taipei/ seoul: chiang kai sek memorial hall & seoul airbnb
Last day in Taiwan… well for my family. This was my last half day in Taiwan for a few weeks while I travelled around Asia.
Since our flight was in the evening, we headed to the Chiang Kai Sek Memorial Hall to fill up our half day. It’s actually a really beautiful structure, more so than the Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall. And although it looks mildly cloudy there, it was sweltering hot that day.
After what seemed like way too many steps, we made it to the top.
Guards marching! Lucky, again. Like I said last time, Taiwanese soldiers seem to be the most in sync out of all the guard changes I’ve seen (all 3 of the guard changes). After finding shelter in the museum downstairs, we headed back to our bed and breakfast, picked up our luggage and went to good ol’ Taoyuan Airport. Of course, our flight to Seoul was delayed by like 3 hours. Great.
Thankfully, our Airbnb hosts in Seoul were the most AMAZING people ever. We communicated through Kakao when we were at Taipei — the Korean version of Line or Whatsapp — and found out that we might not make it for the last bus to Itaewon, where our Airbnb was located. Rather, Jang-soon insisted on picking us up from Seoul subway station at 1am. Him and his wife arrived to pick us up and drop us off at the Airbnb, and it was really the sweetest thing ever because they don’t speak English at all. Thank lord for smartphones and translating apps. They even showed us around the facilities, where the closest metro stop was, and convenience store as well. ANDDDDDD, To top it off, they bought us rice cakes! Ddeok is like the best! So sweet (them and the rice cakes). Korean hospitality, y’all!
