    check online for the Taipei MRT map and decide from there
    shopping is always good for the family, night markets too

    there is also a wholesale street called wu fen pu (i think)
    lots of kids clothes and street fashion

    Will be going to wu fen pu on the last day of the group tour so for the extra day I might not go there again.

    Ya, found out the hotel for the extra day on the 30th is 2 min from xi men MRT and located right smack in ximending. So should be spending my time at ximending and at the taiwan museum (courtesy of taiwan tourism board - see earlier posts)

    I've been to taipei 2 years ago and found out for myself they mostly see "winter" clothes which is not suitable for SG wear. I'll will consider Yu Ren Ma Tou...need to find out where first.

    I contemplated going to "xiao ren guo" but found out its located outside of Taipei and must take 3 trips (MRT > Train > bus)...damn waste time...LoL!
    Dun blame the camera...blame the one behind the viewfinder :bsmilie:
    My Flickr..pls leave comments!

    Here are some sample pics from my recent trip to Taipei.

    You can use it as reference as to what catches your eye.

    Off the city a bit, I'd suggest JiuFen, Yingge or North East Coast

    it is a river/water front kind of place, located at the river entrance facing ocean, the brigde is longer and higher, look very much like our indoor stadium waterfront bridge, alongside many food and coffee bars, alongside many fishing boats and a fish market centre, there's a coast guard station too.. It is a good place to shoot sunset ! further in is a city with a nite market.

    if u love to walk and see, Danshui MRT is accessible.
