We were from Spain, we took a Taiwan family trip at children’s summer vacation. We chose the Taipei private tour to travel around downtown Taipei.
We visited the Dadaocheng and Manka－the historic district of Taipei city. We tried many special and tasty drink like herb juice and almond tea. Both these two drinks are good to drink in the summer－make you feel cool in the humid weather.
“What a high building over there?” My boy pointed Taipei 101 and asked our driver guide. “That is the Taipei 101, used to be the highest building in the world, and it was the world’s first building over 500 meters high” our guide answered. “In order to build this great skyscraper, our government even modified the aircraft channel!” What a big plan! No wonder Taipei 101 is the pride of Taiwan.
“Look! The traffic light’s little green man is running! Running little green man was invented by Taiwan, we even built a monument to commemorate little green man.” That’s so interesting. Taiwan really created many cute and useful things!
Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall was erected in memory Chiang Kai-shek, former President of the Republic of China. This great building combines many different forms of architecture. Now it’s a famous attraction of Taipei. During the time we waiting for the show of guard handover, our guide told us that Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall has validated the process of Taiwan’s democratization.
Freedom Square, the huge square in front of Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall played an important role during the democratization. People gathered in this square to fight for civil rights and promoted Taiwan to a democratic country. Shaped today’s Taiwan. We knew that was a hard road, but Taiwan did a good job!
