Taiwan Travelogue, Taipei Day 6

[25th September 2013]

YAY! It's day 5 now! It feels kinda sad that my travelogue is coming to an end. :(((

SO ANYWAYS
For the itinerary today, we're going to Xin Bei Tou (北投) for HOT SPRINGS!!! Then after that, we'll head to Dan Shui (淡水) to have a magnificent view at Yu Ren Ma Tou (渔人码头) We had breakfast somewhere near the exit 6 of the metro stations. (Can't really remember the restaurant name). Ordered a set meal. The thing that I love about Taiwan restaurants is that everything comes in a set, and you don't have to worry about what to drink or so because everything is THERE for you. :D

We had Carbonara and Chicken Cutlet rice. Not too bad, but I feel as though we're having HEAVY breakfasts almost every single day. LOLOL!

Reached Bei Tou station, and had to go to another platform to make a change in our trains in order for us to get to Xin Bei Tou station.

NICE WEATHER! PERFECT FOR HOT SPRING-ING~
Noelle told me that she came on her first day and it was raining, so yea! I guess I was lucky! Teehee~

Initially we didn't know where the hot springs were located and we just continued walking to the Bei Tou Thermal Valley. Well, we did get quite a view of the hot springs! :D

Didn't manage to go to the hot springs, because something happened. AHHH! Long story!

ANYWAYS!
If you guys are interested, there is this outdoor (Public) and indoor (Private) hot springs! Public is $2 SGD and Private is like $70 SGD?!!!

AFTER WHICH
We went to Dan Shui Old Street, to shop and also to WALK all the way to Yu Ren Ma Tou, YES YOU HEARD ME RIGHT! WALK! WE WALKED ALL THE WAY THERE!!!

I didn't know we could take transport there though, but it was definitely an experience! If I'm not wrong, we walked more than 20km!!! Hahaha!

AND WALK!
AND WE FINALLY REACHED! IT WAS ALL WORTH IT!!! TRUST ME!

The sense of achievement for walking such a long distance and seeing such magnificent view is definitely worth it and better than taking transport over there!

Before coming to Taiwan, I was looking through blogs and finding interesting places to go to, and I came across Vivian's blog on Yu Ren Ma Tou, and there's this photo of her taken at this Starbucks. At that point of time I told myself, "I MUST COME HERE! IF NOT I WILL DIE WITH REGRETS"!!!

AND HERE I AM! YAY!!!

Took a bus back to Dan Shui Bus Station, and took the metro back. That somehow sums up my Day 6 in Taiwan!
