TripAdvisor Reviews Evergreen Laurel Hotel Taipei
Travel Blogs from Taipei
... we could get some food (thank goodness for dim sum) and then once we'd tried and failed again to visit the Taipei 101 (they close it in a thunderstorm) it was time to head back to Hong Kong.
Overall, Taipei was lovely. Everywhere seemed so much more spacious than Hong Kong, although a tad on the deserted side. People were helpful and friendly, and attractions were interesting. It just might have been a bit better if we'd been able to work out what there actually was to do!
... National Palace Museum. So much for it being a public holiday for people to spend with their family, I think every second person in the city was at the museum. We checked out a lot of the changes over the years to their porcelain, bronze and jade. To see the progression from there early history to today shows just how far technology has come. Then it was off to Martyr's Shrine (Taiwan's Buckingham Palace) ...
... building. The design is supposed to resemble that of a bamboo, each section appearing like the joints on a bamboo stick. It was quite impressive but then a lot of Taipei looked quite impressive.
We went to a very large Buddhist temple and our guide explained to us that worshippers leave produce like fruit or biscuits to be prayed over, they wash them with smoke from these giant urn things and then take them away again when purified. ...
... fed and exhausted (thanks Johno - what a week). Cocktails in the best bar in town, a Taipei thunderstorm, an authentic Taiwanese friend and subsequently a beautiful necklace, bubble tea, white turnip cake (the best thing), a traditional Taiwanese breakfast of warm salty soy milk soup, and a hell of a lot more but I just heard my boarding call...
Catch you all in Paris.
... other than we noticed
that the passengers were very polite, friendly and orderly. A little girl
played happily with Indi in the check-in queue. It was a long flight (14 hours)
but fortunately we were given a bassinet seat and Indi still fitted in it so we
got a good few hours watching movies and sleeping on the plane whilst Indi had
a good sleep as it was night time in Mexico.
We arrived in Taipei late and were pleasantly surprised to
be shown ...
