    Taipei is a bustling, busy international city full of all kinds of activities, people, entertainment and, of course, lots of stores and business open 24/7.

    I finished my exams, which I sat one after the other, and it has me mentally and physically exhausted!

    I can finally take a short break now. I'm planning on taking a camping trip, this summer, where I can fish, swim and have fun.

    You don't have to use 'sat'; e.g., to sit an exam. It's a collocation. That's all. It means take.
