... the heat anymore (even with AC breaks in some of the buildings).
Our next stop was to Ximen station. There is a market just outside the station and we walked around. It was still quite hot outside so we went to eat iced desserts. The place was pretty packed, but the dessert was quite nice. It was the perfect afternoon snack for a blistering hot day!
We walked around some more and were shown a ...

They referred me to down the street but the next store was also sold out T.T. Luckily, there were two other telecom stores next door that had SIM cards available. I opted for a cheap $10 USD unlimited data plan for 5 days. This way I won’t have any trouble getting lost or finding cool new places to check out while on the move!

I highly reccommend this hotel to everyone, whether you're in Taipei for sightseeing or business. Unbelievably good location right next to Taipei Main Station which houses the MRT, TRA, HSR and Bus station. A number of shopping malls around and lots of places to dine nearby.
Hotel staff are friendly and will help you plan your trip.
