

These are some great food finds in Taipei:

Mala HotPot
(and make sure to indulge in their eat-all-you-can Haagen Dazs and Movenpick ice cream!!)

Agnes B. Cafe

Din Tai Fung
-- the original Xiao Long Bao go-to place

Try some of the Street Foods...

...and take a piece of Taipei back home with you with a box of Chia Te Pineapple Cake.

See you again soon Taipei! ♥
