Prepare to queue up at this legendary restaurant – Din Tai Fung 鼎泰豐 , Xinyi store. Warm Taiwanese hospitality and DELICIOUS xiaolongbao :9 No need to break the piggy bank for this place. They are tasty and super reasonable with their prices (NT$200 for 10 xiaolong bao!!!). There are multiple branches even in Taipei, make sure you’re going to the right one. It is Xinyi that you need to get to.

Shurijo site is 1 of a 9 parts UNESCO site (Gusuku) in Okinawa. A rather unusual arrangement really, these 9 sites are scattered all over the prefecture and isn’t all next to each other. The other 8 are:

Tamaudun 玉陵 – Naha 那覇市

Sonohyan-utaki Ishimon 園比屋武御嶽石門 – Naha 那覇市

Shikinaen 識名園 – Naha 那覇市

Sefa-utaki 斎場御嶽 – Nanjo 南城市
