Hi friends! Finally here to update about our first girlfriends overseas trip! Been planning for it since forever and we did it! 😀
Read our summary here: Taipei, Taiwan 2015 summary
25th August 2015
Our morning flight via Tigerair!
Took the Kuo-Kuang bus which was supposed to bring us to Xi Men Ding. But we reached a stop where everyone was supposed to alight, and those going to XMD would need to wait for another bus. So wait we did. For super long! 😦
Finally reached XMD and walked to City Inn Hotel (my fav hotel in Taipei).
CityInn Hotel Plus Ximending Branch
No.63, Baoqing Rd., Zhongzheng Dist., Taipei City 100, Taiwan
First stop – dinner at Ya Rou Bian (鸭肉扁).
108, Taiwan, Taipei City, Wanhua District, Section 1, Zhonghua Road, 98之2號
Directions from hotel:
Head northwest on 寶慶路 toward 衡陽路
Continue onto 衡陽路
Turn right onto 中華路一段
Destination on left
And the 3 other food pictures are random street food we chanced upon. Taipei is littered with food stalls wherever you go. So don’t be afraid to try. Just make sure you have indigestion pills/ charcoal pills. 😛
Walked around Shi Da Night Market and went into this random shop. The food wasn’t good though. Please just eat the street stalls at the night market.
We ordered braised pork rice (NT30) and oyster omelette (NT70). Both were disappointing.
Back to the hotel and the treasurer’s gotta do what she’s gotta do! We like to keep a group fund for common expenses (food and transport). At the start of each day, everyone will pass me a fixed amount (say S$50) and balance will be brought forward to the next day. At the end of the trip we’d split the balance. It works conveniently for us and I don’t mind the added responsibility of being treasurer. Heh.
That’s all for day 1. Be back with day 2 soon! 🙂
