The remainder of the time in Taipei was thankfully met with good, if rather humid weather. We stepped out to climb the highest peak in the YangMing Mountain area – 7 Star Mountain. Hiking in the UK is rather different to Taiwan. Here, two hours of climbing steps is rewarded by a similar amount of time trudging down. Again, I can really begin to see why nobody likes the outside here. My legs hurt! It’s hot! I want to go home!

Rather a painful descent was a prelude to aching legs the next day
Delicious food at Din Tai Feng in the evening – one of Taipei’s most famous restaurants
And back to the hotel – spot the 4th floor
