I’ll be blogging about my Taiwan diary since it’s easier this way. I hope you enjoy taking a look at some cool places and the rest of the series.
Taiwan Day 1
Ready to leave Manila!
Taiwan crew. Traveled with my church family. Beautiful airport right?
Bus to Taiwan High Speed Rail or Taoyuan Bullet Train Station. I think you can book your ticket here to save time.
Hi-Cafe is like their version of our Ministop here. They have lots of delicious food there and you can see a lot of branches around Taipei.
MRT to our first night market experience – Shilin!
Commuting here is so easy and convenient. It can be a little crowded at some parts, but it’s always nice to see everyone follow simple rules like: lining up so passengers can easily go down and ride the train, safety railings as you can see here, and acknowledging the color coded seats specifically for disabled/pregnant/elderly people. What makes their MRT system even more convenient is the MRT card, which is the same card you use for public bikes!
I don’t really like strawberries but these syrup-coated strawberries are really yummy!
Shilin doesn’t just sell food. They also sell clothing, shoes, bags and so much more!
STINKY TOFU. Alain loves this but… I can’t stand the smell! Haha!
My favorite Sausage!! A must try!
We ate dinner at a small restaurant in Shilin.
The coldest months are from January to March with the lowest temperature to about 10C (50F). In some rare cases, there will be frost or snow on the high mountain. The hottest months are from June to August with the highest temperature up to around 38C (100F). The average temperature of the rest months is around 25C (77F). ( Via: travelchinaguide.com)
Before wrapping up the night we decided to buy some midnight snacks.
Can I just say that I love Taiwan 7-11? I miss all of these snacks… These are some of our favorites! We went to 7-11 regularly. Every.single.day. Haha!
After that we decided to rest to save some energy for the next day.
