Travel Tales: Taipei Day 2

If our first day was all about halls and parks, our second day was spent mostly on Buddhist temples. Again, majority of these places have stations built near them so it’s really very easy to go from one tourist spot to another.

And since we got back at our hotel a little late last night after the night market, we started our day at around 10 in the morning and had breakfast at this little take-out sushi place near the train station.

Our first stop was Confucius Temple which is one of the most famous in their city.

Like what I said, I love Taipei. And here is the view from the station going to the temple.

Cute little Confucius figurines waiting to greet you at the entrance. 😀

Aside from the beautiful temple, the place also has a lot of OOTD-worthy spots and walls like so, hahaha.

Next stop was Longshan and Baoan Temples, which are just walking distance from the first temple. BTW, try to look for stamp pads when visiting temples or even train stations. They have a lot of different designs for each temple so make sure you at least have a piece or two of blank paper for souvenir. 🙂

So after some temple-running, we explored the area around the temples and saw this little street near a school that looks more like a Sunday wet and dry market. While walking, we saw a small milk tea shop that serves really cheap and really huge milk tea – milk tea that’s bigger than my face. Seriously! And so of course we had to try it!

We walked for a few more blocks and looked for a place to have (another) late lunch. The building also has a grocery shop so we decided to look around and check it out before heading back to the hotel to get some rest before heading on to another night market for dinner!
