I've been there. Taipei 101 is a must do. The GH Taipei is nice and a 60 second walk from Taipei 101. This thread belongs in the destinations and trip planning advice thread btw :)

The shliach there is a very nice guy! Actually this applies to other places too but I think that if you're planning on eating by him/using his services it would be nice and appropriate to offer him to bring him stuff from the USA (if you're able to).

Thailand is like the Jerusalem of the Far East... Most Shluchim in the area get their meat from there for example

Resurrection time: Has anyone spent shabbos in Taipei? How does it compare to Seoul if choosing between the two?
