They say Taipei is a city mixed Chinese style and Japanese style. The food is delicious and cheap. The most precious antiques throughout China get together in Taipei Palace Museum.
A May morning I flied to Taipei. The first stop is Taipei National Palace Museum. The word “palace” is because every antique belongs to Beijing Palace “the Forbidden City”. iN 1930′ s when Japan invaded China the Republic of China government selected and moved the most precious antiques to Southwest China and finally Taiwan island.
Every exhibit is worth the title “National Treasure”. So my 99% of my trip is for this museum.
I found an interesting massage. An old woman waved her kitchen knife to “cut” this man’s back. She said this is a kind of massage.
The buildings in the street are like 1980′ s style. These buildings are in the very center of Taipei, nearby Taipei Railway Station.
Look the food. This is called Baozi. There is a long queue outside the shop.
Taipei Railway Station in my opinion is better than palace museum.
As a person from mainland, I have a mixed feelings about Taiwan, a rebellious province of China. On the one hand we are taught Taiwan is a beautiful province with many tourism spots and friendly people. On the other hand there is a long time citizens from each side can’t travel to the other side so Taiwan is covered with secret mask.
