We travel Taipei, Taiwan for only $20 (640NT)! We ate SO MUCH Taiwanese food and Taiwan street food: rice congee, fried pork, milk tea, cold sesame noodles, meatball soup, a scallion pancake, fried chicken, an oyster pancake, and stinky tofu. We visited a Taipei night market and ate a TON of Taipei street food, saw Dihua Street (dry goods market), the Xia Hai City God Temple, Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall, Liberty Square & museum, Waishuangxi, and the Taipei lookout point – ALL in one day, and ALL for 20 dollars!
For dinner, we went to the ShiLin Night Market (士林) on WenLin Lu, close to JianTan MRT station. That was my favorite part of the day!

My name is Kevin Cook. I’m originally from Dallas, TX, but I’ve been living and traveling in Asia since 2013.
After graduating from university in 2011 and working a few unfulfilling jobs, I saved enough money to move to Asia and work as a teacher for a few years. That opportunity allowed me to travel around and experience new foods and cultures, and ignited a passion for blogging and making videos.
Now I travel full-time and make videos with the goal that I can encourage YOU to pursue your own dream of overseas traveling and living.
If you enjoy watching my videos, you can help me grow my channel by giving my videos a ‘thumbs up’, leaving a comment, sharing them, and subscribing!
Thank you 🙂
