Taiwan – Trip to PingXi train line (3)

Welcome back! We are still in Huotong. Walking along a small street and a gloomy day with a magnificent view of the mountains.


A temple along the street which I managed to capture.


Heading back to the Huotong station, I had to cross a covered pedestrian bridge to get over the other side of the track. In the covered pedestrian bridge, you could see people feeding cats and cartoon cat size stand.


Another beautiful view of the mountains from the other side of the tracks.


A lazy cat sleeping on the souvenir items while visitors taking photos of it.


…… my next stop was Shifen


This small town is really interesting. Do follow me on my next blog. 😊

Taiwan – Trip to PingXi train line (2)

Still in Huotong. It is a small town formerly a mining town but now is a cat town; a town filled with cats.

Below is a row of food souvenir shops which were next to the railway station. The food looks good but I did not stop to grab anything.


.. a miniature display of the old mining area of Houtong.


The ruins of the coal processing plant and the bridge used to carry the coal down from the mine in the nearby hillsides.


Cat homes which can be seen all around the town for the cats.


On the bridge where the railway track to the hillside.


This is one of the old mines which was closed and made to a tourist area.



More to come. Stay tune!
