Winter in taiwan, Taipei: Flower 3 - Part 3

Day 3

National Taiwan University

Upon roaming around in this huge university it reminds me of my beloved alma mater  De La Salle University - Dasmarinas. Both are famous of school film shooting location, huge, lots of trees, lots of students (of course!)  and both had  man made lake inside the university.

    Address: No. 1, Section 4, Roosevelt Rd, Da’an District, Taipei City, Taiwan 10617

Achieved ang F3 look because we are here now in National Taiwan University also know as the Ying de University in Meteor Garden. 



Ate Allen

Most of the students are riding a bike and walking. 

While in the university, we tried this "student" meal. Its a  mixed of fried chicken and pork with veggies.
I must say that its affordable and really a huge serving.
Pag student ata dapat madami kinakain hahahah

Man made lake is under construction that time

Hall way

Chiang Kai-shek

The National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall is a national monument, landmark and tourist attraction erected in memory of Chiang Kai-shek, former President of the Republic of China. It is located in Zhongzheng District, Taipei, Taiwan. Wikipedia
Speaking of  "HUGE" here's another huge structures in taipei.
I was amaze how this huge building  and wide space created. It is literally huge, people are so tiny.
Maybe chiang kai shek is giant hehehe joke!

Only with Kath this time. Ate Allen had to meet her friend somewhere.

Huge Gate

Taipei 101
We went here to buy last minute pasalubong of the famous nougat and the name of the brand is "Sugar and Spice".  We are looking for that brand since our day 1 but there is no in ximending area and in any night market.  We try our luck here in Taipei 101 and bought it.

Ang sosyal na mall!

Longshan Temple
Lungshan Temple of Manka is a Chinese folk religious temple in Wanhua District, Taipei, Taiwan. The temple was built in Taipei in 1738 by settlers from Fujian during Qing rule in honor of Guanyin. Wikipedia

Longshan is located one block north of Wanhua station.

Address: No. 211, Guangzhou Street, Wanhua District, Taipei City, Taiwan 10853

Ninja Kath :D



NB. Rude Chinese tourist 
As a Filipino tourist we respect the culture of other countries because its their norms.  While we are in Longshan temple, some rude Chinese tourist didn't respect the temple. There is a group of old Chinese tourist ladies that eating the "offering" in the praying area. They are taking it and keeps on eating the offers in every table. We are not a Buddhist  and we respect the temple BUT those Chinese tourist are so so so rude!  Tanda tanda na di alam ano ibig sabihin ng mga offerings. tsss

Taipei Huaxi st. Tourust Night Market
Just beside longshan temple there is another night market. We also went there to stroll and bought some pasalubong.


MRT Taipei to Taoyuan Airport
The best way to get from Taipei to Taoyuan Airport is to take an express airport bus near Taipei Main station. Definitely it is the fastest way to reach the airport taking only 35 minutes from Taipei Main Station to both Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. NTD 160
We tried the express train from Taipei main station to Taoyuan airport.

Spending another night here in Taoyuan airport.

Although, taiwan is not popular place for tourist destination, I still want to visit again this country, there is a lot of place to visit within Taipei like in Tamsui. I wish I stay longer for this trip. Didn't expect the rainy weather huhuhu. Our schedule in Day 1 had stopped and become limited because its really raining and we don't have enough sleep that time. I'm still proud for my self, Kat and ate allen for the successful trip.
