Taipei 101 and Skyline

Taipei Hidden Gem | Zhong Pu Shan

If you’re in Taipei and want a chance to view the Taipei skyline and Taipei 101, where do you go? Most people, both locals, and tourists, will probably answer Elephant Mountain (Xiangshan).

Entrance to Ningxia Night Market

Travel in Taiwan | Ningxia Night Market

Lil Too Close to Friends | Beitou Springs

Finally, after over six months, I’m writing a new post. Today’s post is going to be a quick one; I’d like to start things off slow again. I’m sure you have some questions: Why the long hiatus?; What have I been up to so far?; Have I been keeping true to the spirit of onethingoneweek? I’d like to answer some of these questions.
