Hi everyone,

Suddenly, I don't know how to start this last blog post about #Taiwan trip. The feeling is like when I was in Taipei on my 4th day knowing that this was my last day in Taipei. It's getting emotional.

My flight back to Singapore was at 8pm so I had plenty of time to walk around the streets and to look for some souvenirs for friends and family. My hotel is located right at Ximending, one of the most popular shopping districts for young people. Ximending is the source of Taiwan's fashion, subculture and Japanese culture. It's like "Shibuya of Taiwan"

The streets at 12pm didn't seem to be very crowded and I had an entire street for myself for photo taking. 

Wearing the "Catch me if you can" cut-out T-shirt, jeans, sneakers and a denim jacket just in case I would be cold on the airplane later at night.

As you can see from the photos, most street shoppers are youths and the way they dress up is pretty similar to Japanese style.

Walking at the middle of Ximending street with my favorite frog hat that I bought for my nephew Miu the other day. It matches my sunglasses, don't you think?

Too much of walking and shopping around under the crazy hot sun worn me out, this was the last thing I wanted to do before leaving Taipei. 

Sitting in an air-con restaurant with a cool drink and looking over the vibrant streets, I knew my trip was complete! 

Taipei had been good to me from the moment I stepped into the city til the minute I left: the food, the scenery, the people (I love Taiwanese people already, why are they so friendly and helpful?), the culture, the vibrant city and the crazy shopping experience and many more. 

The city bid its farewell with this amazing picturesque view when I was on the way to airport, what should I say?

Good bye Taiwan! Til next time! 

I don't know how soon I will be back but I know I definitely will. Thank you for everything! I enjoyed so much my 4 days while I was there. Also, thank you Streetdirectory for filling up my dream-traveling-destination-list.

Thank you so much everyone for following me in my #travelingwithCrystal journey on Instagram & Facebook. It was so fun to share my traveling experience with you guys. I hope you enjoyed the blog entries about my Taiwan adventure.
