Last Day in Taipei

The Hectic Taipei Tour:

We first visited Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall.

8:30 in the morning, everyone was still sleepy. (It's the day following the wedding reception)

It was actually a nice day,

...and quite windy.

The next stop was Longshan Temple.

At this time, there were already a lot of visitors.

There are many different things to see in this place.

Then we went to The National Revolutionary Martyrs' Shrine.

Jeff also guards in front of the soldier.

The buildings on this compound are beautifullyl crafted.

And it's a very sacred place.

The changing of the guards occurs every hour.

... and is quite an elaborate process, worth to see it!

We moved to Tamsui area, and had lunch there.

It's always a popular area.

The final place we visited was Fort Santo Domingo

It's a nice area to walk around.

There was a small museum section inside the building.

Our last Taiwanese dinner was at Din Tai Fung.

We all enjoyed their famous Xiaolongbao (small steamed dumplings)!

Even though we need to wake up early in the morning to catch the flight, Fiona went out with her friends for the last fun before leaving Taiwan.

So the rest of us (Fiona's parents, Paynes, Jeff & Shanon, and Taddy) had a drink together at home.

:::Good Bye Taiwan:::
