A slow relaxing day

Today we decide to start out late and do some shopping around the Taipei Main Station Area.
We wanted to go to Shoe Street and NW area of Taipei Main Railway station (not the MRT). We went to the Shoe Street, Chongjin Market and ladies accessories stores.
Shoe Street is Yuanling Street and at the entrance you will see two large shoes and on the corner is a TGI Friday’s restaurant.
You will see this busy street "Shoe Street" called Yuanling St. Turn right into that street and about midway through you'll see a very narrow, busy-looking pedestrian-only lane to your right---that's Chengjong Market.
At the Taipei Main station take exit 1 at the very end of the underground shopping mall and head down Chongqing S. Rd till you see Yuanling Street which will be on your right hand side.
If you go out exit 6 of Taipei Main station you will be at Chongqing N. Rd.which is the area of the station that has the Taipei Main Railway underground shopping mall and the area that sells Ladies handbags and accessories. This area is NW of Taipei Railway Station starting just north of Civic Blvd. Elevated Expressway.
We did lots of shopping today.
We had lunch at the TGI Fridays which was delicious before heading over the NW area of the station for shopping.
After some shopping we decided to head back to the hotel and drop off our purchases before going back to the Taipei 101 for dinner at the food court again and to get some night time shots of the Taipei 101.
Today was a very slow and relaxing day.
