Suggestion: Go early and maybe start in the gardens which open an hour before the palace. Also expect a lot of exercise. This place is immense.
I love matcha, and matcha isn't the easiest to find in Korea. But I found a really lovely matcha cafe in Seoul. So of course I spent the whole afternoon there.
Always in need of a good tea break, one in a cute hanok style courtyard is absolutely delightful.
There are so many tea and bubble tea chains. Here's another, they offer some very aesthetically pleasing teas.
A tea shop, part of a chain, that was near my hotel, and my last spot in Taipei.
A tall building for great views and to see a wind damper in person.
A good spot to grab some tea, though it's a chain so maybe see if there's one closer to you.
Spent my Chuseok holiday in Taipei, mostly eating.
A popular bubble tea shop found throughout Tokyo with a cute mascot.
I visited the temple on the back of the 10 yen coin.
