This was my first time in Taiwan and so much of it reminded me of parts of Japan. We spent some time in the city and in the countryside and all of it was remarkable. Our favorite thing we did in and around Taipei were seeing Shifen Waterfall, releasing our family lantern in Shifen Old Town, shopping at Taipei 101, visiting the LDS Temple, and walking the grounds in Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Park. Oh, and one can't visit Taipei without experiencing the world renowned Mango Snowflake Ice. It was out of this world delicous.
