Finally. This is the last posting for this series on my trip to Tainan for the weekend. Hope you have enjoyed following me on this ‘e-trip’ .
Before ending the trip or heading back to Hsinchu, I had to walk back to the hostel. Walked through Tainan Train Station. It is one of the historic site. Opened back in the 1900 and it expanded since then.
Walking along the walkway to the hostel. You could see lots of scooters parked on both sides. Yup as it is near the famous university, National Cheng Kung University which was established in 1931. It’s nickname is Koxinga University.
Got my stuff nad headed to the train station to catch my train and then THSR (Taiwan High speed Rail) to Hsinchu.
My ticket from Tainan station to Shalun station to catch my bullet train. =)
Here comes the train.
THSR ticket to Hsinchu.
Orange bullet train.
This was the speed it was going at some point but I think it was still not the maximum. The max I have seen was 300km/hr.
Ok. that’s it for this series. Hope you enjoyed. Want to know where the next place I will be writing? If yes, then click ‘Follow me’ if you haven’t and stay tune. =)
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.
Taipei ticket counter. .
Arrived at Ruifang station to change line to the PingXi line to Houtong for my first stop
… and this is the colourful train on the PingXi line to my first stop.
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
Where shall I go?
Well if you like to know … then follow me on my next posting. 😊
