This is not a real grocery store but a "fake"one set in the tourist strreet. There are less and less grocery store in cities, but still can find some around country sides. In the picture this fake store put many Tatung staues on the wall, if you think it's no big deal, you are totally wrong. It cost a lot and it's well-known in Taiwan. Since 1918 Tatung company produced home appliance and created this logo statue, everyone marked a number which symbolized the year. Ex. 86 means it is made in 1911+86= 1997. Some collectors started to collected the 1970s statues to 1990s, so it's getting popuar and rare. This shop owns all the years of statues as you've seen in this picture, just sell some statues, you can travel around some countries.

There is now a running high speed rail in Taiwan. This rail goes from north to south on the west hitting all the major cities. From Kaohsiung to Taipei is only about 2 hours by this train.
The disadvantage is you don't get to see much, but if time is important, its useful!
