Following my previous post on how to get to Hehuanshan from Taipei. In this post, we are going to cover on how to return to Taipei city the next day after a stay at the mountain lodge in Hehuanshan, SongXueLo.

When we arrived the day before, the bus driver will ask who will be heading back the next day before everyone alight, and he will inform you the pickup time. Please do wait at the pickup point earlier than what the time he advised.

[Move] Taiwan – Transportation to HeHuanShan

Hehuanshan is a place where I wanted to explore but the transportation is not convenient if we do not drive. In addition, your driving skill has to be good because of the winding road up the mountain road.

Getting up there from Taipei is not near and it is time-consuming but if you love nature, hiking or wish to have a break from the bustling city this would be a good choice. As there are not much information in English about how to get there by public transport yet, thus this will be a detailed transportation guide from Taipei to Hehuanshan.

[Eat] Taiwan, Taipei- iNPUT Music Cafè 音鋪

  • Post Comments:0 Comments

A hidden gem found in the alley near the busy Tong Hua Street. Not sure if you all know about this place? It is well known among the fans of Taiwanese band, Mayday. This store is opened by one of the members, Stone with his 2 other friends who are musicians.

It is a music store to be exact, however, they have a little cafe area for coffee lovers. As I am not a musician nor have any knowledge of musical instruments, I will not cover about that section. Therefore, this post will focus on the café.

[Eat] Taiwan – Rilakkuma Cafe (拉拉熊咖啡廳) in Taipei

  • Post Comments:0 Comments

I have to admit that I am a crazy fangirl for Rilakkuma and love it so much that I will always buy its stuff and collect them. It is always on my to-do list to visit the café in Japan, however, they only do a pop-up store for Rilakkuma café, which means, they will be in certain parts of Japan for a period of time and move on to another location.

When the news of Rilakkuma café was opened in Taiwan, I have been planning to visit the cafe to have a cup of coffee and meal there. Without any hesitation this time, I kept a day free in my itinerary and made my reservation online.

Planning to celebrate a year-end countdown in Taiwan? We will only think of the big concert at the city hall and see the fireworks up close. However, have you think of looking at the fireworks from Taipei 101 in a different view and away from the crowd? Why not head down to MaoKong, a quieter place to have the view of the Taipei 101 fireworks.

As Maokong is not at the city center, it can be quite confusing for the first timer who wish to visit the place. This post would serve as a transportation guide of how to get to MaoKong from Taipei City.

[Eat] Taiwan, Taipei- Top One Pot Hotpot Restaurant Fuzhong Branch

  • Post Comments:0 Comments

We tried the Wu Lao Guo during our previous visit to Taiwan. This time round, our Taiwanese friend introduced this famous hot pot restaurant, Top one pot, in Taiwan. This is ranked top 3, within 2 years of its operation. Currently, its review from the local was excellent and some even said that it is better than Wu Lao Guo. However, it is up to the individual preference and for service wise,  after serving the customers, the service staffs at Top One Pot are not required to bow 90 degree, unlike Ding Wang or Wu Lao Guo whereby this action might cause some customer to feel uneasy.
