  • Seriously breathtaking scenery, funky buildings, general cool and relaxed vibe
  • People are more friendly than you would expect. The pace of life is markedly slower here
  • The food is unbelievable. Try any teppanyaki restaurant – we went to Xiāng lián tiě bǎn liàolǐ (“Incense with iron plate dishes”). It was phenomenal and extremely good value
  • We also had some of world’s best dumplings – Din Tai Fung. Get in very early – you’ll be lining up for hours
