It’s that time of year again. Time for large meals, traveling, and fireworks. Taipei thus far seems less crazy during the week gearing up to the Chinese new year than our experience on the mainland. Though, we did find a market street packed with stalls ready to cater to the upcoming festivities.

Of course, your front door must be adorned with good luck scrolls for the new year. Here’s your guy.

Then, you need to stock your house with snacks and dried squid for the next few weeks.

Get yourself a sausage snack and a strawberry milkshake while you’re here.
