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 …

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).

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 …
