MRT is also accessible in the area.

What to eat in Taiwan? Go for street food! It’s a must visit in places like Shilin Night Market. It is a bit costly but worth the price for Filipinos like us who loves food! You should try eating Gua Bao, Da Chang Bao Siao Chang, Xiao Long Bao, Taiwanese Fried Chicken, Beef Noodles, Tofu and Mochi.
