Customer Travel Tip: Have cash on hand! Night markets only accept cash. Banks that I have seen from America while in Taipei are CITI Bank and Bank of America. So if you don't want ATM fees from converting USD to NTD, banking with one of these two banks is an option.

Liked: The food is great! It's cheap and delicious.

Disliked: If anything, the weather would be the one thing that I disliked the most. It rains a lot, and it's really hot and humid in Taipei (at least during August/September).
