Din Tai Fung Taipei 101 Store: Tours & Tickets
What people are saying about Din Tai Fung Taipei 101 Store
Unfortunately it was raining during the trip. However, the clouds in the mountains created an atmosphere of its own. We visited the coast for 15 min to take some pictures and spent other 10 min at a waterfall. For Jiufen we had 75 min. The meeting point was a 100 year old tea house. If you are not much interested in buying souvenirs than go straight to the tea house and enjoy a tea in really nice location. This is the highlight of the tour. If you are traveling with children, don’t bring your stroller along. The stops are to short, the streets in Jiufen are to crowded and you have to go down a lot of stairs to arrive at the pick up point.
Chiufen Village is too touristy to be genuinely interesting
Unfortunately it rained heavily the whole day so I cannot be 100% objective. On the way there were some interesting rock formations that we stopped for (in the rain). Chiufen is just one street with hundreds of little tourist shops and thousands of tourists crowding every inch. There was no kind of local culture.
the whole experience was great from the Temple visit to the Night Market, the dinner at the 101 Food Court and going to the top of 101. The guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. He (Kasi) made the trip special
We arrived with the printed voucher at 11am, did not have to wait at all and was ushered in straight away which was great. We were served a set meal I guess the most popular menus but serving size was pretty small!
What made the tour worth it are the Din Tai Fung dinner at Taipei 101 and the tour of Lungshan Temple. We also walked through a night market but did not spend a lot of time in it.
