Taiwan Day 10 - Ximending

24 Nov - As we make our way back to Taipei via the local train, we pass by the same Taichung Station where we took the same route 2 years ago. This time, the old station has been closed and the new station is just opened. Gone are the long queue of people in front of the ticket counter buying tickets, which is now being replaced with contact-less card.

New Taichung Station

By the time we finished the 3 hours journey from Taichung to Taipei, we are left with half a day to explore the city before we catch our flight home around noon the next day. With no time to lose, we checked into our hotel Marriott Courtyard Taipei located just next to Nangang Station.

We immediately hit the shopping district Ximending and visited the One Piece shop and brought some souvenir home. =)
