No trip to Taiwan would be complete without a visit to one of the night markets every night, at least, according to hubby 😛
Since we were at 九份 Jiufen earlier in the day, 基隆 Keelung was the most logical option for this evening. Mr J happened to be in Taipei during this period of time, so we decided to meet up at this night market.
After a good rest at the hotel, we were off to 國立國父紀念館 National Dr Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall.
Dad was very interested in the galleries and we spent about 3 hours here, catching both the hourly 儀隊交接 exchanging of guards ceremony, as well as the 降旗儀式 flag lowering ceremony at around 5.30pm.
It was our first time catching the flag lowering ceremony, thanks to a local who advised us to stay on, during our chat in the gardens. It was certainly worth staying on for it!
From the gardens, we also had a good view of Taipei 101, as we watched it being lit up as night fell.
By the time we left National Dr Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall, it was almost 7pm. Hence, we just went to 北平都一處 Beijing Do It True restaurant directly opposite the memorial hall.
