Taipei Day 1 - Drupal Tour 2016

By Eduardo García ● CTO | April 30th, 2016

Starting in a new city never is easy, Taipei is not perfect, but works well, even that I got lost for a moment after took a bus I could fix my issue relatively quick.

This weekend is a long weekend due the labor day on Monday; I was alert about I will find all really crowded but not really.

I could split the sightseeing I did yesterday in three categories.

In the religious category, I visited three temples yesterday.

Among of those temples, the most interesting was the Longshan Temple and wasn’t about the temple, was about people, Becuase inside were about half thousand people, chanting song and praying to their goods, was a nice experience.

About cultural section I visited, the National Palace Museum; To be honest, I didn’t really enjoy this place, maybe too much art, pottery, and calligraphy and I don’t have the culture or knowledge to understand that.

Regards national symbols, I went out to Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, this memorial honor the father of their country; I know it’s delicate subject saying Taiwan is a country, but looks like a country and smell like a country. In general a big plaza and a nice monument and they a changing guard show.
