The go to Taiwan, although less for the first time the excitement and anticipation, but more of a return visit of the rational and calm. Before he done enough homework, access to a large number of Taiwan-related information, all designed to desired places to visit and understand the project, with curiosity, longing, but also left with little doubt the road.
Ten days and nine nights of the trip come and gone, although cursory, a glimpse, but still leave a good impression of Taiwan, its warmth, its beauty, its bustling but not luxury, it's simple but not dull all that I have in mind. special finishing this article, and shared with them and feel.

Unfortunately, the reason because of the time, we only went to the Taipei City bookshop a book Chungking South Road Street, Street tour. about 200 meters long to open a street in a series of dozens of bookstores, chain stores, etc. which Kingstone, there are many old bookstore, the above-mentioned simplified Taiwan's largest bookstore - Taiwan and Fujian bookstores also here, there are a lot like San Min Book Company, publishers of World Book and other stores.
