The day started with the long coach ride back to Taipei, calling in at a Wood Sculpture Area which was a real disappointment compared to Chiang Mai and not even worth a photograph! So, the first point of note was lunch, which was held in a very strange restaurant. I won't try to describe it - here are the pics!
After lunch we headed to the most famous building in Taipei - Taipei 101, home to a shopping mall and, of course, one of the tallest buildings in the world. We took the opportunity to visit the observation deck, so took the high speed elevator (note the speed in the pics below) to the top and took some pics. The final pic is of a proud teddy showing off the latest stamp in his passport!
After Taipei 101, we were taken back to the hotel - end of trip. We had a full morning before we needed to fly back, so had a walk around the hotel area and found a few buildings of interest, including a local temple - all good material for some final photos.
So, there you have it, our trip to Taiwan. It was good to be able to go and see some new places - but it is unlikely we will go back. We have a home in China, and Taiwan is not all that different. If we do go back, it will be to stay in one place and explore ourselves - coach tours are simply not for us!
Take care… Trevor, Shanhong & Teddy xx
