An International And Local Taipei With Jetset Times' Founder, Wendy Hung
There's nothing else that screams the taste of home louder than traditional Taiwanese breakfast. It's the first stop I make whenever I land in the AM. I love taking morning walks to devour the freshest soymilk, buns and Taiwanese omeletes!
鼎泰豐 - Taipei 101
Trips back home in Taipei aren't complete without a stop at Ding Tai Fung, who makes the world's best soup dumplings. My personal favorites are: shrimp fried rice, shrimp shaomai and vegetable dumplings. The service is immaculate while strolling by steamy aquariums where dumplings are being made is always oh-so-fun.
台北君悅大飯店 Grand Hyatt Taipei
Afternoon Tea at Grand Hyatt is such a treat! Live music with an assortment of delicious nibbles are served upon beautiful silverware. This is a great spot to eat and rest your feet after an afternoon of browsing. The giant flower arrangement in the middle of the hotel lobby always takes my breath away!
誠品信義書店 Eslite Bookstore
I'm a bookstore fanatic and this is one of the best in the world! I love the diversity of worldwide selections. I can find anything in French, Japanese, English or Chinese here, it's the perfect bookstore for me! The stationary boutiques inside are gems that only exist in Taiwan.
A must-do whenever I'm back in Asia: get my nails done! It's not just a typical manicure, it's ART! I love getting pampered while my nails are "Gel-ed & Gem-ed!" Cherry does a great job, her work never comes out looking too cheesy or over-the-top. It's the right amount of sparkles to be classy. Her store is also located in one of the hippest areas in Taipei: East side, where lots of great eateries, nightlife and shops are!
