Finally after making a journey around Taiwan island, we returned back to Taipei again, our starting point. Taipei is definitely my most favourite place in Taiwan. There are many places to go here, as well as more places to shop! And it doesn't hurt that their MRT is so convenient.
Day 5 was the last day our tour guide was going to be showing us around in Taipei, bringing us to famous attractions in Taipei. The first place we went to was #Yehliu Geopark, which contains various unique rock formations overlooking the sea. However, unfortunately, that day it was raining heavily and added to that, a very windy day. The weather was so bad, we were forced to buy raincoats as umbrellas were insufficient to protect us.
For lunch, we had it in #Jiufen. This place is a must-go in Taipei. It reminded me of those small narrow streets in China. There were many shops and restaurants here, mainly having Taiwan traditional and famous delicacies. Stinky tofu was my favourite =) Some were really weird, like snails.
After lunch, we went to #Taipei 101, which is the tallest building in Taiwan. This place is kinda like KLCC as it also has a small shopping mall housing some really famous designer brands that I can never afford :(
Although we went to another night market, #Shihlin Night Market, we did not have dinner there. Instead, we did some really good shopping! It was here I found my favourite boutique that had so many lovely clothes. However, due to tight budget, I could only buy this cute pastel pink blazer =)
Dinner was at #Ximending, which was also the place where we stayed at. The shopping here is not as good as Shihlin but apparently it is the most trendiest hang-out place for youngsters. The place is totally flooded with people and very stylish youngsters as well. Really, the Taiwanese dress to the nines. Kpop culture is huge here too as you can hear Kpop songs frequently in Taipei. I also spotted an amazing artist who painted using just spray graffiti paint. Awesome~!
