Taipei First Day

A travel blog entry by conniefanta

Taiwan gave me a very different vibe in comparison to what I had expected; presumably because I based my view of Taiwan solely on her media (such as drama and music videos). I was hoping to see a relatively modern, stylish and vibrant city, just like Hong Kong.
