My view of Taiwan.

Having experienced airports on the Asian countries ( Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Philippine, Vietnam, China, Hongkong, Korea etc) I found that Taipei, Taiwan has the worst looking international Airport.

For all the hoolabaloo Taiwan thrown out by telling other nations their accomplishments, Taiwan do not think to improve their International Airport. The design is definitely seventies style, with old plastic PVC chairs, dark empty waiting rooms, stinky toilets and mediocre dutyfree shops.

Inside the country on the other hand, Taipei is a quite impressive city, it is clean, and strangely devoid of any graffiti. I reckon the price of spray paints cans are above the reach of the children there.

I went to the Taipei 101 building which is currently still the world tallest building. The elevator takes 28 seconds to reach 500 meters. It is pressurized so your ear do not pop while inside. Up form the top, tall buildings seems like tiny toys. Picture attached.

While in Taipei I stayed in the Sheraton, the room cost AUD$300 a night but you still have to pay extra to get internet connection Mad Bloody diggers!! and to make it worse, there is a sign telling visitors the price of the LAN cable is NT$500. There must be plenty of tourist like to swipe old 1 meter LAN cables there!!

Conducting business in Taiwan starts with gift exchanges, while I get a few taiwanese trinkets, my gift to them is a definite hit. I went to some gift shop here in Sydney and buy some kangaroo marble pouch Embarassed if you know what I meant. And when exchanging gifts, they went ballistic!!! I thought that it is perfect Very Happy

So there is my second installment. I hope you enjoy it.

Dimitri, I think you should know, there are not many cute girls there in China, Hongkong and Taiwan. The cute ones has already been whisked out to LA, Paris, etc. for walkway models Shocked . What ones left there were either been spoken for and kept indoors or the mediocre lots that walks amongs the mortals like us. Very Happy Very Happy So picture of cute girls? Sad not happy...

Eh, sorry skinny models do not mean cute girls to me, I like them with alittle meat on them myself. I know many cute asian girls here so I got to asume there are a few there. Cool

Tell you what I'll mail you a picture of a girl I found online once in a girls with guns thread that most gun sites have, shes properly dressed so if the wife sees your in the clear. But the reason its her picture is well shes pretty much exactly the type of girl I go after. Laughing

'Mitri.....you are starting to worry me mate. Confused Shocked Very Happy

If you visit SE Asia 'Mitri I suggest VERY STRONGLY that you stay well away from places like Boogie Street. There are some extremely attractive "girls" Confused to be found there!! I'll say nothing more than that.

Oh yeah, and remember......."Beauty is only skin deep; but UGLY goes right to the bone!!"

Very Happy Laughing Very Happy Laughing Haha Haha

Cheers, Vince

I want NO part of this discussion...I will not tell on myself except that on my first West-Pac I was single and married on my second one. The second one became a sight seeing trip...Just not as fun as the first...Just like Los Vegas...What happens in West-Pac stays in West-Pac... From "In-chop" to "Out-chop" is nobody's business...But Boy oh boy!!!

Vince,

If they are on the "boogie street" I probably wouldn't be attractive to them I got different tastes then most guys and if the girl dresses well you know like most of them do thats a turn off for me. Laughing

'Mitri....all I'll say is "boys will be boys and boys will be girls".

On Boogie Street in Singapore you will find boys, girls( a few) and SHIMS. I'll let you use your imagination as to what you think a "shim" may be. Worse part about the shims is that they are extremely attractive to look at and their "attributes" are near perfect....in fact too good to be true. Very Happy

I'll leave this conversation there and add nothing more because methinks if it goes any further it may well get too "descriptive" and possibly obscene.
Surprised Shocked

Cheers, Vince

So you never know.. it may be an attraction there.. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Not that it made any difference to me Razz being of an Asian descendant, we are quite tolerant on those that favor that flavor...
