I later found out that she's a very famous street performer in Taipei. If you search for 曼青 you can find many videos of her performance in Youtube, Yukou or Tudou. One example below.

According to the information on the Internet, she was born in 1988, and start performing on the street at or before 18. When playing, she listen to the accompanying music from a PSP. My kids took some pictures and video of her performance. I may upload the videos later.

I think I have uploaded most of the more interesting photos from this trip. Needless to say, I was very glad that we made this trip, and looking forward to visit Taiwan again.

2 things I would like to mention:-

1) I was told Grand Hyatt is quite popular with those "3rd encounter"...... :-[ :-[ :-[
2) Yan should be a good guide for Taiwan .....any chance to organise a Taipei golf tour... stay overnight and play 36 holes .... ;D ;D ;D

1. What's 3rd encounter? Ghost? I don't believe in ghost. Hookers? I did not see any. Aliens? I might have seen a few...  ;D

2. Stay over night is too rush. 3 days min for an enjoyable trip. I will go.

Thanks for the sharing and photos...The lady performer is really cool......

Taiwan to me is a place where I think I will visit there when I retire. I would rather go to somewhere which is more physically demanding. However, if we have Yan to be our guide.....I will go too..... ;D

Hang, playing in Taiwan can be very very demanding if you wish.  e.g. we can go cycling in Taichung Tie-ma-Dao (iron-horse-track) with lots of landscape to see.  Or we can go hiking in the Tailuge area.

However, for a relaxed person like Charles, we'd better go so natural hot springs.

Chin, did u try the High mountain tea in Taiwan.  It is good too.  There is a very old tea shop in Taipei city that CKS used to buy from there.  Tea is a bit expensive but tastes really good.

What time you guys prefer and how many days (for golf and for other fun)??
