Taipei for Holiday!
Went for a 4D3N Taipei trip with mummy & bf... finally 10 days of annual leave for me! Been working the entire 9 months in 2012 without any annual leave..and I'm clearing all my 30+days of leaves in this year. Lol
I will stay budget if I am going for a holiday hehe so I took scoot over to Taipei.. The airtix was relatively cheap, it cost about $370 per person including checkin! Took Freego bus from the airport & alighted at Zhong Xiao Fuxing Station > trained down to Ximending where our hotel is.
The bus shld alight us at Taipei main station but we touched down too early so they only can alight us at Zhong Xiao Fu Xing. (only few stops away from Taipei main station)
Hotel room cost $115 per night for 3 of us, 2 queen and 1 single bed. Booked 'Go sleep' Hotel, which is 7mins away from the train station.
The room was very pleasant n nice but the location is very hard to find :-(
Touched down too early so we went for breakfast...Had bkfast twice-_-
All the shops were closed..
Bus ride was about 45mins..we stood for 45mins because the bus was too crowded :(
hehe all our sleepy faces.
Kitty sweets!! All the cakes are sooooo cute^^
Had milk tea EVERYDAY. Very sinful.....a very sinful trip. Had quite a number of street foods too.
The busy ximending.
Went Shida Night market that night.. We took train to Tai power building & walked over. It was quite near and there were many students shopping over there. More for shopping over at this market. Didnt really buy anything though.
Went Mr J on the second day! Please remb to reserve a seat if u would like to visit there.
We went to the one in Taipei medical university. Took cab over to Mr J.
Not much crowd in the restaurant during lunch time.
Mummy had bacon pasta, bf had ribeye steak while I had tuna pizza!
Me & my single portion pizza, which cost only $9plus for the set lunch..including a soup & a drink! Soooo cheap!
And a tiramisu cake. hehe The food was not too bad..but not as bad as what I heard from other reviewers.
Love the restaurant because it plays jay chou's music throughout!!
The medical university..
Walked over to Taipei 101.. Bought hu jiao bing while on the way to taipei 101. Love eating it! Yums. not a fan of pork but it doesnt have the porky smell!
Too windy & cold.. haha
Went shilin night market that night..
I prefer shilin more than shida or raohe night market!!! Only explored 3 night markets..so I cant compare with the rest.
Nxt day went to wufenpu & Rao he Night market.. Raohe night market sells more of causal or adult clothings, not for us.. but their famous Hu Jiao Bing is so yummy!!
Had shaved mango ice at Cha Cha Mango @ Ximending .
I enjoyed this trip with them although I didnt shop a lot which was quite disappointing. But I wanna go there again!!!!!!!!! hehe
