Asia Trip Day 11 - Taipei (November 2015)

Wednesday 11/4

First morning in Taipei. I found a Chinese breakfast place on the way to our first destination. Eating... this is the main reason to visit Taiwan.

First stop was a tour of the Presidential Palace. I registered online and we got a private tour in English. Our tour guide looked an office worker. He went to the same military college as my dad.

Shin Kong Life Tower, the 2nd tallest building in Taiwan after Taipei 101. Our Airbnb is next door to the building.

I researched a lot of beef noodle places in Taipei before the trip. My dad suggested we come to this place for lunch.

Yongkang Beef Noodle: the building is kind of ghetto but the food was good.

After lunch, we got some shaved ice at Smoothie House down the street

Nest stop, Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall

The man himself

National Theater and Concert Hall

National Palace Museum. We had to meet my aunt for dinner so we were kind of rushed. We saw a few exhibits but didn't see the famous jade cabbage.

After dinner, we walked around Shilin night market
