Taipei itinerary 4 days blog — Day 1: Get familiar with Taipei
Morning: Breakfast in Taiwanese style at the shop of Yonghe Doujiang chain.
Address: No. 33, Section 2, Hankou St, Wanhua District.
This is a traditional Taiwanese breakfast type shop chain, quite crowded. If you is near the Main Train Station, walking is not too far, or you can go to another shop of this chain in Yonghe (Address: No.284 Section2 Yonghe Road).
This shop is always crowded and usually has to queue for a long time, you can get the number first but also do not sit at the table right away but have to wait for everyone to finish eating, the staff arranged the table to be seated. Some signature delicious dishes here such as Dim Sum, sandwich dumplings, fried noodles. The dumplings here have many colors, looks pretty. The meal we call includes a hot Dim Sum portion, fried noodles, sandwich dumplings, drinks including Milo and hot soy milk.
Huashan 1914 Creative Park
This is a recreation area for young people like the Common Ground in Seoul with a lot of shops selling souvenirs and extremely beautiful handmade items. One thing I really like here is beautiful corners for taking photos and selfies, quiet resting rows of chairs and walls that covered by the leaves, look so vintage.
This Huashan 1914 area also has fairs, exhibitions, cinemas and art classes. In addition, sometimes there are outdoor music performances. You can have lunch right at the eateries or super cool cafes.

Afternoon: Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall
This is an extremely large architectural complex with an inner precinct of a wide yard and surrounding buildings. Opposite the Memorial Hall is the entrance gates or Freedom Square Memorial Arch, on either side is the National Theater National Theater and the National Concert Hall. The Memorial Hall is built of white marble with a blue tile roof on a red background representing the national flag and the value of freedom, located at the end of the campus with a pedestrian campus, welcome gate. To reach here you will step through 89 steps leading up to the museum, each staircase represents one year in the life of Chiang Kai-shek.
Although most people come here to admire the grandeur of the complex, the majestic of Chiang Kai-shek monument, but for me, I like the garden, the lotus pond and the bridge at a small corner of precinct. Enter here like stepping into a Chinese ink wash painting with a very vintage landscape that brings a strange, peaceful feeling.
