As you might have gathered from my last post, I loved my trip to Taiwan. The people were friendly and outside of Singapore and Malaysia, I felt that they were the most culturally similar to my family out of all the Chinese speaking places that I have been to. And being an urban creature, I loved taking in the street scenes and buildings. Here’s a sample of what I saw.


The view from my hotel room in Taipei, with the iconic Taipei 101 in the distance.


A side street near the hotel.


7-11 is ubiquitous throughout Taiwan, even in the most remote parts.

The trendy and brash Ximenting district of Taipei.

Even the manhole covers were interesting.

I will follow up this post later with one showing the older side of Taiwan.

Until then, here’s me hugging a giant stone penis in Alishan.
