Back to this time lastweek, I was excited to pack stuff for my 2 day trip in Taipei. The reason for my visiting is to watch Rainie Yang’s concert :))
If let me talk about Rainie (楊丞琳), it might take me whole long day haha. She is the idol who I really like for 12 years.
Okay, we are talking about Taipei now ^^ All you need to prepare before youre trips:
– A hotel: I only have two days and I have done sooo many researches to decice which district I should stay! Ximending, Xinyi, Daan are my shortlist then I finally got the Pacific Business Hotel in Xinyi. Among all hotel on agoda, Pacific Business Hotel is a modern hotel. I mean the furniture is western style lol. Im not really interested in Chinese style beds =))) Also, they are in very good location. You can walk like 15 mins to get to Taipei 101, Xinguang Sanyue (新光三越） area and Xinyi Rd （信義路四段）. All by walking so you know how good location it is right 🙂
– A wifi pocket: Book it either on Kkday or Kklook, they all give you the service from Unit Traveller. Price is cheap for a pocket which allows 5 devices to connect at the same time. The thing is easy to pick up and return even the store is located in Arrival Hall. When you arrive, finishing all checking, you get your luggage then turn right to have the devices. Before leaving, you can walk from Departure Hall to Arrival Hall (5 mins actually) to return.
– A easy card: This card is used for transportation. All kinds like bus, metro … You can topup it everywhere. Just drop in any 7-11, Familymart to ask for everything and top up your card!
– An umbrella: It is a must have item if you visit Taipei these days. Its raining whenever it wants lol. Prepare for you or you can have a cutie one in Familymart like mine
I only have 1 and half day in which I spent my Sunday afternoon and night at Rainie’s concert in Taipei Arena. So basically I just walked around Xinyi
Taipei 101 with many choices: shopping (all brands), cultural exploration (taipei 101 observatory and tea shopping). If you want to buy tea, just go up to 5th floor of Taipei 101, all brands are there. I bought Tenren for myself 🙂
Cosmed near Xinyi Anhe station (opposited) give you girls all the things you need. One point is my beauty diaries only sold here with all kinds and good deals.
Also, Taiwan is really famous with their bakery. Dont hesitate to try one 🙂 I have a small breakfast in a bakery shop (Sewr) near Xinyi Anhe station! Cheap, delicious and friendly staff.
Comparing with Seoul, I used bus in Taipei.Bus driver here are soo friendly and useful. Just ask, in either English or Chinese, they will give you the answer with a smile. Very impressed!
I can give you guys some my recommended area: Xinyi, Daan, Dunhua Nanlu (Dunhua South Rd) They are famous with fashion, food and scenary.
I will have post about Rainie’s concert next time 🙂
Merry Xmas everybody!!!
