Danshui's Fu You Temple
One of the many temples in Taipei. Even for non-believers, it's ok that you go in and take a look at the temple.
This temple is located along Danshui Old Street.
Danshui can be reached via MRT. Alight at Danshui Station.
Despite the slightly dodgy sounding name, this place is really cool. Like most pubs in Taipei it won't going until 9 pm. They play mostly alt rock and the DJ has a selection of what would seem to be over 4000 cds.
Good mix of locals and friendly expats. Quite a few vagrant English teacher types.
Good food too casual - grungy
City Buses around Taipei
Taipei has a well connected and comfortable bus system. It helps if you know a bit of Chinese because the guides and signs can be slightly intimidating for foreigners.
If in doubt, try asking the locals for help.
You can also use the easycard for travel on the buses.
Some buses require you to pay when you board, others require you to pay when you alight. Some requires you to top up cash when you tap the easycard. I'm not sure what's the rationale, but hell... just follow the driver's instructions.
Inside the bus, there is a electronic signboard that states the current and next location. Very useful for tourists.
It worldwide famous American food restaurant. Needless to say, it's quite famous here in Taiwan. It's good for travellers who seek American taste in a island far from the US. I like their Friday's burger. So giant and so nice to eat.
