Day 7 - Taipei

A port area

Socks anyone?
Many shops selling interesting stuffs.

Lunch in a local restaurant



Millennium Hot Spring - Public Open Air Hot Spring (NT40, S$1.80)

It was quite an experience dipping in the crowded public hot spring. It was open-air, which was good. But it was really crowded (not a place for couple who want private space), and I managed to talk to the local grannies while I was dipping in the pool. I was happy to converse with them in simple Hokkien, and they would tell me where to avoid in the pool where it was boiling hot.

"Taipei 101 (Chinese台北101 / 臺北101), formerly known as the Taipei World Financial Center, is a landmark skyscraper located in Xinyi DistrictTaipeiTaiwan. The building ranked officially as the world's tallest from 2004 until the opening of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai in 2010."

The pendulum at the top that stabilizes the building

Not the best day, as it was foggy and raining.

Fogged out.

Taiwan's PingLang - my first time. 
Not too bad!!! A bit of numbing sensation.
