Travels 2010: Taiwan Pt. 2

I promise this will be the last of the travel photos. I decided that this blog can also serve as my photo travelogue to click back to when I get nostalgic. Really a great way for me to display the "Best Of" highlighting my most memorable moments on the trip. I hope you all enjoyed a change of pace from the usual fashion-related posts. Without further ado, I present these last pictures which paint a more scenic and historical portrait of Taiwan.

What can I say about the night markets, except that you have to go to at least one when you're in Taiwan. The biggest one is in Shi-lin, but I think the coolest one is in Shida, which is close to a college.

Find cheap and trendy clothing all along the streets. I saw many YesStyle items but for even cheaper.

You can get practically anything cooked on a skewer.

The entrance of Chiang Kai Shek's residence.

Mengjia Longshan Temple in Taipei

We even caught a show at Roxy Roots.

I suggest dim sum lovers to stop by the beautiful Grand Hotel Taipei on the weekend. Be forewarned that they don't use the typical cart system. You simply order off the menu.

The view out the window in the dining area is absolutely breathtaking!

The Jade Market is the place to go if you need to bring home some goodies for friends and family. However, the market is only opened on the weekends.

The entire week we were in Taiwan, it pretty much rained non-stop, except on our last day where the sunset really made my day.

And we even caught a rainbow.

View from the top of the mountains going up to the little mining town of Jiufen.

Finally, I ended my travels by accidentally stumbling upon a traditional puppet show which was a bit creepy and psychedelic at the same time.

Here is my top 5 list for Taiwan:
1) There is 7Eleven on every corner.
2) You get tissue boxes or a bottled water for getting a gas fill-up.
3) If you see Best Roti Coffee bread, get it! You can smell it a mile away! (found a recipe for those with patience to make it)
4) We hear the love motels are pretty cool with different themed rooms to choose from. We're definitely going to check one out next time. In the Batman-themed room, you get to sleep in the Batmobile.
5) Watch out for the scooters!!
