The place ambiance was nice and you can take a bunch of photos while waiting for your food or even after getting full. A bit pricey menu - the only downside. If you're planning to go, I would suggest that you go after lunch or before evening because Shilin Night Market is only a few blocks away. You shouldn't miss it for anything!

It was a fun tour. It's supposed to be a join-in tour but other travellers who booked it did not make it so it seemed like a private tour for me. I am the only participant so I had all the tour guide's attention and I have the freedom the choose or stay at the food stalls as long/short as I want. York is a great guide. We have the same pace in walking. He brought me to stalls which are usually flocked with tourist but when we were there, there were little to no lines. I enjoyed my Shilin Night Market. The perfect way to end my Taiwan trip!

Went to Miramar via a Free bus from The Shilin Night Market. Exchanging the tickets was hassle-free and the waiting line was short but if you want to try the transparent gondola, you have to wait a bit longer as they were limited. From the top, you can see Taipei 101 and the other shopping malls in the area.

It was a great experience! The place is huge. But it was nice to learn about the history and culture of Taiwan. Had to get the tickets at Shung Ye Museum which is a short walk the National Palace Museum. Both museum are easily accessible by public bus. And there's also a bus on the basement going to Shilin Night Market :)
