Day Six in Taipei

Fri, Nov 30, 2012
Itinerary National Palace Museum (故宫博物院) Shilin Night Market (yes, again) Ximending (yes, again, too) Today is the last day of touring before we depart to the airport tomorrow. To be frank, we were a bit running out of ideas as to where to go for today. We were put off the hot spring baths due to the wet weather. We were pretty disillusioned with the night markets, and the wet weather didn’t make Yang Ming Shan (阳明山) National Park too appealing either.

Thu, Nov 29, 2012
Itinerary Jiufen (九份) Ruifang (瑞芳) Pingxi Railway Station (平溪火车站) Shopping at SOGO We had the kind guidance from the staff of the cafe opposite our hotel last night, where we had dinner, to the directions to our destinations for today. There are two ways in which we can get to the places – by train or by bus. We chose the bus route which can be most conveniently taken at Zhongxiao Fuxin (忠孝復兴) MRT station.

Day Three in Taipei

Tue, Nov 27, 2012
Itinerary Miramar Entertainment Park (美丽华百乐园) Wufenpu (五分埔) Raohe Night Market (绕河夜市) Taiwanese version of Big Breakfast It was MacDonald’s breakfast today before the touring. Our aim was to cover the Ferris wheel, the commerce district for wholesalers (read shopping heaven for girls) at Wufenpu (五分埔) and the Raohe Night Market (绕河夜市). This is quite economical in terms of time as they are all located on the east side of Bannan Line (板南线) of the MRT network.
