What every tourist needs to do – visit the touristy places!
First stop, Longshan Temple.
It was so crowded when we went there, and we forgot that it was the weekend. It was a feast for the senses: You can see all the vibrant colors of the temple, smell the incense and hear people praying. Most importantly, you feel an inner calm when you see people being so calm and praying.
Second stop, Songshan Creative Park
This is a no brainer one of my favorite places we have visited on our 2nd day in Taipei. I’ve listed this down immediately on our draft when we are coming up what to see in Taipei couple of months before our trip. Initially, I wanted to visit as much creative parks as possible and just visiting one was already a big check on my list. The visuals of Sonshan Creative Park are everything. This is another place I wish to see again when I visit Taipei soon in the future.
Just outside the creative park, lined streets (or alleyway) of cute cafes and restaurants. Too bad, we were too starved and craving for some real food and not just coffee at that time or else we ended up doing café hopping instead (mental list to do that next time!)
Last – Taipei 101
We initially wanted to avoid this place as we are torn/ unsure whether we want to visit the observatory of Taipei 101 touted as the highest observatory and building over towered by Burj Khalifa. Instead, we went inside the mall, checked the price of the observatory and just decided to pass it that day and maybe come back on our last day if we really want to visit the observatory, but we cannot let being tourists and take our picture in the LOVE.
‘Til the next pose & post!
