It's my second trip to Taiwan. First trip was last year, before the Chinese New Year. In that trip, I only toured around New Taipei city. I stayed with a close friend, so my accoms & some of my meals were taken care of. Friend had work during the day, but she pointed me to some sights and I looked around during the day.

I saw the usual sights - Taipei 101, Longshan Temple (a big old temple), night market near it, Chiang Kai Shek & Sun Yat Sen memorials, the botanical garden, etc. It was interesting to see & observe the Taiwanese people. They are very disciplined and organized. City is very clean. MRT has several lines and public transport systems are very good. I find it similar to Singapore in that way, but not as pricey.

Taiwanese are disciplined and they queue everywhere. Not like the mainlanders who don't queue, or spit, pee & poop anywhere. Maybe it's bcos Taiwan was colonized by Japan for 50 yrs or so (before WW2). After WW2, Japan surrendered, and their forces left Taiwan and
PI. I read some of these info when I toured the CKS & SYS memorials last year. I could've linked to wikipedia for more details, but am on fone & can't be assed. Heh...
