Sorry about this I know I’m very late. Trying to clear my taiwan trip before my bali and japan trip but I think it’s quite impossible so let me show you my day 3 afternoon photos first!

After leaving our minsu from jiufen, we took a bus to Ruifang station.

First thing first we need to check in and put down our luggage and bags. So we trained all the way to Taipei Main Station to look for our hotel! I realized taiwanese are really good at talking, we got stopped by a taiwanese girl on the way to our hotel and all the while for 45minutes she’s trying to get us to buy beauty products from her. I didn’t get anything by the way.

Soon we arrived at our hotel for the night which is CityInn Hotel! Ours is at Taipei station Branch I.

No. 7, Huaining St, Zhongzheng District, Taipei City, Taiwan 100

Simon was looking for photography films, so we went to Hankou street to look for his films. This is the place where all the photographers come to get their stuffs?

I’m not sure if the films there are cheaper anot but after getting like 2boxes of the kodak portra films, we walked back and saw this cute uncle selling red bean pancakes 红豆饼!

While we were enjoying our pancakes, we saw this weird guy stretching his legs so I thought I should take a photo of him lol.

this is Simon’s favourite snack! It’s quite fun looking at them making the spring onion pancakes. I also love this snack because it’s fluffy and yummy!

After this we went to Taipei 101!

 photo DSC00572_zpsfw2aoa7h.jpg

mandatory shot! Initial plan was to go to starbucks at Taipei 101 but the security guard informed us that we need to have a reservation there. We wasn’t aware of this (didn’t research enough) and end up ordering a 滷肉飯 meal to share at the food court.

When you are in overseas, everything just taste better.
