    Default crowded place

    Please check the following paragraph.

    I hate taking a trip to Taipei. There are hundreds of thousands of people living and working in Taipei, so it is always crowded. I donít like crowded place. Everything is also expensive in Taipei so that I canít afford to go shopping there. I donít like to take a trip toTaipei.

    First Sentence -- What you've written is ok, but this is a more common way of expressing it:
    "I hate making trips to Taipei."
    or simply:
    "I hate trips to Taipei."

    Second Sentence -- Perfectly fine. I would use 'there' instead of 'Taipei', since you've already established what city you're talking about.

    Third Sentence -- I've rearranged this sentence so it flows more smoothly:
    "Also, everything is so expensive that I can't afford to go shopping there."

    Fourth Sentence -- It's all right grammatically, but the reiteration of your first sentence hardly seems necessary.
