Taiwan in one word: Scooterland
All we did was go visit temples and stuff. Nothing special or particularly interesting. Saw this little statue at 佛光山. It was sooo cute.
Taiwan is famous for their snacks and night markets.
Day 2 consisted of more temples but also an awesome afternoon at a theme park. Opposite the theme park is a really nice building and garden. I wonder if anyone recognises it.
Another night market that night where I tried this really cool ice cream. It was green tea icecream but have a look at it. Came out like a soft serve machine. NT$25 or just under AUD$1. Also drank another Taiwanese speciality, Paw Paw Smoothie kinda thing. Its like paw paw and milk blended together, tasted sooooo nice. Last thing we bought was a very weird sausage thing. It was a sausage of glutinous rice cut down the middle with a taiwanese sausage in it. I didn't particularly like it.
Day 3-5 Taipei
Food wise there wasn't really anything special in Taipei. Visited many places, temples, military performances. Ate this sesame chicken noodle soup at one of the night markets in Taiwan. It smelt just like sesame flavoured nissin instant noodles. Followed by a bowl of Bak Kut Teh (in taiwan???) not that good though. All this was washed down by a massive cup of Bubble Milk Tea with Pearls :)
This was a really shortened version of my trip, I'm sure I've bored you enough already.
So how is everyone else's holidays going?
