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! ♥
