[ SPONSORED TRIP ]
HELLO EVERYBODY! Are you all ready for my very first TAIWAN TRIP 2015? My family and I were full of excitement as we planned a solid 9 days free and easy trip to Taichung and Taipei.
We flew on JETSTAR from Singapore Changi Airport to Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport. The inflight meal tasted kind of horrible to me and the plane was a little shaky at times. =/
Seats wise were acceptable but the leg space was quite minimal.
As we had a morning flight, we managed to catch a good glimpse of the beautiful blue sky and white clouds!
The flight took about 4 hours 45 minutes.
We landed around 12pm which was quite early in the afternoon. I thought we could have the rest of the day to ourselves but nope, read on and you’ll find out the different modes of transport we took before we FINALLY reached our hotel at a freaking 6pm!
Can see our excited and extremely happy faces and smiles or not?! After our flight landed, we cleared the custom and took a 1 hour taxi 小黄 (TWD$1000) from Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport to HSR 高铁 Taipei Station.
We then collected our HSR 高铁 tickets from Taipei Station.
After that, we settled for a quick lunch at a food court nearby HSR 高铁 Taipei Station.
We took the 3.18pm HSR 高铁 from HSR 高铁 Taipei Station to HSR 高铁 Taichung Station which was about an hour ride.
Wefie before our HSR 高铁 experience~
The interior of the HSR 高铁 was very luxurious and comfortable and even alike to a plane setting.
Hehe, say cheese!
FINALLY ARRIVED AT HSR 高铁 TAICHUNG STATION AROUND 4.16pm.
After reaching HSR 高铁 Taichung Station, we walked to TRA 台铁 Xin Wu Ri Station and boarded the TRA 台铁 to TRA 台铁 Taichung Station which took us only around 10 minutes.
The TRA 台铁 ticket was so small lor.
The platform gap was pretty high and I thought it seemed a little on the dangerous side.
After we alighted at TRA 台铁 Taichung Station, we walked about 5 minutes to “53 hotel” and checked in and settled down. It was already about 6pm! Gosh, we took practically one whole day to finally reach our hotel lor. As it was raining, we took a 10 minute taxi 小黄 (TWD$100) from 53 hotel to Taichung Yi Zhong Street 台中市一中街.
Due to the rain, we had our dinner at NU PASTA which was in a sheltered area.
Pasta portion was quite alright and able to share.
The tomato pasta’s taste lost to the cheesy and fragrant one above!
After dinner, we just shopped around Taichung Yi Zhong Street 台中市一中街 and enjoyed the cooling weather under our umbrellas.
P.S. I also bought papaya milk and ate a baked potato with corn fillings. I bought stitch eye mask, stitch iphone 6 plus cover, stitch red tee, stitch carpet, two pairs of shoes, one dress, one romper and one shorts. WOOHOO I MANAGED TO DIG ALL THESE GOLD WITHIN AN HOUR! Thereafter, we took a taxi 小黄(TWD$100) from Taichung Yi Zhong Street 台中市一中街 back to our “53 hotel” to rest and bathe. I ended the awesome first night with macdonalds sesame ice cream. YUM YUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
GOOD NIGHT, MORE TO COME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
