Everyone had a nice sleep after a tiring day yesterday. Now we’re all ready and excited to shop, I mean to explore hehe. Wearing our comfortable shoes for another long walk, and a must have umbrella and fans as this weather is scorching hot.
We skip our free breakfast and went straight to Modern Toilet to have our brunch. A few streets away from our hotel but they are still closed when we get there. We check the stores nearby while waiting for about 30mins. to open. They were excited but I’m not sure if they look happy with what they about to see and experience. Separate blog here.
I’m confused hehe, this looks really cute but who are you really? You're not kitty nor Ronald Mc Donald right hehe.
Then the rain starts to pour so we decided to stay indoors, weird weather. I brought them to Taipei Main Station underground shops; because this is where I usually buy shoes, clothes, souvenirs and other stuffs.
When in Taiwan, I don’t miss this Mister Donut Pon De Ring. They tried it and they love it.
Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall
MRT – Chang Kai-shek Memorial Station (Line 2), Exit 5
One of the famous attractions here in Taipei is the Chang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall. I always brought first timers here and I already knew my role, I just ask them where to stand and give their best shot.
National Concert Hall
CKS Memorial Hall
It’s been my nth time here but this is the first time will witness this ceremony.
This is the new extended (RED) line of Tamsui - Xinyi line 2 from CKS Memorial Hall Station to Xiangshan Station. The construction was completed last quarter of 2013, and Taipei 101 has now had its own station. I can see a lot of changes and developments every time I go to Taiwan, good job!
MRT – Taipei 101/World Trade Centre Station (Line 2), Exit 4
The basement of Taipei 101 is very crowded when you exit from the station. There are a lot of tour groups when we arrived; I just found out that there’s a separate elevator for them and for walk-ins which is located at the 5F going to the observatory. The food court is also located at the basement, and if you see a long queue it’s because of this very famous Din Tai Fung.
It’s not advisable to go to the observatory when the sky is not clear, it’s just a waste of money. We just stroll around and then eat at the food court after. The queue at DTF is still long, dang.
My Japanese meal for NTD160.
Most of the shops in Ximending closes at 10pm, so we went back early. Alam na this!
Mango and Strawberry shaved ice.
And to cap the night off, I treat them with my fave dessert in Taipei. This is near Watson’s (Rainbow Hotel).
