TAIWAN FEB'15 : 十份放天灯, 九份老街

Saturday, March 21, 2015

I am aiming to clear my Taiwan trip entries by this week. So do stay tuned as I will be probably be posting more than one entry a day (: Day four of Taiwan was photoshoot day and it will be in a separate individual post. Do check out the hashtags #JSxHSwedding for posts strictly related to my entire wedding process. I have actually talked abit about my wedding shoot (HERE) so I may not be doing another post on it. I will see how things goes (:

On the day after our wedding shoot, we visited Shi Fen 十份 and Jiu Fen 九份. Don't be deceived by the name as the difference is only one 份 but the distance between the two of them is faaaaaarrrrrrr. It is at least three mountains away. Shi Fen is one of the more touristy places where you should go to if you are visiting Taiwan. But do take note you cannot get to these two places via the MRT. You gotta take the train and I personally feel that it is a wee bit time consuming as the journey in between stations is really long so do dedicate more travelling time if you are heading there. Anyways, Shi Fen Old Street 十分老街 is a place where you can release colourful paper sky lantern, on which you write your wishes on and then send it off into the skies for good luck.

This part of the country is pretty different from the urban Taipei main city. Shi Fen is quite a bit of distance away from Taipei main city, it took us approximately 2 hours to travel to Shi Fen from our hotel in Shuang Lian.

May all our wishes come true (: I hate how I always look like auntie whenever I travel. I also want to look chic leh ! Taipei Main Station actually does have cabs that travels up to JiuFen for a flat rate of NTD 180.00.
Same thing for JiuFen back down to TPE Main Station

I think some of you guys might be angry already cause it is all photos with no words and descriptions. I always find it hard to document my travelogues and travel thoughts in words after I return to Singapore. But if you have any questions for me, please feel free to drop me a comment below or buzz me at my Ask.Fm. I will also be editing/updating past entries whenever I got the feel or whenever I recall something that I had missed out.

On a side note, I am looking for Web Designers to work on a new layout for this space. If there is any kind souls who is willing to sponsor me (Yes IKR why so thick skin haha), please buzz me !!
