[Report] Beautiful Taipei journey with a Local Guide


Hi, Local Guides!

Few days ago, we went to Taipei, Taiwan for sightseeing and to see a wonderful Local Guide.

This time I want to introduce the report of our journey. 



Meet a Local Guide


We met Local Guide, Samuel Lin (@Mubiesam). I met him during the summit 2017 and we talked about each countries. That time I especially interested about there are many vegetarian shops in Taiwan, because my wife (@Christine_T) is pescetarian. So we decided to go to Taiwan this year.

He showed us to his recommended shops. Those are delicious and unique! If we have read only generally guide books before the journey, we would not have been to such wonderful places.


And we talked about LocalGuides, problems of each countrirs, improvement ideas and a lot of things. Those were very interesting and excited time.



Shops and Cafes

We went to some vegetarian shops and cafes. Some of them are recommendation places from Local Guides. Thank you @Shirley @YasumiKikuchi @StephenAbraham @Sherry_Tsai_Taipei !

R9 Café



Smoothie House



3 Idiots Toast & Curry



Melange Café



Veggie Grill







Night Market

We visited to two Night Markets, Shilin Night Market (士林觀光夜市) and Raohe Night Market (饒河夜市)

Shilin is very kind for Japanese people. We saw a lot of Japanese language guides in there. Raohe is smaller than Shilin. But I felt more beauty than Shilin. Anyways both are wonderful!!!





Of course I tried to eat Stinky tofu! (This is a order from @StephenAbraham)

My first Stinky Tofu (Google Photo Video)




And I got a Big Rainbow Cotton Candy!!! One of my dream came true!!!!:)



My best food in Taiwan was Pepper pie (胡椒餅). When you go to Taiwan, you should definetely eat it if you can eat meat.  



If you are vegetarian, I recommend Tapioca milk tea. I thought it is not drink, almost food:) 





Landscapes are also beautiful and colorful. In addition, city functions are very advanced. 





Taipei, Taiwan is beautiful and delicious city. People are very kind and smart. We'll go to Taiwan again. And if you have at least one Local Guide friend in Taiwan, definitely your journey will be more wonderful! 

Thank you Samuel again. See you again in Taiwan or Japan ;-)

Let's go to Taiwan with local Guides!!!!!
