Voice of Travelers to Taipei
My stay in Taipei
My daughter took me to Taipei for a vacation after I lost my husband. We traveled by Air Macau. I traveled on a business class ticket.The flight attendants kept on checking on us and the pilot kept us updated. We arrived in Taipei a bit late, so we just checked in our hotel and rested for the night. Other than the liveliness of Taipei city center, we also enjoyed its outskirts. We visited the Taipei Zoo, Dahu Park, Maokong Gondola, and the National Palace Museum. What I loved most about Taipei was the food. The restaurants in Taipei did not only have delicious Taiwanese dishes but also Japanese, Indian and Italian cuisines.
Study Tour in Taipei
My undergraduate study project involved collecting historical data from Dutch colonies. I chose Taipei as one of my sample cities since it has a very well-preserved history. I traveled by air with Eva Air. The plane had comfortable seats with enough leg room. They served us a very nice meal, and we had access to Wifi onboard. In Taiwan, I visited the well-maintained museums. My favorites were the National Palace Museum, 2-28 Memorial Museum, and National Taiwan Museum. I also visited Taipei zoo which has wildlife from almost all the parts of the world, but the best was the Giant Panda House.
