Day 4: Taipei

Taipei Main Station Underground Mall
The merchandise were like those pasar malam stuff. It was a waste of time.

Zhong Xiao East Road
It is another shopping haven. I took the mrt to Zhong Xiao Fu Xing and then walked along the Zhong Xiao East road towards Zhong Xiao Dun Hua mrt. There are three Sogo department stores and a lot of small shops along the road. It was another great shopping day. :) Overall I felt that Taipei shopping is more affordable than Hong Kong. I don't mind visiting here again next time.

Taipei 101

The old Chinese coins made up the 101.

Can you feel the love? :P

We had our dinner here at Jiu Ru. The xiao long bao were so good. I didn't have chance to try the Din Tai Fung version here but this one was much better than the Singapore's Din Tai Fung.

It took us 37 seconds from 5th to 89th floor.

The view of Taipei from 89th floor.

The damper is used to stabilize the tower against earthquake, typhoon and wind.

Check out the date of birth. It was 101 too.
