Last November, we, along with our bestfriends (aka boyfriends), traveled to the land of xiao long bao (we made that up)–thanks to an impulsive promo fare booking done almost a year ago.
In 5 days and 5 nights, we were able to (in no particular order) visit the Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall, shop at Ximending, try the original Din Tai Fung in Xinyi, climb Elephant Mountain, feed our artsy souls at Huashan1914 Creative Park, explore Northern Taiwan, visit a national park, walk around Beitou and eat our hearts out at the Shilin Night Market. All these in under P20,000, including airfare, visa application fees, taxes, etc.
