The Port was opened as a commercial port in 1863. In 1872 a navel defence headquarters was set up here and later the railroad was linked to the port. It wasn’t until 1886 that the first wharf was completed despite the port being in operation for around 100 years prior to that. When the Japanese occupied the area during 1895-1945 a 5 stage development plan was initiated. During World War II in 1939 the port was heavily bombed and almost all of the port facilities were destroyed.
Location : Keelung, North Taiwan
The Combat Zone
The Combat Zone sits comfortably in several small streets and alleys along Linsin North Road. It is an area of many seedy bars and hangouts, many with large quantities of women just waiting for that "perfect" man (in this case, perfect means a man with lots of money!). However, interspersed in the Zone are several good bars and pubs such as Patina. Just be careful in this area, especially if a lady asks you to buy her a drink!

MRT (Metropolitan Rapid Transit):
MRT is planned to solve the serious traffic congestion in Taipei. I like this rail mass transit system. Although buses cover widely and are cheaper than MRT, I don't know how to use it. I hate taxi. So I hope MRT will develop as soon as possible. When the whole system is completed, it would be the best transportation in Taipei.
Taipei's only one Tibet Restaurant
Small and exotic. The space is total Tibetan: waiters, the cook, pictures, drawings, decoration, music, and books.
One can order one dish by one dish, but I suggest the set they offer: salad, soup, main dish, main course, dessert and drink. Six a set costs only 250 NTD (10% service charge there doesn't require) and makes you satisfied .
There offers mainly Tibetan food, but also Indian and Thai dishes. Many choices for you. Tibetan food is very special and unique:
1) Blood sausage: sausage sliced, salty and you never try before.
2) Tibetan suppe: chicken soup with mashed meat.
3) Spicy fried mutton or beef: big field with large meat and vegetable. Smells and tastes good. Suits especially with Indian bread. Super.
4) Dalai curry: abnormal curry with unusual spicy, has its own taste.
5) Zhei-Ba: made of grains. Tastes healthy and nature, especially good with Tibetan milk tea.
6) Wo-Wo-To: so-called Chinese bread, very flexble.
7) Snow baby: dessert with dragon-eye and grains in.
8) Tibetan milk tea: salty.
