Exploring Taipei Part 2: Taipei 101 and Din Tai Fung

After exploring Longshan Temple and Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial in Taipei, we headed over to Taipei 101. It was such a neat place with tons of shopping and restaurants. It was full of all of the high end fashion like stores like Gucci and Louis Vuitton. We stopped at a cute cafe and I ate a delicious macaroon. We then waited in line for the fastest elevator in the world to take us to the top. The views from the top were so cool! It was fun to feel like we were above the world for a few minutes.

After Taipei 101 we decided to head home and shower since it had been a hot and humid day of walking around. We got ready and headed out for dinner. I had heard of a restaurant with a couple of branches called Din Tai Fung. I wasn't sure what to expect since I had never had dim sum, but we hopped on the subway and headed to one of the branches in a giant mall. The wait was so long, so we shopped and watched them make the dumplings while we waited. We were so hungry by the time we were seated around 8:30, but it was 100% worth the wait! It was absolutely amazing. We had all sorts of dumplings with different fillings in different sauces. I had never tasted anything like it. I am still craving it to this day. 

Next time I will share our experience at the mountain mining town of Jiufen, one of the things I was most excited for!
