    Most of Japnese players in this tournament are from NEC so NEC's taiwan with their Japanese bosses brought their taiwanese staff to cheer for Japan team..it was funny that Taiwanese NEC had to support the Japanese instead of their own player.

    Udom, Thai's coach told me that Chaiyut Triyachart 's mother( SIN MD and XD) was used to be Thai ladies Champion, Daruni.
    Apparently Chaiyut comes from rich family...his father built badminton hall in northeast of Thailand......

    What else??..

    ..shopping, eating, sightseeing and.........................more shopping..
    It is currently the tallest bldg in the world (soon to be "officially" replaced by the one in Dubai)..Actually it's also being hailed as one of the Seven New Wonders of the World..:cool:
    The building's tower lights also change its lights every night..Tonight should be the purple color...:cool:
    Has an outdoor observatory tower (about $13 to get in)..
    ..(you should go, too, before it's no longer the tallest bldg in the world);)

    I agree that there's probably nothing interesting to do at Taipei 101 except for Shopping and Eating. I spend less than 1.5 hrs everytime I visit that tower.

    But, the areas around Taipei 101 (Hsin Yi) is quite interesting....I like the Mitsukoshi (malls spread out around the areas), and the Village Cineplex. There's also a flagship outlet of the biggest bookstore there (Elite).
