Taipei day 2

January 18, 2013 | 10 comments so far - join the discussion!

I’m sitting at Time cafe at the moment – which is near where I’m staying in Taipei. I’m having Seafood soup as my dinner tonight because I need to rehydrate after shopping for 9 hours straight.

Today, I visited Zhonghao Road. This area is supposably the place for fashionistas. All the girls and boys apparently look like models here (quoted by another blog I read) – I would definitely agree that it is the most fashionable but probably not about the model-looking people.

SOGO and Mingyao also live on this road.

I also tried some street food today!!! I struggled with ordering food, but eventually got through it!

After shopping on Zhonghao road, I caught a cab to Taipei101. At first I thought it was like an observatory tower like Sydney’s sky tower but it is actually a shopping mall with the observatory on the 6th(?) floor!!! I didn’t go in because there was a 30-40mins wait but it’s definitely something worth visiting. I’m just lazy #noshame

Here are some pics from Taipei 101!

Just a few streets below Taipei 101 is Linjiang night markets!! I’ve wanted to visit a night markets since I got here so I took a quick cab ride down!!
There are so many little things to buy and eat there!! I had my favourite street snack – Smelly Tofu!!

I bought these flats for NT 390~ which is equivalent to about AUD 13!!

Okay next (yes I had a longggg day), I went around the streets near the night markets. The Linjiang markets is only one long street btw.
The street intersecting is actually a whole street filled with pets!!! I got overly excited when I found huskies and shibainus!

It’s abit cruel that all these pets were in cages, but it was still very entertaining to visit each shop to observe the cute puppies and kittens!! There are sooo many couples here!!

Okayyy time to head homeeee. Last meal of the night.

    I’m so sad I didn’t get to go to 101 when I went to Taiwan last year! The night markets are really fun though, lots of food that I’ve never seen before!
