Taipei is a great place which is very modern but also full of traditions. The Taipei 101 is the 8th largest building in the world and has an amazing luxury mall at the bottom of it. While I was there I went to the Hello Kitty Restaurant it was out of this world with all things Hello Kitty! It was really fun to have tea time at the restaurant. There is a lot of street art around Taipei and some of the coolest examples where at Huashan 1914 Creative Park. This is a park which has traditional and trendy new restaurants, amazing gourmet coffee (a best kept secret that Taipei has amazing coffee houses), and also pop-up shops for artists and creatives of all kinds. The more traditional side of Taipei is all their night markets, street food, hot springs and tea time all which where a great experience.
