My husband & I were so excited to visit Taipei for the first time, we definitely were planning on going nuts with our camera & take tons of photos. Here are some of the best highlights of our photo album.
Yes, graffiti is everywhere. It’s not really a shocking thing in most countries, but we were still excited to see street art throughout the city. This type of art really amazes us, & these big murals are so cool.
Like I’ve mentioned before, my female friend who got married is from Taipei. She was showing our big group of friends around town, & as we were walking to the subway station, we passed by this small shop selling funny t-shirts. All of us thought these two shirts in particular was very fitting for the occasion. The first shirt on the left says “My husband is the greatest”. The second shirt on the right says “My wife is never wrong”. Our group thought it would be funny to buy these shirts for our friends who were getting married that weekend, so they could wear them on their wedding day. Alas, they begged us not to get them, so we didn’t end up buying them. It would have been a funny story if we did get those shirts!
It was very interesting to see new/modern buildings mixed in with the older/traditional buildings. The city itself is quite clean & orderly, however, the older buildings feel a little run-down & worn-out. This is quite a dramatic contrast against the vibrant background of the bustling cityscape.
