A few weeks back I travelled to Taipei and spent some days exploring the city as well as venturing to Jiufen, located just a few hours away from Taipei.

We arrived on a Friday afternoon and the first impact Taipei had on me was the architecture. The city is full of old, derelict looking buildings that gives Taipei it’s distinctive feel and atmosphere.

We came to a quiet neighbourhood to check out a dumpling restaurant in the area and yes you have my word, their dumplings was delish.  After lunch, we strolled around the surrounding streets,checking out the many independent shops, cafes’ and restaurants.

Jiufen

We made a quick trip to Jiufen, famous for the inspiration behind the Studio Ghibli film Spirited Away. This place had such a dreamy atmosphere and was definitely the highlight of our trip.
