Cycle Taiwan - Day 22 Final Day in Taipei & Home Sweet Home.

This breakfast 早餐 was the last for this trip and I still prefer the porky rice in the morning.
After more than 3 weeks in Taiwan Jo must have been bored with Taiwan's breakfast, she opted for sandwich and coffee.
There are a few outlets of Taipei Milk King 台北牛乳大王成都店  in the city, the one we visited was at Chengdu Road GPS : 25.042923, 121.505172 a walking distance from where we were staying.
Our land lady for the last three nights at Mei Kuan Yuan Hotel, she does everything from checking in to housekeeping. We checked out early in the morning and kept our stuffs temporarily at Freebird Apartment for the day.
We visited Taipei Cinema Park again for a daytime experience, the six of us took a leisure walk, hoping to do a last minute shopping before we leave Taiwan in the evening.
The Godzilla made of used spray cans.
And more nice graffiti at the park.
A street (Bao'i Road) with dozens of camera and photography stores I guess you could get all kind of gadgets, the latest cameras, lens and many more here.
臺北府城北門 North Gate was built by Liu Ming-chuan during the reign of Emperor Guangxu in the Qing Dynasty as a measure to expedite urban development by encouraging businessmen to invest in or develop Taipei City. There were five ancient city gates, the North Gate is the only one that remains and the most valuable state-designated historic sites in Taipei.

Not too far away we reached the Taipei Main Station 台北火車站 and were sucked into the underground shopping paradise. The shopping spree began until the Taipei City Mall.
Lunch at Hei Mien Tsai  黑面蔡 in the shopping mall and more walking after the meal.
A tea break in between after a hectic shopping time and all were trying to finish off the Taiwan currency in our pockets.
A quick dinner below Freebird Apartment and came our transport for the transfer to the airport.
This vehicle was good enough to take us to the airport. And it's so long Ximending.
It has been a great 22 days in Taiwan, we went to so many places. At times when I look at some of the photos I can not remember the place we went. If you ask me whether I would want to come back to Taiwan again and I would say a big YES. 
Not too bad we still have some more Taiwanese dollars for beers while waiting for the plane to take off.
Thank you Taiwan for a memorable experience and hope to see you again. Goodbye and 再見.
