There are many ways to go to Yangmingshan but all of them need to use bus ^_^ We use bus located just outside at Jiantan Station. If you’re unsure where it is, just go to the Tourist Information Centre, they will help you finding the right bus πŸ™‚ Yes, they will explain it in English (how I love this city hahaha…. πŸ˜€ ) Please come as early as possible as it can have long queue to get on the bus.

We encountered 2 line of queue when we got there around 9 AM, queue near the road side has more people than queue further from the road side. Apparently, the queue which is further from the road are for people willing to stand on the bus. More


First Day at Taipei and more Shopping!

Hoaaaahmmm… *Yawning* We had a peaceful sleep last night, seems everybody so exhausted from a long flight ^_^ We started the day a bit late since we will take easy on the first day.

MRT Station

MRT Station

Our first stop today is Mengjia Longshan Temple. Its only one stop from Ximen Station and our hotel only 5 min away from Ximen MRT station *Woah, its so convenient πŸ™‚ * To take trains, you will obviously need a ticket hehe… You can buy single journey ticket on machine or buy a Card. The ticket machine also easy to use as they provide English menu.

We bought Easy Card for our journey, it will cost you 100 TWD for the card and you can top up the card with as many value as you want. So, we put 500 TWD as the top up value and we can easily top up using machine or go directly toΒ the ticket counter. It’s more convenient to have the card and its cheaper also, they have certain discount if you take transportation using this card πŸ™‚ More

Jobless and New Trip

My New Trip just happened last month with two of my friends and we went to Taiwan. Yep… its Taiwan… Don’t ask me why we went to Taiwan… We just decided when we bought the ticket hehe… πŸ™‚

This time we used Airasia also, all of us started from Jakarta with a transit in Kuala Lumpur for couple of hour then continued to Taipei. We will be going back from Kaohsiung by the way. More

Hanging Temple – 14 Sep 2016


Jinjiang Inn Hotel

We check-out today to move to another city. I challenged myself to talk with the receptionist to buy a water. Well…as expected… he can’t speak English at all, so I just pointed to the water on the display and he speaks some Chinese to me and I just nodded without knowing what he means πŸ˜€

Figuring out the price also easy to do, as I just looked at the only number on the display haha… If they switch the label then I’m doomed…Thankfully, he understand me and gave me the water =_=; More

Datong – 13 Sep 2016

This morning, we started a bit late… We’re supposed to start at 8 AM but for some reason, we started at around 9 AM.


The Room

By the way, we stayed at Jinjiang Inn Datong Shenhua St Hotel. This hotel was almost like Ibis Budget style, the room was quite clean with standard bathroom even though one out of 6 rooms that I booked has a strong smell of cigarettes. The staff cannot speaks English at all and they have regulation that you need to notify them if you came more than 18.00 and notify here meaning you need to call them. This will be challenging for foreigner who can’t speak Chinese 😦 Thankfully, I have one aunty who can speak very well *fiuuuh…* πŸ˜€ More
