First Day - Taipei Escapades

Sorry for MIA for almost a week. If you read my FB status, you know I was at Taiwan last week. Right after i touched down our BolehLand, Hubs was sick...then followed by the girl and the last victim was me.At this time, when you are reading this post, I am still in 'conk out mode'.

Despite of our busy schedules and different commitments, we just can't wait to get rid out from the hustle bustle city when there is one single chance to do so. We departed on 26th October 2011 which was a Deepavali Holiday at 5.45pm heading to Taipei.

This was one of the longest and farthest escapades I had with my besties...

We landed at Tao Yuan Airport about 10.30pm and we were transfered to the hotel for check in. FYI, we opted for a ground tour, therefore we don't need to worry on the itinerary considering three of us have 'half bucket water' knowledge on mandarin except bestie's husband.
*Hotel Lobby**

Our first night stayed at Zai Yan Leader Hotel.
ADDRESS:No. 39, Nanhua Street, Taoyuan City, Taoyuan.
Though the room is relatively small, but most important is clean and cozy enough for us to call it a night.

It was almost half past 11 upon checking in, but we don't want to call it a night till we have fed our tum tum..About 10 mins walking distance from the hotel, we found some night eateries.

Mix and Match.....


Stuffed pao....with pork and vege


Pan Fried Pork Bun @ RM1 each.

Last but not least, a bowl of of warm noodle.....That's where we call it a night.

The next morning, we woke up about 7am to prepare for our first day itinerary.. After our so called 'unsatisfied breakfast' at the hotel and while waiting for the tour guide to arrive, we took a walk along the street to see if we can get some better local delicacies.
**Sandwiches**

We opted for Pan Fried Carrot Cake.....

Fragrant Pan Fried Carrot Cake is ready......

Noticed the eggs here are white in colour....

If you still remember, I mentioned in my previous post here to guess where I will be going for my holiday...After checking out the answers, no one guess the correct answer....No sweat as I already brought back some souvenirs.....hehheheh. So, do check out my blog from time to time to grab the souvenir **hint**hint**...

  10. My friend went to Taiwan last week too... Came home and posted photo of piansip (some local thing like wantan) on her Facebook wall and captioned it. "Home food is still the best!" I guess going there, like coming here or anywhere else, you need people who know where you can get the best in town...or you'll be shortchanged.

    Humph!!! Can go Taiwan...wouldn't come to Sibu! Tsk! Tsk!

    1. Hi...

      Thanks for the compliments. That's good to hear that soon you will be having a great vacation in Taiwan. Bet you will have a great time there. If not mistaken we booked our ground tour through Apple Holiday. That time they were having a promo and add up with some other fees which came up to RM700++. It was a 5D4N ground tour.
