Taiwan – Taipei (Lungsham Temple, Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial hall, Taipei 101)

One of the stops of our Asian trip was the island state of Taiwan. The ship docked in the eternally rainy city of Keelung, from where we took the train to the capital Taipei. We only had a few hours to explore the city, so we bought a one-day metro ticket. Taipei is very helpful for tourists because all the places of interest are just steps away from the metro station. Our first stop was a Chinese folk religious temple – Lungshan Temple. Then we looked at the Presidential Palace from the outside. We also visited the huge monument to the former President of the Republic of China – Chiang Kai-shek, as well as the magnificent buildings of the National Theater and the National Concert Hall, all in the Liberty Square. Of course, we couldn’t miss the city’s landmark, the most famous building in Taipei, resistant to the natural elements – Taipei 101, which is full of shops and restaurants and allows visitors to get to the 89th floor in 37 seconds with the world’s fastest elevator (2004-2015).
