Taiwan (Western Part) – 9 days Free n Easy Journey; Day 1

Hi there!! Welcome to my next e-travel write-up. Sorry. this was a trip more than a year ago but it is never too late to share, right?

Yes, it’s Taiwan again but this time is more of a free and easy journey where my family and I took a 9 days trip to the western part of Taiwan from the south to the north passage.

Although it was free and easy, it took a few months of planning to ensure that my trip there was as smooth and as accommodating as possible. We took the transport the locals took and also stayed in hostels or 1 or 2 star hotels. Simple reason was most of the time we were on walking and exploring, and we just need a place to shower and sleeps. So, accommodation wasn’t our top priority.

Ok… let’s start our e-travel. The journey started from Kuala Lumpur KLIA2 and it was a direct flight to Tao-yuan International airport in Taiwan.

It was in fact my first time in this low cost carrier airport. I am quite impressed with the size and also the number of shops in here.  

Yup… what a trip to start off with a heavy storm heading our way. Flight was delayed as usual. This was taken from the skybridge connection main terminal building to the satellite building to catch the international flight.

M&M ‘attacking’  Petronas Twin Tower…….

After a 5 hours or so flight and with delay….. we finally touched down in Tao-yuan International Airport which was close to midnight.  Luckily we still could catch the public buses operating after midnight but very limited. Took the Kuo Kang bus at its stop point to head to Taipei city.

Cost? Well NTD125 per person. Journey took as around 1 hr++ and with stopping points in the city. So do plan where you want to get down. (especially after midnight)

Our stopped was near the Taipei Railway station and we had to walked about 30 min before getting to our hostel.

My supper after we checked in our hostel. Bought from Familymart. Taste good! Haha guess I was hungry.

Anyway.. that’s for today. Catch up with my next posting my this new e-travel series. If you have not followed me yet, pls do so by clicking on ‘follow me’
