Maybe it’s because my husband’s family is there or perhaps it is because the food is nothing short of amazing, but I love Taipei! The night market, the dumplings, the fried chicken, the egg cake, I seriously gorge myself every time I am there. Taiwan isn’t necessarily on everyone’s list, but it certainly is worth a food tour. The first time I visited the Taipei 101 was the tallest building in the world, I think it has since been surpassed, but the building style and exploring it’s solution to earthquakes makes it a site worth visiting.
