Taiwan: 台北景點 Taipei Sights

After a good night sleep, it's time to feed our stomach! The restaurant at the hotel offered both traditional Taiwanese and western breakfast. I fancy congee so congee it was for me, not a second thought! In fact, I had congee every morning for my 1 week stay in Taiwan!

There were a lot to see in Taipei, really wish we could stay a bit longer.

忠烈祠 Martyr's Shrine

A Memorial to honour the memory of those who lost their lives during the establishment of the Republic of China. The building built in 1969 resembles Ming dynasty architecture.

國立故宮博物院 National Palace Museum

World's largest assemblage of priceless Chinese art treasures, one which spans over China's nearly 5,000 year of history. It's a shame that not much photos taken here. The place is huge and we didn't have time to run around taking picture of the whole architecture.

The song is embedded in my photo slide on the right. It is at the bottom of the slide. You can turn it off there :(

eastcoastlife:
We followed guided tour so all our breakfasts are included, and all in the hotel, so we didn't go out to search for breakfast.

I didn't go up to 101, no time! That's the downside following a tour! :(
