Self Tour Taipei Shopping Trip
6th - 11th May 2010
Last year shopping trip was at Japan. This year same companion Ling, she suggest to Taiwan-Taipei. This is my first visit to Taiwan. Plan it in urge. Took about a week to booked everything. From air ticket to hotels & place to shop.
Took Air Asia to fly with. Meaning we can save some flight cost on clothes. lolzz. more then 4 hours flight from Malaysia to Taiwan Tao Yuan Airport.
Go with 1 big luggage. Inner hide a small cabin size luggage. I guess is more then enough ya.
After checking in we went to have lunch. This is a must eat recommend in book. But I feel it just normal. Have a warm up shopping at Ximending area, which can find quite a lot of fashionable stuff in fair price.
Dumpling my favorite.
Breakfast at the coffee shop beside out stay.
Due to those shop mostly open around 10.30am -11am. We shopped into their local pharmacy. COSMED. Ling get crazy when saw My dairy mask. Is must more cheaper compare to Malaysia. 2 boxes for only NT$ 370 = RM +-37. Ling grab 10 over boxes XD. I'm normal of course, 6 boxes for me n my mom, my sis. I spent Rm 500+ in there.
Took MRT down to Wufenpu. Whole noon there, only explore 1/4 of it. I grabbed 8 pairs of shoes here. Ling too. Clothes.. 10 over pcs. shopped till forgot to lunch. Tips to shop there:* Bring enough money. Thing is cheap here. Don't get regret if you didn't buy.*Get 2 or more to get cheaper price. *Bring a big bag to carry. * Clothes cannot try on. * Don't forget a comfy shoe to walk on.
This husky cafe is just opposite out hotel. Hang out there for a drink & photo snap with their dogs.
Hello Kitty Dessert house. Ling's favorite. She insist we must go.
Average of those dessert cost RM 30 above with a free jelly and drink.
Like a G hotel's big orange '98'
Night view at 101 shopping mall.
New York New York shopping mall. Heard my friend say it gonna close down soon.
Hot spring pool in room. 6 min to reach the water level.
Don't be suprise..
Can't go any where cause is raining at night. We had a foot massage at the Sato Spa. 2 for only RM99
This is really a shopping trip.
If you ask me: Do you luv travel? I will answer: Only Japan & South Africa. I luv planning, but not packing. I luv the excited mood while waiting to landed but not the mood when wanna fly home. But I certainly will back to Taiwan for a shopping again~
