Taiwan Winter Trip #4 - Jiufen

I must say our whole journey was truly blessed with wonderful. Thank you, the sky of Taiwan for being mercy on Journey us.
Journey on Freeway a.k.a Highway In Taiwan, we learned that there are ordinary roads, express way (lots of time on elevated roads), & freeways (highways). All the roads are interconnected to other districts & provinces. Really convenient.

Look at these gorgeous, colourful flowers!
Jiufen Tea Museum. Simple & sophisticated. 
I absolutely love the creative artists who furnished the interior decor of the museum mostly reclaimed wood.  Aren't they beautiful? Such great appreciation to the construction materials.

Taiwan Winter Trip #2

From Taoyuan International Airport, we arranged pick-up by our host ChenTai Homestay. We checked-in to (ChenTai) Mrs. Chen's Homestay almost around noon.After settling down with our luggages, Lily, sister of Mrs. Chen taught us our 1st lesson - How to travel by the metro. The tip as which platform to hop on to is to always refer to the last station.. 
Finally the evening came.. From Wufenpu, we walked about 1km to Raohe nighmarket for dinner & look see

It's a happening place at night
Our dinner:  Braised pork with rice + herbal lamb soup  for a chill evening. Not bad..
