Day 5 in Taiwan

On the last day in Taiwan, we went over to Xi Men Ding in the morning to shop.

Then, after troubling Vincent's friends again, we managed to get into Taipei International Floral Exposition (open till April 2011).

We visited one of the many pavillions available - Angel Life Pavillion.

First, we went to the tropical garden.

The flower arrangement is eye-catching.

You won't be able to finish visiting the whole exposition in a day. Many said it will take 3 days to visit the whole exposition if you are really into plants.

The exposition is quite crowded even during weekdays. Ai Tee told me that we have to queue up as early as 7.30am to get the tickets into each pavillion.

We went to watch one of the shows, which basically features a 10-minutes animation. I feel those animation in a few casinos in Macau is more impressive :P

More plants on display - and a caterpillar in a cocoon as well :)

After that, we had dinner in Taipei 101... and then bought tickets to the observatory deck.

Night view of Taipei city...

Taipei 101 has the fastest elevators in the world. It takes 39 seconds to the top (1,010m). After that, Vincent's friends drove us to the airport. We are very thankful to have them bringing us around.
