Taipei Shih Off The Beaten Path

  • What to buy for your friends & relative?

    During my working visit to Taipei, my colleagues brought me to this particular shop at No 73, Section 2, Chang-an East Road. Not a lover for mooncakes and pineapple cakes, I only buy a few to bring back home. My friend also bought me a box of Nouget. Upon reaching back to Singapore, I regreted not buying more of the cakes.

    Most people who go to Dihua St. check out Xiahai Temple, walk up maybe as far Minsheng Rd. and then complain that there's nothing to it. It is true that Dihua St. is no where near as appealing as, say, Lugang's Old Market Steet, but there is still a lot to see here.

  • Taipei Folk Arts Museum

    This small museum is little visited, but is the most interesting in Taiwan after the Palace Museum. Its collection is small but fascinating, but the main attraction is the building itself, one of Taiwan's best-preserved Japanese-era buildings. The setting in the hilly suburbs of Beitou is also a nice change from downtown Taipei.The Folk Art Museum...
