I flew economy to Taipei but because of the Mabuhay Miles Prestige Card that Allied Band Mastercard gave me I was able to access the China Airlines lounge in Taipei’s Taoyuan airport.
When I first landed in Taipei at the old, unrenovated airport terminal it reminded me of our old and dated NAIA 1 terminal. At the departure area I was surprised at how nice the new terminal was.
This was just one their wall art featuring Chinese calligraphy.
As much as I wish and dream I don’t think we’ll ever have a restroom as nice as this in our airport.
Yes this mosaic art work hung in the ladies room.
It’s all about small details like this painted glass divider that made the restroom so nice and classy.
No harsh fluorescent lighting here.
Isn’t this the cutest and most practical thing?
I forgot to touch the leaves but I suspect they’re real.
This lounge was for several airlines.
I was so ‘aliw’ with this automated disposable towel dispenser.
It saves on packaging and is sanitary.
There wasn’t much food options but there were a lot of drinks.
This was the first time I saw heated and sanitized coffee cups in a lounge.
I didn’t like the sparse snacks they had.
The noodle bar wasn’t exactly booming with orders.
My mom said the noodle soup was blah.
I just had a can of cold and unsweetened strong oolong tea.
Sweet potato!!! This is something you’ll never see in any airport lounge but I was ecstatic to see it.
The sweet potato were thin and scrawny.
I really love Taiwan’s sweet potatoes. They were so sweet like it was drenched with maple syrup. I was so happy this was my last meal in Taipei. I wish I brought some Ziploc to take some home.
