Seven deadly sins -- seven lively Asian cities. We all stray off the path of righteousness from time to time.
So if you're going to end up in hell due to a temptation to eat more than your fair share of stinky tofu, take a detour to Taipei first. Or if pride's your vice, take a turn toward Manila.
Click through the pages to see how these Asian cities take a sin and turn it into a raison d'être.
1. Gluttony: Taipei, Taiwan
Two men, four chopsticks, myriad good reasons to eat out again.
Cheap eats, everywhere, day or night.
Taipei sports 18 streets dedicated to nothing other than food. Where you might usually expect a bus shelter, instead you'll find a barbecue. Sidewalks become snack stalls. The pungent smell of stinky tofu fills the air. Night markets in Taipei have become famous for their snack selections, or xiaochi, literally meaning "small eats."
The dishes may be little, but so are the prices, running around US$1-2 dollars. A fat gut never came so easily.
