On our last day, we woke up early and caught a cab over to the HSR station to get back to Taipei. We hopped on the train and headed back to Taipei for just a few more adventures before going back to reality.
One of the great things about the Taipei Main Station is that they have giant lockers near the HSR ticket counters that you can utilize for storage for a few hours to a whole day. These lockers are large enough to hold hiking backpacks so I definitely recommend it. If you have roller luggage, they have a few that may fit the smaller ones but if you have a large roller suitcase these will not work. When you utilize these lockers, make sure you read the directions well before you start utilizing it. We had a few moments where we got a bit a confused and almost locked ourselves out of the locker. After you get the locker assigned and you’ve put your luggage in there, you will get a little ticket that has a special code on it. This code will be necessary for you to get your luggage again. That being said, one thing to keep in mind is that once you officially open it, you will have to pay again for a second code. These are not lockers that you can constantly get into. After we finally got the thing figured out, we hopped on the MRT into the city.
We had a few last minute things to get taken care of such as finally buying trinkets and gifts for everyone back home. We hit up some of the places we had already visited like the ATT4FUN building and XiMenDing. After we had finally finished our shopping, we shopped on the HSR and headed back to the Taoyuan Airport.
After checking in, we had enough time to get some food and headed to Moos Burger. Have you ever had a burger with a rice bun? It is amazing and not as heavy a regular bun.
After we finally finished our food, we headed to our gate and ended up meeting the rest of the group. There were about 10 of us taking the same flight home so we had a chance to catch up and charge our products in time for the flight.
Once we got onto the flight, we saw that most of the flight was empty and so most of us ended up getting about two seats to ourselves for the entire flight home. It really helped with the 10 hour flight home from Taipei.
That ended my journey to Asia in 2015. It was a great experience hanging out with my friends and seeing new places, but also being able to share what I love the most about Taipei.
Taiwan is one of my favorite places in the world and it will always hold a special place in my heart. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to share it with people that I adore. I wouldn’t have traded anything on this trip for the world.
