Taipei City itself is not that big, but its comprehensive!
As it was the last moment to see Taipei 101 before it turns to world’s second tallest, after Dubai. Alex and I are just in time to catch it.
- Taipei City Hall
We took MRT to Taipei City Hall. In fact, there were free shuttle bus that could bring us to the tower. But the sign was not obvious and it was dark, so we just walk all the way heading to the tower.
- Taipei 101
Taiwan Up 2010 was this new year’s theme.
- 新光三越 Singkong Mitsukoshi
You won’t feel the distance, along the way, you walk across the parks, building and shopping malls. Pass along the popular streets and malls, 新光三越 Singkong Mitsukoshi.
- Taipei 101
Taipei 101 getting nearer, and we took this chance to shoot more photos.
- Views from Taipei 101
Finally we reached Taipei 101. 台北101
As I said, it was the tallest by the moment I reached there. But just a few minutes later it was taken over by Burj Khalifa in Dubai on 4th Jan 2010.
- Taipei 101 entrance
This is the entrance to the mall. The shopping heaven where you will be showered with lots of branded goodies.
- City cafe
Although this is a shopping heaven, but for us, is just for Window Shopping. Can see cannot buy. But at least I know their 7-11 (convenient store) is much more high class than the other places. We grab a cup of coffee from the City Cafe. Just nice, comparable to Starbucks.
- Ximending Cinema
We went back to Ximending as our Final stop. Alex and I would plan to settle our dinner here, and a movie after that.
- Korean Food
We went hunting for food, too much choices but we ended up choosing Alex’s favourite Korean Food. Very nice!
- 3d Cinema
We watched AVATAR 3D version. Ticket consider expensive but inclusive of Popcorn and drinks for TWD330. The cinema experience was great, sound system are good, chairs are comfortable, aircond not too cold and most important thing, there’s no one ringing their mobile phones in the cinema!
It was really an enjoyment to hangout with my dear exploring around the City of Taipei. But its time to say Goodbye again.
5th Jan 2010. Departing from Tao Yuan International Airport to LCCT.
- Taipei Bus Station
This is really the thing that I hate most, BIG LUGGAGE. We’ve tried the best to cut down the luggage size, but due to unpredictable weather, we brings lots of thick jacket. But since there’s only 2 of us, we choose to transit to Airport via Bus. It’s a long walk path from Taipei Station to the bus terminal. But its definitely cheaper compare to Taxi fares.
- Tao yuan airport
We had our lunch at the airport, shopping and getting on board. If compare this airport to KLIA, I would they actually looks more comfortable to me. At least there’s a lot of things to see, eat, and buy. Most important thing, the price are reasonable!
- Good bye Taiwan
Good bye Taiwan, we will be back again, for sure!!
We love Taiwan!!
