Taiwan (Western Part) – 9 days Free n Easy Journey; Day 2 (5)

Nice to have you back visiting my blog.  You are currently joining me on an e-travel trip to Taiwan back in late 2014. If you have missed out on my earlier write-up, do click here; Taiwan (Western Part) – 9 days Free n Easy Journey so that you can catch up with me. Ok?

Back to my e-travel. As mentioned, Tainan has lots and lots of temples to visit and see. Too many to see in a day or so. If you love temples, then this is the county that you must visit in Taiwan.

Below is another temple that we visited. It is located inside some small alley.  

They are really colourful…..

Walking further down, you can see old colonial buildings which are well kept or converted to museum or offices. Below is the National Musuem of Taiwan Literature (formerly the Office of Tainan Prefecture)

Inside the Taiwan Confucian Temple grounds, there is a large park for people to walk or take a stroll.

This is one of the inside of the building.

Was lucky to see an exhibition during that time where an organisation was putting a paper dears for Christmas on the Taiwan Confucian Temple grounds.

Aren’t they cute?

Not sure how many but for sure there were lots of them everywhere.

The entrance to Taiwan Confucian Temple grounds. Lots of people as it was evening and also a weekend too.

Directly across the entrance of Taiwan Confucian Temple grounds is an alley leading to a row of weekend street stalls where you can stroll and enjoy a light walk and also get your stomach filled. =)

Nice? If you like what you have read, then don’t stop. More to come. If you not followed me, then follow me so that you do not missed out on my next write-up on this e-travel series. It’s a 10 days travel and we are only on the 2nd day. So….. join me. =)

Cycling in the Bukit Cahaya Seri Alam – Botanical Garden

Went to the Botanical Garden again. This the 2nd time in 2 days. The day before, I was there to participate in the Skytrex Adventure where I did climbing and doing lots of flying fox up in the air, high wire crossing, doing tarzan swings; 26 thrilling challenges, all up to 17m above ground.

Today, I was there early to enjoy cycling in the park which cover over 1260 hectares. Even though I was early there, there was a lot of people earlier than me, and waiting for the gates to the park to be open. Reason, so they go in and quickly rent a bicycle to cycle as the shop inside only has a limited of up to 200 bicycles for rental.

It was a nice day to cycle as the night before it rain heavily and in the morning, it was cool and nice.

In the garden, there is also an orchard where you can find all sorts of tropical fruits where they have planted and taken care; rambutans, mangosteen, durians, starfruit, dragon fruit and lots more.
