Here we are! GGB in Taiwan, checking out the sites, doing street beers, and meeting the locals!
Mr BC went running, followed by being an early alarm clock for the sleeping GGB boys. Woke, smashed coffee, copious amounts of toast got bodied, and we hit the streets of Taipei.
To put it quite simply…it’s like a mini Tokyo. Taipei has the awesome aspects of Tokyo (shopping streets that feel like a mini Shinjuku / blinding flashing lights on crossings that’s reminiscent of Shibuya / street beers ;)) - but Taipei also has the lovely, nitty gritty, interesting aroma-ry, hot and sweaty feel that Thailand has (mainly the night markets).
We experienced it all!
Day 1 - walked around the streets. Checked out the local spots (chiang kai shek - memorial). Hit up Taipei 101 for some beer towers and shots from a nice hi-so bar.
Day 2 - Elephant Mountain (Xiàngshān), followed by some siccckkk beef noodles and again, out to Taipei 101 for drinking
Day 3 - markets upon markets.
Amazing place. 3 days is sufficient! Higly recommend. GGB nailed it! Needs a bit more smash though…only saw one Mario and one cheeky Ness walking around. Let’s go again boys?
