In Korea, it was winter. It was really cold and my hands were frozen. During this period, I traveled to Taiwan. I heard that Taiwan is hotter and humid than Korea. So I did not know how much heat it was. At the airport in Korea, I was wearing a coat because it was cold. However, I had to take off the coat because I arrived in Taiwan for about 2 hours. It was really hot. And this was the summer day opposite to Korea.
It was the first day. It was so hot that I changed from winter clothes to summer clothes. The clothes of the people around him were also wearing short-sleeved T-shirts and light T-shirts. Because it was summer weather, the first food we ate was shaved ice with mango. The taste was sweet and cool and refreshing. It is a taste that I want to recommend. Next is dim sum like a dumpling. Have you ever eaten dim sum? I would have eaten a common dumpling. The taste of the traditional dumplings is slightly different and the ingredients are slightly different. It is a bit tougher than dumplings and contains various ingredients and spices.
On the second day, I visited Taipei 101 Building. Literally 101number represents the number of layers. In other words, it is the 101st floor. When I went, the weather was not good and I could not go to the Sky Lounge because there was a lot of fog. You can see between the 98 and 96 floors, where there is a huge ball to prepare for an earthquake. I feel horrible when I see the ball. However, this ball is very important because it is a branch that plays a central role in the building.
When I come next time, I want to go to the Sky Lounge and see the scenery.
I went to the night market at night. In Korea, the night market culture has not been developed so much, and it was more interesting. Among the things I have eaten is fried chicken wing with fried rice. It is really addictive taste. There are many other but also unforgettable foods in Korea.
Do you know the animation called Sen and Chihiro? The background of the animation came from Jiu Fu of Taiwan. The style of the place was just like a fairy tale scene. I was in the same scenery as the animation and it was really fun. At the end of this long journey I was really looking forward to new pleasures. It is a pleasure of traveling. If you are going to Taiwan, I would like to see you a lot.

It was an extremely cold winter in Korea. Winters in Korea can be really harsh and this winter was no different. It was hard to endure and my body could feel the brittle coldness of this winter. To try and escape the freezing weather, I decided to travel to Taiwan. I heard that Taiwan was hotter and more humid than Korea. However, I did not realize how much the temperatures varied.. When I arrived at the airport in Korea I was wearing a coat because it was so cold. When I arrived in Taiwan, I had to take off my coat because it was really hot. This summer day was totally opposite to the winter day in Korea.
On the first day of arrival, it was so hot that I had to change from winter clothes to summer clothes. People around me were also wearing short-sleeved T-shirts, light T-shirts and shorts. The first dish I ate was a sundae of shaved ice with mangoes. It tasted sweet, cool and refreshing. This sundae was tasty and was a perfect snack for a summer day. The next dish I tried was dim sum. Dim sum is a steamed dumpling-like Chinese cuisine. Have you ever eaten dim sum? I have only ever eaten Korean dumplings. The taste of Korean dumplings and dim sum slightly differs Even though there are only slight differences in the ingredientsthe tastes are uniquely different. The outer dough of dim sum is a bit tougher than the common dumplings of Korea. The combination of the ingredients and added spices also adds to the distinguishing taste of dim sum.
On the second day, I visited Taipei 101 Building. I found out, the number 101 literally represents the number of floors. On this day, the weather was very foggy so I could not go to the Sky Lounge. There is a huge ball between the 96th and 98th floors. This huge ball helps to resist the effects of an earthquake. I felt uneasy and horrible at the sight of the huge ball. However, this ball is very important because it is a structural pendulum that plays a central role in the safety of the building.
On my next visit to Taipei, I would love to visit the Sky Lounge and take in the scenic views.
At night, I visited the a night market. Comparably, the night market culture in Korea has not been developed as much as Taiwan’s night market culture. The night market in Taipei was more elaborate and interesting. The market provides various choices of food. I enjoyed fried chicken wings with fried rice; a taste that was really addictive. There were so many other unforgettable food choices that grant distinction to the Taipei night markets as well.
Have you heard of the Japanese animation called Sen and Chihiro, or Spirited Away? The background of the animation came from Jiu Fu of Taiwan. The sensational scenery of Taiwan was a place just like the wonderful fairy tale. Experiencing the same scenery as the animation was really enjoyable and fun. At the end of this long journey I came to appreciate the variations between these two different countries and now I look forward to visiting and experiencing new pleasures. Traveling is a pleasurable and learning experience. Think about traveling to Taiwan for some ultimate experiences. Hope to see you in Taiwan.< Copyright © The Gachon Herald All rights reserved >
