Taipei, Taiwan

Contemporary Taipei is a fascinating contrast of traditional and modern. It's a unique less well-known destination with so much to offer; from night markets to 8 storey shopping centres, from street food to world class restaurants, from magnificant mountains to the Taipei101 tower. There was so much to experience - and it was just one city in Taiwan. Seriously, one week there was just a lick of what Taiwan has to offer. Oh did I mention how cheap everything there is (AUS$ --> TWD) :D:D

The view whilst experiencing Taiwan's traditional tea culture. Located in one of Taipei's most famous destinations, 'Jiufen'; an old street that inspired Hayao Miyuzaki's 'Spirited Away'. It's a real life spirited away :D
