In a region that has suffered many devastating earthquakes and natural disasters, the fact that this temple has survived is nothing short of miraculous, and not for the reason you might think – but more on that later. Built in 1738, the temple was originally intended to serve the locally based settlers that had moved to the area from the province of Fujian.🏯🎐🏮☯️#CedTWNtyNine🇹🇼 #cookietravels #WheninTaiwan #WheninTaipei #TravelTaipei #travel #travelgoals #traveller #wander #wanderer #wanderlust #klooktravels #klook #backpacking #worldtravel #Taiwan #Taipei #travelstories #travelstoriesworld #pinoytraveller #diytravel #diytraveller #TravelTaipei #LikeItFormosa #Longshan #temple #religion #culture
Longshan Temple is one of largest and oldest temples in Taiwan. One of the "Big 3" temples in the historic Wanhua district, the other two temples are Bangka Qingshui Temple (艋舺清水巖祖師廟) and Taipei Tianhou Temple (台北天后宮).🏯🎎🏮🎏 #CedTWNtyNine🇹🇼 #cookietravels #WheninTaiwan #WheninTaipei #TravelTaipei #travel #travelgoals #traveller #wander #wanderer #wanderlust #klooktravels #klook #backpacking #worldtravel #Taiwan #Taipei #travelstories #travelstoriesworld #pinoytraveller #diytravel #diytraveller #TravelTaipei #LikeItFormosa #Longshan #temple #religion #culture #Taosim #Shinto #buddhism
Day 4: Starting the day tour at the legendary Longshan Temple. The most well known temple in Taiwan, the Mengjia Longshan Temple was built in 1738 by settlers from Fujian as a gathering place for Chinese settlers. Located in the old village part of Taipei, Wanhua District, this temple has stood the test of time and lasted through several natural disasters and wars.🏯🏮🎎🎐 #CedTWNtyNine🇹🇼 #cookietravels #WheninTaiwan #WheninTaipei #TravelTaipei #travel #travelgoals #traveller #wander #wanderer #wanderlust #klooktravels #klook #backpacking #worldtravel #Taiwan #Taipei #travelstories #travelstoriesworld #pinoytraveller #diytravel #diytraveller #TravelTaipei #LikeItFormosa

Hello from this cutie milk tea holder!!! 🤗😬☺️ hashtag Happy ThursTEA!!! 👻👻👻
Both Pingxi (平溪) and Shifen (十分) are both towns rich in culture and history and provide a nice glimpse at Taiwan's beautiful natural scenery. Events such as the Sky Lantern Festival draw visitors year round to create a Chinese Lantern (天燈) with a wish written on it to set into the sky.🏮🏞🎏✨ #CedTWNtyNine🇹🇼 #cookietravels #WheninTaiwan #WheninTaipei #TravelTaipei #travel #travelgoals #traveller #wander #wanderer #wanderlust #klooktravels #klook #backpacking #worldtravel #Taiwan #Taipei #travelstories #travelstoriesworld #pinoytraveller #diytravel #diytraveller #TravelTaipei #LikeItFormosa
A small concert hall is located within the Red House complex, and frequently hosts cultural events such as concerts and exhibitions. The square behind the main building is home to Taipei's largest LGBT district and a large number of outdoor bars (with great drinks and service) that welcome all patrons. I love how gender-sensitive they are here. Check out the last pic ❤🏠🏮♀️♂️🏳️‍🌈 #CedTWNtyNine🇹🇼 #cookietravels #WheninTaiwan #WheninTaipei #TravelTaipei #travel #travelgoals #traveller #wander #wanderer #wanderlust #klooktravels #klook #backpacking #worldtravel #Taiwan #Taipei #travelstories #travelstoriesworld #pinoytraveller #diytravel #diytraveller #TravelTaipei #LikeItFormosa
Originally, the complex with built to serve as the first government-operated public-run market, and now is classed and preserved as a municipal heritage site. The Red House building features an octagonal entrance and cross-shaped floor plan where merchants could showcase their goods. Today the market has modernised to become a space for the creative and art industry, including an outdoor Market for Artists and Designers located within the North Square.😍🏠❤🏮🌇 #CedTWNtyNine🇹🇼 #cookietravels #WheninTaiwan #WheninTaipei #TravelTaipei #travel #travelgoals #traveller #wander #wanderer #wanderlust #klooktravels #klook #backpacking #worldtravel #Taiwan #Taipei #travelstories #travelstoriesworld #pinoytraveller #diytravel #diytraveller #TravelTaipei #Ximending #Ximen #LikeItFormosa #sunset #skyviewers #architecture
Built in 1908 by the Japanese, the Red House Western-style building and its surrounding square located at Ximending is home to Taipei's creative and culture industry, hosting exhibitions and performances daily.😍❤🏠🏮 #CedTWNtyNine🇹🇼 #cookietravels #WheninTaiwan #WheninTaipei #TravelTaipei #travel #travelgoals #traveller #wander #wanderer #wanderlust #klooktravels #klook #backpacking #worldtravel #Taiwan #Taipei #travelstories #travelstoriesworld #pinoytraveller #diytravel #diytraveller #TravelTaipei #TheRedHouse #Ximen #Ximending #LikeItFormosa
I've got a dream, she's got a dream
I just want to see the floating lanterns gleam
And with every passing hour
I'm so glad I left my tower
Like all you lovely folks, I've got a dream

A mountainous region at the Pingxi district in northern Taiwan has been designated the only legal and most suitable area where tiandeng can be released. The mountain ranges are said to provide the best natural screen to keep the sky lanterns from straying beyond the area.

There is also a lower risk of fire as Pingxi experiences rain about 200 days a year and its relative humidity is over 75 per cent. A sky lantern can be released any time of the year but its popularity soars during Chinese New Year. 🏮🏞😍☁️💕#CedTWNtyNine🇹🇼 #cookietravels #WheninTaiwan #WheninTaipei #TravelTaipei #travel #travelgoals #traveller #wander #wanderer #wanderlust #klooktravels #klook #backpacking #worldtravel #Taiwan #Taipei #travelstories #travelstoriesworld #pinoytraveller #diytravel #diytraveller #TravelTaipei
Time to release the wishes! Many Taiwanese believe in releasing a lantern personalised with their wishes to begin the new year on a high. #CedTWNtyNine🇹🇼 #cookietravels #WheninTaiwan #WheninTaipei #TravelTaipei #travel #travelgoals #traveller #wander #wanderer #wanderlust #klooktravels #klook #backpacking #worldtravel #Taiwan #Taipei #travelstories #travelstoriesworld #pinoytraveller #diytravel #diytraveller #TravelTaipei

Shifen Waterfall is a scenic waterfall located in Pingxi District, New Taipei City, Taiwan, on the upper reaches of the Keelung River. The falls' total height is 20 metres and 40 metres in width, making it the broadest waterfall in Taiwan. #CedTWNtyNine🇹🇼 #cookietravels #WheninTaiwan #WheninTaipei #TravelTaipei #travel #travelgoals #traveller #wander #wanderer #wanderlust #klooktravels #klook #backpacking #worldtravel #Taiwan #Taipei #travelstories #travelstoriesworld #pinoytraveller #diytravel #diytraveller #TravelTaipei
The Shifen Waterfall is considered as the Niagara Falls of Taiwan. It is located 30 minutes away from Shifen Old Streets by walking along either side of the tracks in the northeast direction. #CedTWNtyNine🇹🇼 #cookietravels #WheninTaiwan #WheninTaipei #TravelTaipei #travel #travelgoals #traveller #wander #wanderer #wanderlust #klooktravels #klook #backpacking #worldtravel #Taiwan #Taipei #travelstories #travelstoriesworld #pinoytraveller #diytravel #diytraveller #TravelTaipei #Shifen #waterfalls #nature #trekking
The Shifen Waterfall (十分大瀑布) is a 40 metre tall waterfall that is widely regarded as the most scenic in all of Taiwan. The train station located down the river from the waterfall area, originally built for transporting coal, was built right alongside the Shifen Old Streets (十分老街), and today stands as a reminder of Taiwan's history and culture. #CedTWNtyNine🇹🇼 #cookietravels #WheninTaiwan #WheninTaipei #TravelTaipei #travel #travelgoals #traveller #wander #wanderer #wanderlust #klooktravels #klook #backpacking #worldtravel #Taiwan #Taipei #travelstories #travelstoriesworld #pinoytraveller #diytravel #diytraveller #TravelTaipei
Mangoes in Taiwan are soooo biiig, sooo smooooth, sooo soooft but still not as sweet as our mangoes in the Philippines. Their mangoes has good texture and taste like gelatin 😂

Shifen Old Street is a bustling hub for those eager to get a glimpse of an old railroad town which still retains the charm of yesteryear. Originally built to transport coal, the Shifen Old Street stop has now become one of the most popular on the Pingxi rail-line. The sky lanterns at Shifen Old Street are of particular note. Once used as a signaling system for those living and working in the railroad industry, visitors today paint their wishes with calligraphy before releasing the lanterns into the sky. 🏮🚈😍❤ #CedTWNtyNine🇹🇼 #cookietravels #WheninTaiwan #WheninTaipei #TravelTaipei #travel #travelgoals #traveller #wander #wanderer #wanderlust #klooktravels #klook #backpacking #worldtravel #Taiwan #Taipei #travelstories #travelstoriesworld #pinoytraveller #diytravel #diytraveller #TravelTaipei #Shifen #ShifenOldShrine #skylantern #fambam #family

Taipei Children's Amusement Park 
位於台灣台北的遊樂園 🎡 🇹🇼 Whenever I ask anyone about my age, they never get to guess it the first time unless they stalk me or ask from close friends. The secret? God being my potter, genes, and that kid inside me. I love making fun of myself (in a good way) and I always try to see the good in people before I hate them entirely. I never autotune on the dark side, mostly on what makes people feel better about themselves. I went to this amusement park in Taipei and I just googled how to go here.  I just love the simpler things, anything fun and chill is fine. To go here, from Red Line 2 Jiantan station (劍潭), exit the station towards Shilin Night Market (士林夜市) and walk left towards the bus station (busses heading north). Take the shuttle bus or route 41 to the park. Taipei Children’s Amusement Park, built by the Taipei City Government, stands on area of about 5 hectares. The park is decked out with rides, a free playground, and a children’s theatre operated by the IF Kids Theatre Company, where an exciting program of skits and shows is staged during weekends and holidays.  The amusement park is a family theme park in the Taipei metropolitan area, with 13 rides, including the brand new Ferris Wheel, Bumper Cars, Ocean Carousel (musical carriage), Dancing Fly (dragon boat), Wave Swinger, Monorail and Spinning Tea Cups, Roller Coaster, Crazy Bus, Drop Tower, Pirate Ship, Telecombat and Spinning Chairs.  Try to go here and don’t miss the icecream corner at the third floor near the entrance to the ferris wheel.  Surely, you’ll find some bits of fun when get here. You can use your Easycard for all the rides.

In 1890, gold dust was firstly discovered in Keelung River, and it became the origin of gold mining industry in Jiufen-Jinguashi area. Nevertheless, not until the latest mining technology and machinery were implemented during Japanese Ruled Period was the large-scale excavation started, which had been lasting for almost half of a century (1896-1945), giving Jiufen-Jinguashi area its glory age and the name of “Gold Capital in Asia” at that period of time. As the time goes by, the mining industry gradually declining; however, its industrial relics was designated as one of the potential world heritage sites in Taiwan by the Ministry of Culture, this shows the value and significance of the area.💲⛏⛰🏯🎏🏮 #CedTWNtyNine🇹🇼 #cookietravels #WheninTaiwan #WheninTaipei #TravelTaipei #travel #travelgoals #traveller #wander #wanderer #wanderlust #klooktravels #klook #backpacking #worldtravel #Taiwan #Taipei #travelstories #travelstoriesworld #pinoytraveller #diytravel #diytraveller #TravelTaipei #jiufenoldstreet

#whenintaipei
Jiufen is a mountain town in northeastern Taiwan, east of Taipei. It's known for the narrow alleyways of its old town, packed with teahouses, street-food shacks and souvenir shops. Near central Old Street is the Shengping Theater, established in the 1900s and since restored. Close by, the Gold Mine Museum traces the town's history as a mining hub during the Japanese-era gold rush.⛰🏯🏮🎏🎎 #CedTWNtyNine🇹🇼 #cookietravels #WheninTaiwan #WheninTaipei #TravelTaipei #travel #travelgoals #traveller #wander #wanderer #wanderlust #klooktravels #klook #backpacking #worldtravel #Taiwan #Taipei #travelstories #travelstoriesworld #pinoytraveller #diytravel #diytraveller #TravelTaipei
Juifen Old Street was rumored to be the inspiration of the famous anime "Spirited Away" because of its resemblance to the scenic shots. However, director Hayao Miyazaki denied the rumors. It's as if we're transported to the anime world while walking the narrow hallways. What an awesome experience!🏯🏮🎎🎏 #CedTWNtyNine🇹🇼 #cookietravels #WheninTaiwan #WheninTaipei #TravelTaipei #travel #travelgoals #traveller #wander #wanderer #wanderlust #klooktravels #klook #backpacking #worldtravel #Taiwan #Taipei #travelstories #travelstoriesworld #pinoytraveller #diytravel #diytraveller #TravelTaipei #Jiufen #oldstreet #SpiritedAway #studioghibli

After the World War II, gold mining activities in the town Gold Town of Jiufe  declined, and the town today exists mainly as a tourist destination remembering and celebrating Taiwanese history and culture.#CedTWNtyNine🇹🇼 #cookietravels #WheninTaiwan #WheninTaipei #TravelTaipei #travel #travelgoals #traveller #wander #wanderer #wanderlust #klooktravels #klook #backpacking #worldtravel #Taiwan #Taipei #travelstories #travelstoriesworld #pinoytraveller #diytravel #diytraveller #TravelTaipei #Jiufen #jiufenoldstreet
Elephant Mountain. 🧗‍♂️ 🇹🇼 For the best view of Taipei City, make a hike to the top of Elephant Mountain! Also known as the Nangang District Hiking Trail and Xiangshan (象山), the hiking trail is located close to the Xinyi Shopping District and Taipei 101. It is also close to the Taipei Metro Xiangshan Station. It is 183 m high and has a hiking trail about 1.5 km long. The best time to hike the mountain is during late afternoon, this way you can catch the sunset as well as a daytime view and stunning nighttime view of the city, however the trail can get relatively crowded during the weekend. The hike takes a total of around 15-20 minutes to the top, and includes lots of stairs! Remember to take a left at the fork in the path. There is a nice veranda-like area that’s covered with wooden enclosures. Air is best in this part. But of course nothing beats the peak (shown in this picture with the famous rock). It was a relatively quick trail but probably the steepest I’ve been to. Try to bring along at least a liter of water I guess to be replenished as you prepare to really perspire tremendously.  As you see here, I may be smiling quite a bit. My smile meant it was my turn after a very long line of people trying their luck to have the best shot here possible. Be friendly, as people around will help take good pictures. And I smile, because, I can. Haha

Claw Machines in Taipei. 🤷🏻‍♂️ 🇹🇼 Though I was rooting for a Luffy, this claw machine allowed me to own my Dracule Mihawk and Jinbe miniature (characters from OnePiece). For a minimum of TW$10, you get to have a chance to own mostly soft toys, miniature collectibles, a phone accessory, electronic gadgets and fashion accessories using the many claw machines spread within and outside of Taipei.  By inserting the coin, customers manually lower a metal claw into a pile of prizes using a controller.  According to studies, there is one claw crane (a total of 8,000 claw machine arcades) for every two convenience stores in Taiwan, with the number more than doubling last year to become the fourth largest tax income source in the entertainment industry. The toy claw evolved from "digger" machines in 1930s America. The early versions were purely mechanical in design and picked up candy.  A more sophisticated electric version quickly spread to Asia in the late 1970s and the last few years have seen a surge in popularity in Taiwan and South Korea.  With salaries failing to keep up with the cost of living in Taiwan, players see the machines as inexpensive entertainment while operators consider them an effective investment. @cabinzeroph @cabinzero .

Taipei 101 at dark. 🇹🇼 I had to wait beyond 6:04pm (sunset) just to have this shot. They say when in darkness and you bring light, you’ll find the beauty that is hidden. This is what you’ll see on the streets if Xinyi District after dark when Taipei 101 has been lit. If you think you have already seen the beauty that is Taipei 101, this spot you shouldn’t miss. Taipei 101 is the most famous landmark supertall (508m.) skyscraper in Xinyi District, Taipei, Taiwan. The building was officially classified as the world's tallest from its opening in 2004 until the 2010 completion of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. For those who are wondering where to find this perfect spot, you may go here: Takemura Izakaya, No. 2號, Alley 1, Lane 253, Songren Road, Xinyi District, Taipei City, Taiwan 110. Thanks to @chadnchady for the exact adress. .
