    Unfortunately I am not going to 4CC, but I am visiting Taipei in October (my brother lives there). Thank you so much for all the information in this thread....I will copy and paste it into a document for reference when the trip gets closer!

    I am so delighted to hear that! :) I think I'm getting more excited about what people will think of Taipei than the actual competition itself. :lol:

    Another place that I feel might be worth going to, but is a bit further away, is Wulai.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wulai_District

    It isn't the most stunning display of nature that Taiwan has to offer, but at least it's reachable with public transportation from Taipei City and is a nice one-day/half-day trip if you just want to see some pretty lush trees. :)

    Here are some other natural park places (Yehliu and Yangmingshan) that are also a bit further from the city, but nice if you have some extra time for sightseeing. :)

    Just wanted to add to some of the Taipei love. I was there 10 years ago. Shilin night market was my favourite among the night markets - it is the biggest and there is a lot of variety (clothes, food, etc.) I would also recommend the jade market for souvenirs. It is not that big (at least not 10 years ago) but they make fun trinkets out of jade. I bought a small jade keychain trinket shaped like a roller blade when I was there. There were no ice skates - I checked - but maybe some people will make some now that 4CC is there....

    Restaurants I find intriguing but haven't tried are the Yonghe Soy Milk King (where you can drink hot soy milk 24 hours a day) and the Modern Toilet restaurant (where seats are in the shape of urinals). There is certainly a lot of variety in Taipei!
