Taiwan Day 2 (Part 2): 十分大瀑布 & Shilin Night Market
In continuation of Taiwan Day 2 (Part 1): 九份
Our loots for the morning (: We were really crazy 'cos we thought of taking all these with us to 十分!!
And mind you, we've walked a loooooong way to 十分瀑布!!!
YAY TO LOCKERS!! A kind lady from visitor info center told us that we can deposite our stuff here for NT50. And she told us that we shouldn't shop at 九份 first instead we should travel further and come back here later. She also introduced us this
We purchased our train tix over here at NT72 (price includes return tix)
We were quite confuses at first as the guy told us we need to purchase the tix but we notice that we are getting on a normal train and there's a machine for us to tap (using EZlink card)
So let me put it simple for you to understand, at 瑞芳 station theres a machine for you to tap in, however once you reach 十分 there's no machine to tap out!
You can scroll down to see how the "station" looks.
An open-air station!!! That's the reason why they don't allowed ez link card to be used here.
So after touring around the area, we make our way to 十分大瀑布.
It took us about 30 mins to walk? I guess it would be faster if we did not stop here and there for photos.
And also, we took a longer route by walking inside.
I did not know that we have to pay to get in -____- NT80 for a tix.
It was the first time i witnessed a waterfall, and I thought it would be magical. Hmm not sure how would I put it but it wasn't the same feeling.
The area was quiet, really peaceful. The only noise I heard was from the gushing waters.
No rainbows over the water just.... water. LOL
The end of our 十分大瀑布 trip.
We went back to rest and headed out to Shilin Night Market! The biggest night market in Taipei!
Taipei's train line is really easy to remember, by day 2 I can make my way through the stations alr.
To get to Shilin Night Market
Alight at "Jiantan" (劍潭) Station. The market is diagonally across the road, surrounding the Adidas building
Good food around Shilin Night Market!
They can even bring dogs to the night market!!! LOVE IT! Haha
Yup and till then. Taiwan Day 3 coming up!! Really need to rush them out before I leave SG next week.
