Day 2 in Taipei, shopping spree – shopped in Taipei 101, Hankyu 統一阪急百貨 (where UNIQLO is located) and Shinkong Mitsukoshi 新光三越百貨 near Taipei City Hall. All of this departmental store are within walking distance and there is connecting bridge to bring you there. Visited Taipei 101 Observatory, one thing that amazed me is the high speed elevator which took only 45 sec to travel 88 floors!!!
3 floors to visit, first they brought you to the observatory at 89th floor (entrance fees NTD400), then you can walk up to the 91st floor which is the outdoor observatory. Went down to 88th floor is the Gemstone Coral Museum.
After shopping in Taipei City Hall, travelled from there and the next destination is Houshanpi Wufenpu wholesale market. There I tried some delicious snack:
Shida Night Market 师大夜市 (Xindian line: Taipower Building 台电大楼站, take exit 3)
