We had a one day stop in Taipei. We arrived at night and would leave for the Philippines the next day at 8pm.

Having a tight time constraint turned out to be a good thing. We have friends living in Taipei, Dani Shih and his wife Su, and they made this whole stopover awesome. And here are some of the tours they took us on:

Taipei City Council (Taipei 101)

There is nothing unusual here except Taipei 101, the tallest building in Taipei. Even the building is mediocre, especially during the day. But when you are a tourist, I think you should see the city landmark.

Sun Yat-Sen Memorial - The founding priest of China, 15 minutes walk from Taipei City Hall. Sun Yat Sen has been called the founding father of the Republic of China, playing an instrumental role in the revolution to overthrow the Qing dynasty and end feudalism in China. He is perhaps the only Chinese who is universally respected by all Chinese: Chinese in China, ethnic Chinese in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, overseas Chinese and even the Chinese communist government.

He was the only Chinese who had many memorials in various cities in China, Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan.

Before you travel: you didn't forget about travel insurance, right?

If you're so anxious that you forgot to take out travel insurance , don't worry, there's still time! Travel insurance , although not mandatory for entry into American soil, can be your best friend. This is because any medical care or emergency, no matter how simple it may be, has very high costs in the land of Uncle Sam. Insurance with good coverage prevents a huge headache (not to mention in your pocket) and also gives you that hand in case your suitcase being lost, for example. We suggest that you take out insurance that covers any type of incident on the spot! We at Ideias na Mala recommend and do not travel without insurance from Seguros Promo , a Brazilian company that works as an insurance comparator, seeking the best cost-benefits on the market without giving up excellent coverage!

Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Chiang was a member of the same party, Nationalist or Kuomintang, with Sun Yat Sen and later became the head of the party. Chiang and Sun were brothers-in-law, married to the same sisters. Unlike Sun Yat Sen and his wife who managed to maintain a good relationship with the Chinese Communists, the Nationalist Party under Chiang engaged in a civil war with the Communists who defeated him. He fled to Taiwan, still operated his party and ran mainland China from there until Mao Zedong took over.

Chiang Kai-Shek was impressive, perhaps due to his status in Taiwan, which under his reign became one of the four Asian tigers between Hong Kong, Singapore and South Korea.

Zhongshan District - Religion and Art

Out of curiosity about the temple, where Master Bud Kung, from the Pure Land, first entered his monastic life. I learned about Master Chin Kung and Pure Earth Buddhism just a few weeks earlier while I was traveling in Australia. I stayed at my high school teacher's house, a good friend of my mother's, in Melbourne. Every day I interacted with pious Vietnamese Buddhists from the Pure Land who talked about Buddhism in every conversation.
