A Day Away From Taipei: Jiufen and Keelung

Taiwan has so many great reasons to visit, the food, the architecture, the scenery, but the best part of Taiwan is it is small enough that you can experience it all in only a few days. Taipei is the center of life in Taiwan, and there is plenty there to keep you busy. But, with easy access to the many other cities, and amount you can fit in a day there, you’d be crazy not to step out of the capital.

Le Cafeotheque

This cafe, located right on the Seine, is great for setting up your laptop and getting work done. Unlike many other Parisian coffee shops, this one is actually pretty spacious with several seating areas to choose from. They are also pretty serious about their coffee and sell their own beans, which you can get a look at when you walk in! Like almost every coffee shop, they have a good selection of sweets, as well as small lunch options like quiche and even empanadas. On the weekend laptops aren’t allowed
