The new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
aren't the only newlyweds celebrating
their union this weekend.
Comedian Rob Schneider and his new wife
, TV producer Patricia Azarcoya Arce enjoyed a week-long honeymoon in Taiwan after their April 23 wedding.
"Taiwan is a beautiful place where I have been many times promoting my movies," Schneider says. "When I was at the LA Dodgers' Taiwan Day, it reminded me of the island's friendly people and great foods."
The newlyweds took advantage of the local cuisine, dining at the famous Din Tai Fung restaurant in Taipei, as well as at the Shilin Night Market, where they enjoyed handmade small plates (including skewered octopus and oyster omelet) prepared by local vendors.
They also made time for shopping – "My wife has never been to Taiwan before, and I told her that a fashionista like her needs to visit the amazing night markets," said Schneider – and sightseeing.
The couple visited the Ten Ren Tea Culture museum, the Taipei 101 skyscraper, and the National Palace Museum, before departing on Sunday.
