Jiufen Old Street (九份老著), Tea travel!

Jiufen Village is located in Ruifang District of New Taipei City. It is famous for having lots of amazing street food and souvenir stalls, AND most especially their magical afternoon teas!

Aside from the very fact that Jiufen has the best teas in town, people still prefer to go in here for its vintage and cool ambiance which makes the perfect mood in drinking to that tasteful cup of teas.

Houli’s Zhong She Flower Farm

Zhong She Flower Farm or most commonly referred to as the Houli Flower Farm is another of Taichung’s precious destinations. It’s located in Sanfeng Road of Houli, Taichung City.

Unlike in Taipei, commuting in public means here is a little bit complicated. But don’t worry, there are already ongoing constructions in Taichung for MRT lines to make commuting more efficient like in Taipei. It will be soon opened.

For our trip, as we only have limited time exploring Taichung, we opt to rent a van for convenience. So as to not waste time finding places in our itinerary, it’s really convenient for us to get someone who already are familiar with the area.

Details of our Taichung itinerary will be soon posted on this link: Taiwan 4-day Itinerary

You have two options in entering this farm:

  1. TWD 120/ person – plain entrance fee to the farm
  2. TWD 320/ person – entrance to the farm + unlimited BBQ meal at their eatery

Since we haven’t had our lunch yet, we opt to avail the second option. Well, it can justify its price enough.

Here are some photos for share inside the flower farm:

Amazingly stunning views indeed!

Fengjia Night Market, Taichung’s Shopping Town

Fengjia Night Market or Fengjia Shopping Town as what it’s commonly known is the largest night market in Taiwan. It’s located in Xitun District of Taichung City.

Though it is called a “night market”, stalls here close at around 11:00 PM. This market is really big, you might need to visit it twice to fully explore the area.

This night market undeniably justifies its nickname to be a “shopping town”, as you can see there are lots of stores for shoes, clothes, and wants. And surprisingly, shoes here are very very very affordable, plus it’s tax-free!

 

Food

Oh! Surely, the best in Fengjia is its food!!! You cannot visit and leave this place without trying some of these food.

Xiaolongbao – As you can read from many other blogs, xiaolongbao in Taiwan is the best of all, we’ve proven it.

Street food – Definitely worth having hepatitis! But of course I’m kidding! Haha! Well kidding on the hepatitis part, but worthy street food is for real!

When you’re in here, it’s like you can never stop eating! That’s why you really should empty your stomach before going to Taiwan, as we know, it’s famously known for night markets, and night markets here will never ever fail to make you full! But, careful spending, you might find food in here surely expensive. Bring more than enough, it’s disappointing not to try their so many bests!
