6th time in Taipei
A very pleasant city to be in. Modern which means wifi/3G everywhere (who can live without these days), yet if you just step a little beyond, the old world charm is all around. People are more pleasant than in other major Asian cities (HK/SG). Food is affordable. Street food is cheap, restaurants are of course a little pricier but set meal portions almost always are big enough to share. Train travel allows for lovely day trips out. Try Keelung, Hsinchu for very manageable day trips,
Insider Tip:Elephant mountain is a great way to see the 101.
