Xinyi and Eslite

They say that Eslite’s Xinyi branch is a must-visit, so we found ourselves looking for it on our third day in Taiwan.

X intersections! ♥

But before that, we decided to check out the Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall. It was easily accessible, thanks to the very convenient and efficient Metro Taipei.

We realized that this memorial hall also offered a good view of the Taipei 101 from a distance.

The compound is like a public park of sorts. Vendors are aplenty—bought a tennis trainer here!

A few minutes of walking and we came across this building that houses not only books but novelty items as well.

As it turns out, it’s not just a bookstore

Lunch at the basement. This reminds me of Pepper Lunch

Also part of our itinerary is CP Living Mall. It’s best to take a cab than to attempt to walk all the way to this mall.

The landmark! A dome-like structure

You can’t miss this structure

I wish for Eslite-style stores here, too.
