Taiwan – Tainan; 2 Days Trip of History (1)

Welcome back!!

Yup. This is another series of my trip to Taiwan and this time, my visit will be Tainan. Took the opportunity to travel down south from Hsinchu to Tainan for the weekend break back in Apr early this year. Hope you will enjoy this series of posting as it will quite a long ‘e-trip’ journey here.

As usually, starting off from Hsinchu where I was at for my business trip.

This is a shot from my room view in the early morning before heading out to the Railway station.

It was a last minute planning and also a wrong time as it was also the Tomb Sweeping weekend where everyone was traveling in Taiwan. Getting the train ticket for the time I wanted was practically none.

So I had to grab what was available even if it took 4 1/2 hrs slow train where an express train would only take 2 1/2 hrs. (High speed train only took  an hr trip but of course, the cost was double of the normal express train cost)

Guess you have seen this before. This is the Hsinchu Railway station. A 15min’s walk from the hotel I stayed in.
