Taiwan Trip Day 1 乱剪+ 公馆夜市+ 师大夜市

Taiwan Trip Day 1

I had been to Taiwan a few times but i was never bored of it. It is a place of the nice people (most), good shopping and food paradise. A place where you can find convenient store everywhere which sells really economical toiletries (unlike Singapore 7-11 which only the rich walks in, not convenient at all) and wide range of KTV at a much affordable rate. And best of all, the temperature in Taiwan was cold in January! When we were there, the temperature was like 13 ~16 degree? Kinda good for us who had summer 24/7 whole year round. 

The reason we were back to Taiwan was simple: To reward to my brother who had completed his "O" Levels. He had definitely worked hard during his school days and when i asked him where he wanted to go for holiday, he answered : Taiwan. It didn't take him that long to answer my question. He must be dying to go there. 

Day 1 was easy as we did not have much sleep in the morning cos we need to catch our plane at 7+am. After landed, we took a bus from B1 to Taoyuan HSR. We know the route pretty well so getting around Taiwan wasn't much of a problem to us. 

My Bro and Xiong. 

Purchasing the bus ticket to TaoYuan HSR from the counter. It cost about NT30 per ticket but you can use 悠悠卡 also.

3 tired faces. Took this photo to tell my family that we had landed safely.

After 20 minutes of ride, we reached the station. The first thing to do was to buy tickets to Taipei ( checked in to our room 1st) and the next, walk to the convenient store to buy food. That is the problem for taking no frills air plane, you have to starve all during the ride ( But all's worth isn't it? )

Looks good right?

When we reach Taipei HSR, we walked towards the metro station, pulling our luggage along. Taipei Main Station (MRT) is so huge that one can be lost inside the station. Make sure you follow the signs indicated on the walls and ou won't be lost! Our accommodation was at 西门町, and 西门 is one stop away from Taipei Main Station. 

When we were there, we look for the lady who told us to meet at Chengdu Road. She would bring us to our room. And our room just look like the photo we saw on internet.

And Xiong will usually jump onto the bed with the remote on his hand . And my brother?

Went to mark his territory on the upper deck. 

They have chair as well on the upper deck,
The room is indeed comfortable for the three of us as each of us had our own personal space. If you are interested in staying in this room during your holiday, you may want to visit this website: 24htaipei . The location is great as it is located just beside 星聚点KTV and 5 minutes walk from 西门station.

The every next thing to do after check in was to look for food around the area, And, we must bring my brother to this very famous 阿中面線。 

 After filling our stomach, we went for a haircut at Luan Jian Hair Salon nearby. My brother need a serious haircut. It has been few months since he had his hair cut. If you know Ximending well, there are many salon there, with a few of the same names. However, according to one of the staff, she mentioned that all the branches belong to different bosses.

We went for the promotion. It includes, cut, wash, hair styling which cost us about NT450. The service is really good. My hair stylist is very young and pretty. She was so young that i doubted her skills. But my hair turns out looking alright so I did not complain much. It was SGD20++ in total for 1 person. If you are going for such services in Singapore, it could easily cost you up to $50 or more. 

Any difference in our hair?

Looking good

After the grooming session, we took the Metro down to 公馆 station. We were supposed to go to 公馆 Night Market, but when we were there, we couldn't find the night market. Accordingly to the local, he said that 公馆 night market is not very active on weekday. 

While walking around, we saw a lint of queue not afar. Went over to queue and realize everyone was queuing for pancakes. 

The night market was located near to the station.

Opps a bit blur.  Turns out that the pancake was overrated. I guess it was cheap so everyone was queuing for it. 

Giving up, we took a station down to Taipower Building Station, and tour around 师大夜市.

There are quite a number of food at 师大. We had 阿诺 Crepe, Thai Chicken and more chicken etc.

Can't miss my 盐酥鸡

Must Eat!! Its very nice!

阿诺Crepe has expanded to a shop on its own.

After filling our stomach, we went back to our hostel, preparing for our next day activities.
