Alright, today Wing and I got up late, say like.. 12? 😛
Let’s say it’s catching up on sleep!
Alright so what was instore for today..
Went to 故宮 (National Palace Museum) – antiques from 8,000 years ago!!
Alright so.. the thing is that despite how nice and big the place is and how old the treasures are.. there was absolutely no photo taking allowed inside.
People will hold signs saying so..
But the displays ranged from waaaaaaaaaaaaay back, through all the dynasties (mainly Ming and Qing) through to modern times!
But.. all those national treasures of China, it’s definitely something to see because it’s so well preserved, things ranging from like the furniture of the Qing Dynasty to the jade carvings and literature.. painting.. caligraphy.. over 15 displays!
Also it’s like 80NT if you’re a student! Or 160NT if you’re an adult, that’s like roughly less than $4AUD and $8AUD!!!
If you’re a pensioner/disabled (+one accompanying person) you get to go in for FREE.
So if any of you go to Taiwan/Taipei, you DEFINITELY have to go to this place – it’s a big part of history, not just Chinese, but the world too!
So we headed to the garden afterwards because it’s free if you bought a ticket to the museum..
Just very quickly:
So after we got into the garden..
Afterwards we went to Shilin Night Market.
To me it was worth the wait, not to WING though 😛
Afterwards we went back to ShiLin and went to the arcade for a bit.. watched Wing play DDR and get “FAILED” LOL!
Lucky he said NO to video-ing and youtubing it.
After that we went bowling for 1 round, just very quickly (like $5AUD)
