Why I love Taipei: Pedestrian lane

Taipei pedestrian lane taken in Taipei Zoo

See the distance of the pedestrian lane from the cars? It's huge! That was why I was able to survive a month in Taipei without a companion. I could easily cross the street without fear of endangering myself. The cars stop when the stop light turns red and the walking sign turns green. The walking sign has a number signal of how long you can cross the street.

The box in front of the pedestrian lane is for the motorcycles. More reasons to love Taipei in the next few posts hehe
