Yes I was waiting for that. Taipei is actually hotter then Ktown in the summer months but Ktown has dry , sunny , mild winters (outside of a few cold fronts). Whereas Taipei winters suck ass.
So in general, for the most part of the year, except summer, Ktown is hotter. I used to go to Ktown nearly every week for a night or two for biz. Iv grown to really like the place. If and when I can return to live on the rock, Id pick Ktown. OF course, Taipei actually has a lot more activities going for it. Many scenic spots are closer. Whereas Ktown spots are far away, similar to the Chungle.
I like the "feel" of Ktown. And like that captain on the sub with denzel heading out smoking that cigar. "I don't trust air i cant see" pretty much sums up the air there
. SO you cant breathe the air there (or if you did you should be able to identify the various elements ) and you certainly can not drink the water there. But outside of that, its awesome.
And yeah once you did monkey mountain once and the beach and went to the small local airport to watch a few planes take off and land, its really like previously said, beach yourself somewhere with a nice bottle and pleasant (female) scenery.
I say, Ktown people are a few smidges nicer then TAipei people (even if most TAipei people are imported from the various parts of the rock). Its easy to chat up sexy and cute girls working at cafes there !
There was this one cafe that was an awesome, very avant garde place with awesome coffees and chee-cha. Made from a small tiny local orange like fruit.
You pay for the drink, which was all like 150 to 180 but they would bring out cookies and cakes and you can help yourself to any of that.
And for lunch and dinner, even more novel. They provided a free bento box (you can choose one from made at their sister store nearby, priced at bout 120nt).
THis must be the only place in the world that provides a free meal with a drink.
A nice meal too, I couldnt believe it. But then like all things , it had to end.
It became some sort of big pub and then it was just another pub.
But Ktown? Nice weather, esxy and friendly girls working in coffee shops (and I don't mean the sex kinds). Whats not to love?
