    Taipei main station: Exit M8. Lots of hostels and hotels around that area, local food and restaurants (Japanese, Korean, western). Great coffee shops (such as Notch)! Also high street stores such as Uniqlo, Watsons, 7-11. Small hub of an area, but super convenient and easy access to transport all around Taipei.

    I’m so surprised that you hadn’t been too the Presidential Palace and the extremely beautiful square across from the palace called the opera house square?

    Hey Gabe! Kind of a funny story, I was just out filming that area in the beginning at night when I came back and this popped up in my suggested videos. You're right that that area actually comes alive at night, and Huaxi Night Market is also known as 'Snake Alley' because you can find a few restaurants serving snake dishes. It also is the old red-light district of Taipei, until they outlawed prostitution in the early 90's (however, you will still see prostitutes working in the alleys there). When this global unicorn is over, you should really come spend more time here. I think you'd really enjoy and be surprised by the country (as I have been). If anyone is curious as to what these markets are like at night, feel free to watch my video on it:

    Two little wood thrown on the ground
    It bounces, three answers
    1 two sides up, God is laughing but no answer
    2 2 sides down. God rejects.
    3. 1up and 1 down, God has an answer for you. Go draw a number the answer is the stick.

    Generally it's a poem or two. Plus explanations.

    Hey, Iam a Taiwanese and I live in Taipei, and I watch your video and I don't think you have found the most famous temple, Longshan temple, it's a pity. And since there have been a lot of back packing traveling vlog filmed and put on youtube. It will be much more appreciated if you take a better look at this city, Taipei or this country,Taiwan.
    What I have said so is because you have take your backpack in front of you and protect your backpack with your backpack when you were in the MRT, this is kind of wired because Taiwan is rated as the 2nd safety country in the world. You don't have to worry about pickpocket problem constantly when you travel around Taiwan. Wish you will take a look of my message, and have a longer time planned to have a better look of Taiwan. And better feel that the praise from all over the world who had ever been to Taiwan is the most beautiful scenery in Taiwan is Taiwanese people. Taiwan No. 1.
    Always welcome and looking forward to your visit next time.
