"Another hometown" Taiwan by Applelyn
Taiwan Travel Guide: 61 reviews and 185 photos
Ali Shan is a famous mountain in Taiwan. It has a unique "litlle train" but the concept of moving a train up steep slopes is very dangerous. In order to view sunrise from mountains range or rather in the midst of clouds, you have to be at the foot of the mountain at about 5 am, take the train up to the summit and wait :) Remember to eat the piping hot spring onion pancake there...sedap!!
This is a change from the mountains. Taipei is surrounded by mountain ranges and in order to reach the sea, you had to tunnel through them :) Strong gust of wind make you gasp. "Try it during typhoon season"--A Tip reserved for enemies :P This oversees the ocean and the waves just keep roaring in. A very nice experience. The sculpture depicts how fishermen there fight for a living especially during typhoon season.
This is my favourite place. It make me feel "BIG". This place houses the world :) Mini world as its name speaks for itself...shows the world famous attractions and architecture.
- Pros:Good Subway, Nice Food, Lots of Foliage
- Cons:Language Barrier, Traffic Jams, "Raining" of Betel nuts
- In a nutshell:A city in the midst of a jungle
