Taiwan Day 5 : Taipei 101 + Jay Chou's Deja Vu Restaurant

7D Taiwan trip December 2012 : Kaohsiung + Taipei

First stop - Taipei 101

Taipei 101 was the highest building in the world until it is replaced by Burj Khalifa in Dubai in 2010.
It is quite a distance between Taipei city hall station to Taipei 101. I usually walk and enjoy the CBD area from train station to Taipei 101. 

There is also a free shuttle bus with 15 minutes interval at Taipei city hall station exit 2. 

You would be surprised to know that Taiwan is a very dogs friendly country. I mean you can see dogs everywhere, even in the shopping malls and in the shops where the shop attendents bring their pet dogs to work! Unlike Taiwan,  most hawker centers in Singapore do not allow animals in.

Next stop - Deja Vu restaurant

This fine dining restaurant is a joint venture between 2 Taiwan celebrities - a singer, Jay Chou 周杰伦, and a magician, Liu Qian 刘谦 - Magic Themed Restaurant : Deja Vu.
Out of three restaurants that Jay owned, I like this the most. I was kind of hoping to see him there but I guess I will meet him in my dream instead.

You will see Jay's bat mobile, antique piano, bike, many century-old furnitures and many props used by Liu Qian in his magic shows.
