Taiwan Trip 2011 - Wrap Up & Beyond (九份|乌来|台北)

Travel Photography by Chiat Hau Photography (九份|乌来|台北)

Seriously, The longer I stayed at Taiwan, I have not sure where I have been to (Sound terrible right :"P). Guess I can only remember the significant places that I have dropped by. other than the town area that we walk around, the train station that we hoop on and off (I think the significant places name that I could remember now is the 中正纪念馆), I think 九份 have been another interesting places that we went to. We didn't know that usually it has been a one day visit places for most of the people. (And eventually we have book a hostel and stayed overnight there).

More photos after the jump...

九份give me a pretty spooky feeling somehow. Probably due to it's geographical structure? the old houses? and not to mentioned that there are quite a lot of cemetery that looks exactly just like houses :"P. And the shop close quite early at the 老街 (Around 7pm), which quite surprise me as well. Anyway, a day there is still not that bad. At least I still have TV there after an early return to the hostel. :)

Anyway, we headed out from 九份 (where the day started with some drizzling rain and it make it so hard for us to move around in the old street there). I has been pretty wet when I am on the bus. :"P We headed out to 乌来 get ourself refresh and then going out for a quick walk on that street. :) Not a very long street though, but it is a very nice and relaxing street there where most of the people come here for onsen. And oh yeah, there is a waterfall on the mountain as well, where you will need to get a ticket for a special little train ride there. We also visited the 猫空 for a quick cable ride as well. :"D And lastly spending our New Year in Taiwan has been a very special experience for us, so in stead of watching the performance on the TV, now I am watching it live and experiencing the magnificent fireworks of the Tower 101 just right in front of me! :"D (But I didn't brought any camera gears that night, a lot of Taiwan shop owner is advising me to be as light as possible during that night). So I just brought myself there that night. qx"D But standing for straight 5 hours is a pain in the a$$. (Guess all these is not meant for old uncle now). :"P Glad that I can experienced it once before I am really TOO old to do so. x"D

Anyway, we finalized the whole trip by revisiting some of the same location, and food for the final time before we say good bye to Taiwan. :) Anyway It has been a great trip, a very relaxing one in deed. Love Taiwan very much and I would recommend people to go there. :) (And remember not to miss out all the delicious local night market foods). Alright then, I am glad that I can official close this series up and continue with other series that I have on hand (I know this is a long series - 17 days trip has been a very tedious. I bet the longest one that I have done so far. But thanks to you all for your patient and viewing of it, I hope that you all have enjoy it so far). Have a great evening everyone as well as the weekend that is coming up really soon. Signing off... ;)
