TAIPEI MAIN STATION/MY HOSTEL


View from the 22nd Floor of my hostel



Taipei City :-)



Stayed at this hostel the 1st night and also one of the weekends when I was in Taiwan...



It was located above this shopping plaza :-)




Easycard...it's like Malaysia's touch & go but it has even more uses (can be used in 7 eleven, mrt, buses, train and entrance to certain parks/sight seeing places)


Waiting for Train :-P
TAIPEI 101


Took the MRT to Taipei City Hall station and hopped on the Free shuttle bus to Taipei 101 XD

From Afar...


Closer

Closer....



We're here...

Didn't go up :-( coz they were TOO many people/tourist, it's expensive and it's kinda weird going alone (like damn syiok sendiri) :-P

Taipei 101's mascot

The Taipei 101 shopping mall is JUST LIKE KLCC!!!




Taipei City Hall...


The infamous New York New York shopping mall which has closed down :-S



Shin Kong Mitsukoshi is a shopping chain in Taiwan...

TAIWAN STORYLAND


Taiwan storyland is located next to the hostel where I was staying at and this place is one of the "recommended" place in the tourist guide :-D




Taiwan Storyland's mascot



The ticket...the normal adult price for the ticket is NT$250=RM25 but I bought the "premium" ticket at NT$280=RM28 and they would give you NT$150=RM15 worth of coupon to be exchanged with gifts/souvenirs :-)
