Following the post of where to stay in Taiwan, I would like to introduce some nice places to eat and attractions of Taipei during my business trip last year. If you have read some history about Taiwan, you might know it was a dependency of Japan between 1895 and 1945. Thus it is easy to find some Japanese style architecture, even the residential area throughout the city. Ji Dai 1931 is one of those which remain the style of the Showa period in Japan.
A little background of the restaurant, it is owned by a Japan catering group which have 30 restaurants throughout Japan. So this is one of those they expanded in Taiwan. It is situated in Zhongshan district which takes only 5 minutes walkable distance from Zhongshan station, it is very easy to find. It named Ji Dai (Time) 1931 because they wish their customer could feel being into the time of that period while dining in the restaurant. Being successfully remain the exterior of the architecture of marble Soda factory (predecessor of Ji Dai 1931), it make it more unique and stand out from a modern city.
I felt amazing when you could see such a old style architecture situated in Zhongshan district (which is full of shopping mall, different brands). I was addicted to the exterior and no doubt you would be interested to get in of such historical style with 2 old style benches in front.

Continues my last trip in Chiangmai, we went to this restaurant without any planning on our last day, just to find a place that could spend our time for the delayed flight for almost 7 hours! What a nightmare! However because of this delayed, we decided to look for some new dining place that’s close to our hotel.
We have no idea what kind of food they offer but the gorgeous building was attractive enough for me to look into their menu. There are various kinds of Thai food with reasonable prices. Just a sneak peak from the exterior you can either sit outside and inside. So let’s see how’s the interior look and feel.
We were welcomed by their staff with such a friendly smile on their face and they were so attentive. We have to sit interior as the outer seats are full. The restaurant is huge and have a very beautiful environment. There’s a cafe bar on the side and in the middle there’s a long table. I love the interior decoration and obviously this have been well designed. It is so stylish yet tradition with the leak wood Chiangmai design. The lighting of the store is very soft and made us feel so relax to spend our time for our delayed flight! Guess we found a perfect dining place. How exciting this was in such an unexpected situation!

There are always different kinds of travels, but I would prefer a more leisure, relax way on my trip after a busy days in office. There’s always some excuse to treat yourself better!
Continue of my trip in Chiang Mai. We went to a super romantic restaurant Dash! Teak House Restaurant.I have made a reservation in advance before we came. So after a full day sightseeing, exploring the old city we decided to spend our night in this traditional architecture restaurant.
You all deserve a little wanderlust
One thing you may aware, (if you have been in Chiangmai), there are always teak wood architecture everywhere. They call this Lanna style architecture of Northern Thailand. The Dash! Restaurant looks very traditional teak wood style. That’s also the reason why I chose to spend my night here. As we arrived a bit early, guess was around 6:30. It’s still bright and it’s too early to get dark. The location was easy to find and it wasn’t a tourist location.
There are lots of red lantern decorated all around the ceiling of each floors. It given the very strong asia feel architecture with the wooden roof. Since we didn’t made our request in the reservation so the waiter just brought us to the interior. There is a lovely garden so if you wish to sit outdoor, just make sure to tell them your request as I know they were very full and there are only few tables!
