I love ice cream. But liquid nitrogen ice cream? JUST TAKE MY MONEY.

The ice cream come with a variety of toppings, including pop rocks, caramel chips and rice puffs.

Hailed as one of the 25 most beautiful public libraries in the world by Flavorwire, the Beitou public library boasts a collection of 20,000 works in both English and Chinese, as well as unique architecture. If you’re a book lover like I am, hop over to the library and I guarantee you won’t be disappointed!
35th Floor Starbucks

Address: Taipei 101
Yes, I know Starbucks stores are everywhere. But this one is different. Found in Taipei 101, this particular Starbucks store offers a stunning view of Taipei city 35 floors below. On a side note, if you have acrophobia (a fear of heights), this may not be such a good idea.
Moooon River Cafe
Address: No. 218, Ruiguang Road, Neihu District, Taipei
Just look at the picture, and tell me you don’t want to go there. Named after “Moon River” by Henry Mancini, Moooon River cafe offers a wide selection of books for its customers to read and purchase. Read? Yes, it’s a book cafe.
