sixth day @ taiwan
our last day @ taipei. we went to 永和豆漿 again for breakfast. not that the food are nice but just dunno wat to eat
after breakfast we went to 西門町 for last minute shopping. we found this swing restaurant"逗魚泡沫紅茶". it's deco is special that you don't find in singapore. it has an ocean theme with wooden plank swing seats attached to the roof using thick ropes. i ordered their tea set; a drink plus a cake.
we walked over to Yuan Ling Street (沅陵街) aka Shoe Street, it's a 10 mins walk from 西門町. there are quite a few shoe shops selling at reasonable cheap price (compared to 西門町) but limited varieties as most shops selling similar design of shoes. go unless have extra time if not just give it a miss.
walked back to 西門町, randomly choosen 樂や燒烤 (next to Rainbow Hotel) for charcoal bbq cum steamboat buffet at NT$438 including tax. lots of varieties :: beef, pork, mutton, vegetables, mochi, sweet potato, mushroom etc. after the meal you got more than 20 favors of ice cream to choose from: haagen-dazs, meiji and movenpick. very worth the money!
after the sinful lunch, we rush back to hotel pick-up our luggage and rush to take free go bus which fetch us from Flower Hotel, 1-min walking distance from city inn (note: must call free go in advance for the arrangement) . we reached airport before 5pm and after check-in, we had our dinner at burger king. take note that the airport has very few restaurants, unlike changi airport.
airport >> home sweet home H
