【Lungshan Temple】

Longshan Temple is a famous old temple in Taiwan. It is for worshiping Guanshiyin 

Budda and other divine spirits. Longshan Temple is facing the South. Its architecture  is a three-section design in shape. There are the front hall, the rear hall and the  right/left dragons protecting the middle hall. The layout is square and serene. The  temple was built in Qianlong 5th year in Qing Dynasty. Due to natural disaster and damages caused by men, the temple was restored for several times. The doors, beams, and poles are beautifully decorated. There are a pair of bronze dragon poles in the front hall, four pairs of dragon poles in the middle hall. The sculptures are delicate. There are also exquisite wood sculptures. Among them, the well and Budda setting in the main hall are highly appreciated. The temple has many Chinese poems, verses and lyrics on signs. These add a touch of literature in addition to the religious and sightseeing value.


There are great decorative lamp fairs and temple activities on historical festivals. On each 1st and 15th day each month of lunar year, regular visitors will come to the 

temple for worship ceremony. The temple attracts many people. At normal times, 

there are domestic/foreign tourists visiting the temple. Lungshan Temple is not only a temple, a sightseeing attraction, but also a second-degree historical site. There are traditional streets/shops, antique shops, Buddhists article shops, and Chinese 

medicine shops surrounding the temple. These places are great to visit due to their 

richness in folk art.


【Huaxi (Huasi) Street Night Market】

Huaxi (Huasi) Street Night Market is located nearby Longshan Temple. The night 

market, together with night markets on Guangzhou Street, Wuzhou Street and 

Xichang Street, has formed a large unique market. Various commodit

ies are sold here and it is one of the favored sites of tourists. In the early years, Huaxi (Huasi) Street is famous for congregated porno shops. After prostitution is banned by Taipei City Government, the sightseeing quality is greatly uplifted and the place becomes safer.A Chinese traditional post stands at the entrance of Huaxi (Huasi) Street Night Market. Chinese traditional lamps are hung along the street. There are old, historical shops along the street that provide great dishes. For example, the Danzai noodle restaurant, the favorite of Japanese tourists, started its business here. Other great dishes like meat soup and squid soup attract many people. In the summer, chopped ice plates and fresh juice are in great demand. In the winter, dishes with Chinese medicine attract many visitors.


【Taipei 101 shopping Mall】

Taipei 101 is the tallest building in the world, with a mass of shops on the lower floors, incorporating many top brands under the LVMH group, such as Louis Vuitton, Dior, Celine, etc. The fourth floor houses the Page One bookstore from Singapore, with the highest-roofed coffee house in Taipei and many fine restaurants.

We aspire to travel around the world, to see beautiful scenery, breathe natural fresh air, try different cuisines, and experience new cultures. Travel is supposed to be a wonderful, romantic, and memorable activity. However, people often get rushed in their itinerary to meet tight schedules, spending too much time on road and much less time in seeing and enjoying the beautiful sights, all in a superficial and cursory manner. As a result, travel often becomes a painful and overall exhausting experience.
