Day 2 in Taiwan

18 July 2014

Woke up at 7:30am to have breakfast which had not much selection.

With the help of our hired driver Jason, we went to fetch YJ from Taichung HSR station.

It was a really scenic journey to get to Cinjing and the weather began to feel cold as we travel uphill.

We went to Sun Moon Lake but only 4 of us went on the island hopping.

The first island we landed sold the famous Ah Ma's Tea Leaf Egg. I think it's over-rated and not even close to Family Mart's.

The next island we landed had shops selling souvenirs and food. And yes, I had tea leaf egg from family mart again.

Headed back to the harbour where we came from to meet HM and SF.

We continued to go uphill to go Wen Wu Temple. This is where my camera's battery died on me.

We bought chopsticks from the store in the temple as souvenirs.

Next stop is the Cingjing farm where we were so close to nature and sheep. And yes, there's admission fee.

Next stop was the Swiss Garden where we freeze ourselves in the cold mist to take pictures of flowers and windmill.

Finally, we could check-in at Starry Minsu to unpack our luggage. The 6 of us shared a room and toilet. They provide warmers just below the pillows but we didn't use. We did not open any windows or the gate so it was pretty stuffy.

Time for steamboat dinner which is included for all. As you can see, mostly are vegetables. The soup base was a little sour, not so much to my liking for steamboat.

We spent the rest of the night watching TV programmes and HTHT before lights out.
