Kudos on trying chou doufu and treading the night markets. I couldn't abide a second helping of stinky tofu myself though my Taiwanese friends adore it. Have you made the de rigeur pilgramage to Din Tai Fung? Need any recos? How long are you there for? Taiwan must be buzzing with Linsanity.

Most people don't realize that the island has 200 mountains between 9500 and almost 13000 feet high, as well as a city the size of Chicago. From the 5 story flashing neon karaoke palaces to the massive National Museum laden with ancient treasures, the place is a total contrast in cultures.
