Taiwan – Trip to PingXi train line (1)

Hi there!!! It has been a while since I wrote on my blog as I have been busy and also was on the road.

My last recent trip was to Taiwan (yup again!) but this trip was much longer and I stayed over the weekend. This time I managed to visit 3 small outskirt towns away from Taipei where I had to take bus from where I was staying to Taipei then another 45 to 1 hr train ride to Ruifang to catch another train on the PingXi train line.

On the day I travelled, it was a wet and gloomy day. Had to wait under the rain with an umbrella to catch a bus.

This is the Taipei Central Station where the HSR, local trains and MRT converged. Colourful lockers at the station.

Upon arrival in Huotong, I was greeted by cats and lots of cats around. In fact there is a street or place for the cats there and you could see the visitors mostly local visitors from Taiwan feeding them…. and yes the cats are all well fed!! Lol
