Here's Taipei version of suburbs, for those who like density. With one exception, all the pictures posted here were taken outside Taipei City, in Taipei County.

Let's start:
Yonghe city 永和 (I will use characters and pinyin), south of Taipei, my old neighborhood


main streets








the labyrinth of lanes and alleys
















you need to go to the roof to see this madness from above








Zhonghe city 中和, right behind Yonghe, me new neighborhood

oh, here is some space and greenery


the alternative - rooftop garden


back to the street


here we eat breakfast


not exactly Suzhou, but... we also have canals


business park


and elevated road


mountains south of Taipei Basin




views toward Xindian 新店






Taipei Basin looks like this, all built up


Banqiao city 板橋, south west of Taipei, capitol and the biggest city in Taipei County

chaos




Banqiao Train Station area, with Taipei County Government








Xindian city 新店, south east of Taipei






Shulin city 樹林, south west of Taipei, behind Banqiao, less dense, and more industrialised area, from mountains here you can see Taiwan High Speed Rail






the edge of the city


Sanchong 三重, west of Taipei, right across the river from Taipei Main Sation

toward Taipei










Zhuwei 竹圍, north of Taipei




Xizhi 汐止, east of Taipei




another business park






and finally, for those who didn't survive this threat (this one is in Taipei City)


or alternative (Taipei County)


RIP :runaway:

I think in the large/main streets Taipei looks cleaner/better maintained than Guangzhou, although Guangzhou has improved a lot.

A Japanese city, minus the gazillion railways, plus a few gazillion scooters
