We took the cable car all the way to the last stop. (There are 3) You'll see most of Taipei from up there. And along the way, you'll pass by a lot of tea plantations. It's a beautiful and peaceful area. Very scenic. Lots of tea houses and cafes. A great place for some afternoon tea. :)
Cat's Got Nothing To Do Cafe -- Honey Citrus Tea, hot chocolate, and waffles.
Mao Kong Cafe.
The interior was just adorable!
Hawaiian fruit tea and Longgan tea -- must try! And their cheesecakes are to die for!
Xi Men Ting Red Theatre
If you're like me, and you like whimsical, artistic, handmade, one-of-a-kind stuff, then this is the place to be. Stalls manned by the makers and artists themselves line the street outside of the theatre. You can find hand-painted t-shirts, handmade bracelets, earrings, purses, and all kinds of little trinkets. Inside the theatre are more shops, again by independent artists. I love the creative atmosphere of the place! Lots of eye candy to draw inspiration from!
Misua at Ay-Chung's.
You fall in line, pay, grab your bowl, and eat -- standing up on the sidewalk. Don't worry about the long queue. You'll get to the counter faster than you can say Misua. I've never seen any restaurant serve this fast! Definitely worth a try :)
