I really enjoyed
The people are busy and still take the time to be courteous and friendly. The food is great and has its own spin on "traditional" Chinese food, which makes sense. I also love the cheap transportation. You can take the metro pretty much anywhere for next to nothing.
Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall - Great way to learn about and get a better feeling for
Night Market (Snake Alley) - Really a must see...my opinion. Very random items for sale from kids toys to "Natural" healing medicines for sexually transmitted Diseases! Beware! Not for the squeamish! They don't call it snake Alley for nothing! You can drink snakes blood! Sounds adventurous, but it was pretty morbid in person. I guess this "Adventurous" traveler has his limits.
Overall, I would recommend
Also...Good local beer, but I suggest to stay away from the Beetlenut!
