First stop: Maokong

The weather that time was a perfect fit to go on another exciting tour!

The first thing to do is: BUY CARD! I have with me cards for both the cable car ride and the MRT.

When asked what’s the best place to visit, people would never forget to mention the famous Maokong. They say it’s one of the unique things to try in Taipei City and I couldn’t agree more! Why? I think it’s because Maokong Gondola’s scenic cable car ride is the bomb!

Walking our way to the entrance to wait in queue.

 

Maokong Gondola is a gondola lift transportation system that offers you to view the city on different perspectives. You will be able to fly and witness panoramas beyond your expectations that will definitely take your breath away. There are two types of cable cars: the normal cabin and the crystal cabin (glass-bottom cars). Of course, we chose the crystal cabins for better view!

Taipei, Taiwan Day 1 & 2

Dec. 17, 2016

Like Thailand, Cambodia and other Asian countries, Taiwan is the kind of country that you can always fall back to when you want culture, nature and food.

My family and I arrived 3:00 am in the morning at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport.

Yes, it’s indeed a family goal!

We spent the next few minutes queuing up at the immigration counter and as soon as we got out of the airport, a van picked us up and brought us to our hotel.

We actually stayed in Go Sleep Hotel-our home for the next 3 nights. I actually did search about the hotel when I knew where we were staying before the trip and found some undesirable pictures. However, because we were on a tight budget I just prayed that it wouldn’t completely disappoint us when we get there. Surprisingly, the place is good for a budget hotel. It has a great location, there are lots of shops and restaurants right outside and the Metro is just a short walk. We occupied 7 rooms and it was clean and spacious. I also loved the modern-look.

Day 1

Dec. 18, 2016

We had too little sleep that day since we were expected to be all ready and prepared around 8:00 in the morning. Good thing we were able to wake up early despite the 2-hour sleep. It’s okay, a little sacrifice won’t hurt.

There’s free breakfast in the lobby early in the morning and I must say they serve good food.  You can also avail their free drinks 24/7 whether it’s coffee, tea, juice or soft drinks. Just visit their lobby and go straight to their vending machines.
