A Short Vacation To Taiwan (2005-04-15)
By doing homework before we took off for this trip, we had a trouble-free holiday in Taipei. There is endless information about Taiwan on the Internet that helps one work out an itinerary, locate tourist spots and their access routes, or find restaurants etc. I was even able to decide on which "must-try" restaurant to go to on which day before we left Tokyo. I happened to have had picked up a detailed map of Taipei city in Tokyo last year and I marked all the places we wanted to go on it, thus saving us valuable time getting lost and looking for places in Taipei, something we didn't have a whole lot of time doing.
I went to Taiwan with a tour group with my dad in my early
teens. The tour cramped many cities and sightseeing places in a
relatively short time making the trip feel very rushed. This time
we would follow our own itinerary and eat at restaurants of our choice.
KL's first trip to Taiwan, so we were
both very excited about our little vacation. We were there from
April 4th to 9th. I'm going to record our trip in the style of a
journal, breaking it down day by day. This way, it will be easier
for me to sort out the pictures I want to post since they are already
in sequence. Also, all the prices quoted in the text are in US
dollars for ease of understanding.
Tomorrow will be Day 1 of our trip.
