Whenever I'm in Taipei, I always make sure to visit the Shin Kong life tower near the Taipei Main Station. There are lots of boutiques to shop at and at the basement, food choices and Taiwanese small eats to bring home to friends.

The atmosphere makes feeling like you're sitting around the clouds. Maybe it was romantic because I was proposed by my husband there. Anyway, people may arrange their special day there!
