Taipei Trip 10Sept-15Sept 06 :Day 1
Finally i have the time to post up the photos! However, to be more organised, i think i am going to divide it to Day 1- Day5, easier for you guys to know my schedule in Taipei!
We flew with Singapore Airlines, so we gotta transit in Singapore. The flight ticket was RM1200 each, we got the tickets online from SIA's website.
Nice orchids display at Singapore Changi Airport
When we arrived at Taipei, we immediately look for taxi to send us to the hotel. However, upon enquiry, the taxi to town centre would costs NT1200, meaning around RM140, even though its pouring, we decided to take the airport bus, which will only costs about NT125 each, around RM15. Of course need to save more money on shopping what hehehe....The airport bus would only take us to TAipei Train Station, so from there we need to take a taxi to Xi Meng Ding, where we are staying. The taxi would only costs us around NT100, which is RM12. However, i did regret not taking the taxi from the airport earlier on as the rain was quite heavy when we get to Taipei Train Station and we had two big luggages with us, but luckily in the end none of us got sick because of the pouring rain! Phew....
The hotel we stayed in..the staffs there were very friendly and helpful, great location too! 5 mins walk to Xi Meng Ding LRT station
After we arrived at the hotel, we went for dinner nearby at Xi Men Ding. Went to this cafe selling pasta, turned out to be okay only but the tea they offered was great, especially after a long day.
After that we went walking around Xi Men Ding. Suddenly we saw this, the famous ah zong mian xian!
Theres no table and chairs provided, everyone have to stand there and eat...its soup is like hot & spicy soup you will get in UK..and the mian xian is really smooth...very yummy! Miss that....
After eating our supper, we went back to hotel , preparing ourselves for an early start tomorroW!
