This is what happens when you try tai chi for the first time in Taipei. We were completely out of our element at the temple but so amused with how clueless I’m sure we looked to the locals. Right after we head to the town of Wulai just south of Taipei to finally soak ourselves in one of many hot springs in the area. It was hot, cold, and sometimes just right but Yen Town was the perfect place to soothe our aching muscles. If that wasn’t enough, we wrapped up our day at a hip new place called Addiction Aquatic Development and then tried our hand at the favourite Taiwanese past-time of shrimp fishing.
With a days left to go on our trip, we made sure to make it count making a fast-forward race to have Din Tai Fung for the famed xiao long bao and buy pineapple pastry/cake for friends and family back home.
And just like that, our 12 days in Taiwan trip comes to a close. I have to thank Joshua of MyTaiwanTour for this episode and introducing us to his tai chi class, and showing us Wulai.
