THE LIN Hotel @ Taichung (Taiwan)

THE LIN in Taichung is undoubtedly one of the most luxurious hotels that I've ever stayed in. Upon arriving at the 5-star hotel, I was greeted by the sight of eight Lamborghinis parked right in front of the hotel. I asked the doorman if there was a car show or something but he said the cars belonged to guests who were staying at the hotel. I should have known then, what I was getting myself into.

Fengjia Night Market (Tai Chung) - 7 Delicious Street Food that You Must Eat

 photo Fengjia Night Market TaiChung.jpg
My second trip to Taiwan presented me with the opportunity to visit Fengjia Night Market in Tai Chung. Fengjia is the largest night market in Taiwan and it has so much to offer in terms of food and shopping. Our cab driver told us what to eat at Fengjia Night Market and where the stalls are so we managed to locate them with ease. While we tried far too much food for our own good, some were really disappointing so we have compiled this list of food that we deemed worthy of your time and money.
