Final Taipei itinerary?

See what we dreamed and drafted for our 8-days Taiwan tour.

It was a nimble process planning this Taiwan trip.

From steering away from the maddening crowds when we want to, to making sure the destinations will be lively (yet hopefully, not congested) on our visit.

Overall, spreading the fun throughout our time in Taiwan.

Anyhow, will this final version be a fun-filled itinerary?
