Taipei : National Palace Museum

By   May 11, 2014

Crowded and noisy. So dark you can barely see a thing (the museum has not much to show anyway). However full of crazy ill-mannered screaming chinese tourists.
Horribly crowded, with huge human traffic in every hallway, smell not funny, the air conditioner is not working well.

If you stay few days in Taipei, don’t bother, don’t worth it. A nightmare.

You literally walk during kilometers to see NOTHING, trying to hopelessly move on, in the middle a lot of rude chinese tourists behaving like cattle, yelling at each other and stupidly standing in front of every display without moving. So you can’t see the very few things to see, and just waiting for their guide to order them to go there and there, still yelling at each other.

I am not kidding, they’re really like that. Looks like Hell.

If you have few days to stay in Taipei, just go to Zhinan Temple or the Zoo, much better to see, than this empty-lame museum.

Only good thing: Free for students.

Unlike museums in my country, in Taiwan you are apparently not allowed to take pictures (even without flash). I took these before the staff told me I couldn’t, didn’t knew, haven’t see any sign.

In Taiwan you just can’t, so they can sell you overpriced souvenirs in the museum shops located at every floor!

I usually love museum, but can forget this one.

Most ridiculous place to see. Not worth the visit.
Totally overrated!
