Of all the countries I have visited I think Taiwan is my favorite. There is no doubt that Taipei is far and away my favorite city in the world. You can find any and everything there. Shopping is great and lots of fun, especially in Haggler's Alley. Nightlife is very, very different from most other countries that I have visited. A night on the town took us down through alleys where dentists, VD clinics, and soup kitchens (with crates of snakes stacked at the entrance) were side by side.
