Teapot Mountain

Hiking Teapot Mountain in Taiwan, plus Nanya and Yin Yang Sea on Day 6 (pt 1)

Hiking Teapot Mountain was the highlight of Day 6 of our Eastern Taiwan Tour. In fact, there were so many attractions located along Northeastern Coast of Taiwan that our initial plan was to set off from Luodong at 4am. What? Such ungodly hours! Why so early? If you stay till the end of this story, you would probably suggest that we set off earlier. Other than hiking Teapot Mountain, we also visited Bitou, Nanya, Yin Yang Sea …

Xiangshan

Taipei City Tour: Songshan Cultural Park, Xiangshan, Tonghua, Raohe Night Market (Day 6)

Day 6 of my Taipei’s 8 Days Tour brought me to Xinyi District, where I would cover Songshan Cultural & Creative Park (松山文創園區), Xiangshan (象山), Tonghua Night Market (通化夜市) and Raohe Night Market (饒河夜市). The good thing about staying in a proper accommodation as compared to a cubicle (Neosoho) was 自然醒 or waking up naturally. For the first time in this trip, I’ve had 8 hours of undisturbed sleep. The bad thing as mentioned earlier, was how late …

Taiwan 8 Days Trip (Day 2 – pt 2): Venture to Golden Waterfall, Jiufen Old Street and Ximending

What a great morning spent at Jinguashi (金瓜石) on day 2 of my Taiwan 8 Days Trip! What’s next? The second part of Day 2 would lead me to the less-visited North-Eastern Coastal area of Taiwan, the popular and bustling town of Jiufen and happening shopping district in Taipei – Ximending. Let’s begin. Golden Waterfall (黃金瀑布) (12.35pm) The first stop along the north-eastern coast was the “famous” Golden Waterfall (黃金瀑布). Almost all tourists would include it in their itinerary, …

Shinto Shrine

So many mini-attractions within Jinguashi Park in Taiwan (Day 2)

Day 2 of my Taiwan 8 Days Trip would be an interesting out-of-city venture to the northeastern mountainous region of Jinguashi (金瓜石) and Jiufen (九份). To get to these locations required a combined usage of railway train and public buses. Good luck to me, because I might get lost without WIFI Prepaid Card. Oh No…I’m Gonna Get Lost without WIFI Card!  (6.40am) Being highly dependent on Google Map and GPS, it was almost a necessity for me to have …
