I've totally slept on the vastness of Taipei. I said "I don't think they'll be much to see in a few hours"... WRONG. My friend and I have already planned our sights for a return... in 2020 most likely. Best way to see this City in one day? Purchase a metro day pass and have a blast getting lost. This is what we did when we missed the Hop on Hop Off bus. That was our best 'missed connection' of the trip. Enjoy!
Yes, this is an inflatable tank (see below) with a man standing in front of it. Unfortunately, the plaque had no English translation to explain the purpose of this display. Therefore, I have my own personal idea of what this represents but not factual support for it.
Amazing photo gallery in the subway (next few photos)
The main square in the Financial District.
I'm telling you, we were so bummed we only had a few hours on this layover. Next time, it will be a few DAYS. :)
