Taiwan trip 2019

DAY 1:

This is my 1st time to Taiwan. Super excited. We took the flight from Penang to Hong Kong via Cathay pacific (about 4 hours), and from Hong Kong to Taiwan (about 2 hours). We went to airport at 5am, and reach Taiwan around 4pm.

Upon arrival at Taiwan, we were pick up by our Taiwan tour guide. The bus took us to National Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall. Location: https://goo.gl/maps/BCUkaxrEzpH2. Because this place open from 9am-6pm, when we arrive, it was about 5.30pm. So we just took some photos and leave the place.

Now it is time for some food hunt. We were brought to Raohe St. night market. Location: https://goo.gl/maps/tAD67fvMamz. Before we head to the night market, we walk around the temple next to the night market for toilet. So much to eat here and we just bought what ever we can and eat.

DAY 2:

After 2 hours walk, we back to hotel and check-in. Next day, we went to Yehliu Geopark. Location: https://goo.gl/maps/CddPtzqtZyM2. Here you can enjoy the beautiful seascape.

After heavy lunch, we proceed to Jiufen Old Street. Location: https://goo.gl/maps/c76HxKZNsWJ2. Here were so crowded, full of people too. But it is unique place and lots of tourist too. You can find literally any food and any souvenir here.

After tiring 3 hours walk here, we go for a stop at an old train station which is also a wood factory for a quick photo. The place call Luodong Forestry Culture Park. Location: https://goo.gl/maps/Gug5BqQZFL62.

Follow by a night street food.

Then we take the tour bus for hours and reach Haokesanshing hotel. This place located near the farm and paddy field.

DAY 3:

It is day 3 and we already started to feel exhausted. We wake up very early for sightseeing at the paddy field outside the hotel. Location: https://goo.gl/maps/YKdpBVx1JmB2.

Then we have to take 2 hours bus ride to a tour at Jimmy Park and Yilan Station. Location: https://goo.gl/maps/eRRxj67d1Tv.

Then we head back to hotel to check-in after dinner. But then we walk all the way to Miyahara ice cream. Location: https://goo.gl/maps/if2ZHqiezuy. Exactly opposite the shop there is this nice river where you can sit there and enjoy the ice-cream.

DAY 4:

The next morning we take the bus to a place for the Taiwan Orchid exhibition. Location: https://goo.gl/maps/QCrXi4pgBbB2. There are horse show and a lots of stuff to see there.

After that we head to hotel name flower castle. Eat and sleep there for 1 night.

DAY 5: 

After breakfast we head to old train station name Shengxing station. Location: https://goo.gl/maps/G4NxpnXE1b12. A good place for photograph as this place still have traditional old house.

Then we go to the Taiwan Hakka museum. https://goo.gl/maps/snFgceVV7R22.

After lunch at a Hakka restaurant, we head to Shin Kong Mitsukoshi at Songren Road, Xinyi District. Here we can see the Taipei 101. Then the rest of the trip I'm quite blur and all I realize is shop and eat. We did stop by at the Eslite Xinyi Store. Location: https://goo.gl/maps/dNMNvBe2fQn. Around 2 hours later, we were brought to a local souvenir store name Vigor Kobo to bought some souvenir.

Then we head to Amba Taipei Hotel. Location: https://goo.gl/maps/rRSVW5E8nJF2. This hotel located at the center of Ximending. One of the most happening shopping heaven here. It just like Korea Myeongdong.

DAY 6:

I lost track of where we actually went to. All I know is I'm on the bus, go somewhere, come down, take photo then go eat and eat.

National Revolutionary Martyrs' Shrine. Location: https://goo.gl/maps/XfovgXtmBmH2.

Then we go to Shitoushan Park, Jinshan old street. https://goo.gl/maps/tfKDM8xMESC2 for shopping.
Lover bridge. Location: https://goo.gl/maps/tom89AHwWfr.

Lastly we went to Huanhe Road, Tamsui District. Location: https://goo.gl/maps/WaWSUohH7sP2.
This place is crazy pack with people and lots of stuff to shop too. Gifts, sourvenir, food and also a nice park next to the seaside. 

After the shopping, we were brought to a dinner at one of the most not delicious restaurant ever. Then we back to Ximending. Spend the rest of the night shopping around Ximending to get some last minute souvenir.

DAY 7:

It is the day we head to airport at 5AM as our flight from Taiwan to Hong Kong at 8AM. So the whole day was so blur and tired, didn't capture any photo. Worst part is we have to wait like 4 hours at Hong Kong airport for transfer and after we board the plane, some one out of sudden not feeling well. Again! Seriously!. The person is an old lady age around 60+. Not sure what is the problem with her but a guy who looks 40+ which probably his son (or maybe husband), sitting next to her. Refuse to off board the damn plane and want to wait for the condition to be better. After like 1 hour, things doesn't go well yet and I saw the stewardess persuade the man. I don't know what they said but finally they off board the plane. The stewardess help to look for the luggage and also baggage. I heard the pilot mention they were handling some paper documents stuff. For god sake, just don't take the plane if not feeling well. Consider other people as well. The old person might die in the plane. The whole trip was good until that delay of 2 hours.

A video highlights of the trip.
