Taiwan trip 2017 – in pictures!

One place I can say I travel often is Taiwan - after all, my uncle, aunt, cousins and grandmother all live there!

This year, we had a gathering with all my mum's siblings. Since they all live in different countries, it's a rare treat to have them all together in one place.

Let's have a look at some of the things we saw this year in Kaohsiung!

The new great Buddha at Fo Guan Shang - last year we entirely missed the new part. It's less like a monastery than the rest, more like a theme park, but that Buddha is undeniably impressive.

More from Fo Guan Shang, always eccentric!

 

If it's Taiwan, it's got to be Din Tai Fung!

And dim sum. Got to have dim sum.

I have strong memories of this place form when I was a child

Fancy decor - but rude service!

The view from my hotel room

The room itself was fancy. When I arrived, I had remarkably tasty belly pork instant noodles and watched Adventure Time in Chinese, haha
