I think Park Lane by CMP is a relatively new development. It’s a vibrant area with a cool museum, park and Eslite (just about the most popular hangout bookstore in Taiwan) and you just can’t miss it if you are in Taichung for the weekend.
I expended almost all my energy the previous day and just wanted to sleep in for the day but the lure of cheap and good breakfast in Taiwan compelled me to get up for a meal.
Taiwan seemed to be the natural place to pick for a solo trip since it was relatively safe and manageable. For $490, I’ve settled the return tickets, insurance, extra baggage (of course!) with Scoot and started planning my travel itinerary for my first solo trip in Taiwan.
