Jiu Fen, Taiwan
After Sun Moon Lake, we take a direct bus down to Taipei. However, to reach Jiu Fen it is a complicated journey. We have to take 2 different bus to reach Jiu Fen. After 1 bus trip, we decided to get cab to reach our home-stay because it is raining and we have so many luggage with us. The whole journey took us about 2 hours in total.
One thing that you will see once you reach is temple. It is like everywhere. Everywhere I turn, I will see one stood still above the hill. Besides, I am wondering how could they build house up the hill. From far, the houses were like stair case.
We are really lucky. We get to pick the most beautiful home-stay with the most excellent view of all. Let me prove to you my word!!
View from our window. A painting come to life isn't it? Where could you find such fascinating scenery at Malaysia?
Once settle down, we are ready for our next adventurous journey. Light snack before we start. The "yu yuan" made of yam but come with sweet potato too. Cold and hot to fulfill different customer preferences.
View that we get to see along the way up to the Jiu Fen Old Street. The only way we get to go up is take a long stairs. Sort of take our breathe away because we did not expect the stairs to be that long way up.
Breathe taking view ain't it?
Finally we reach after about 20 minutes? We kinda used to it after several times climbing up and down. As soon as we reached, we had already see stalls all around. Makan time!!!
This stall is one out of so many of them here that had been interview by Taiwan Entertainment show. Their food were great, especially the soup and vermicelli noodles. Personal liking!
BBQ Mushroom. One of our favorite at every night markets. Even they BBQ it, the mushroom is still juicy and delicious.
Jiu Fen Old Street is all connected by stairs. There's still main road for vehicles, but narrow and small.
As the sky turns dark, the scenery gets more attracting. We decided to turn home and get back here again at night. However, something unexpected happen......
...we see shoplots and stalls were all closed down. The street were silence. We can even hear cricket sound. Meaning no food for us.
There's still some restaurant open but way too expensive. Mostly tourist with tour agent dining in there. Lots of Japanese and Korean around.
See how sad we are. They usually open at 7.30 or 8.00 am in the morning and close at 5.oopm or 6.30 p.m the latest. Luckily we did found a restaurant which offer reasonable price, or else we will end up at 7-eleven stores again.
Wonder where we went dine in? Will intro on my next post because I love that restaurant very much...... Stay tuned!!!
