Day 3 was a Saturday so I chose to go for the city sights. Our first stop of the day was the National Palace Museum. We took the MRT to Shilin Station. Supposed to take a bus to the museum but we narrowly missed it so ended up taking a cab (RM13). In hindsight, should have just waited for the next bus.
One of the most famous exhibits was the Jadeite Cabbage (photo from Google Image) -
Lunch - beef noodles
Lunch - yam cake and fish ball soup
After lunch, we took the MRT to Ximending. Wow...... the Ximending Pedestrian Area was just huggggeeee!!! Very hip and happening place especially for the younger crowd.
We tried this frog jelly drink
The famous Ay-Chung Taiwanese mee sua.
No tables and had to queue up but it was so yummy!!! Much better than the mee sua I had at Shilin Night Market. I regretted not ordering a second bowl. No photo of my mee sua cos I had to hold the spoon in one hand and the bowl in the other hand :)
Red House Theatre
The view from the observatory deck was just breathtaking! My simple camera just couldn't capture the night shots properly but here's one anyway-
View from Taipei 101 tower
Headed back to the hotel after that as we had to pack our bags. Had to catch an early train the next morning for a 2D,1N trip to the Taroko National Park. When I did my planning, that was the main highlight of my Taiwan trip and it definitely lived up to my expectations!!
