Came back from my china trip early of the month and it’s time to update a little about that. This is such a beautiful trip with very scenic places and it almost killed my memory card. Super love this place but then not some of the cultures in China (you sure know).

There are a lot to eat at Jiufen Old Street (or Ji Shan Jie 基山街) but most of them close at around 6 – 7pm. Hence, we took a stroll along Shùqí Road to check out what’s good for dinner since we were told that there are few teahouses open till late. Glad to find that Xi Meng Ren Sheng Teahouse 戲夢人生茶飯館 was still opened and they serve noodles and rice! I was actually not-so-into-it when the old people said they wanna dine in here. Touristy spot eh, I doubted the food will taste good. Since they were craving for rice, I had no choice but walked in with them. Happily, they ordered a set dinner that came with few dishes and rice (old people can’t live without rice). Contunue Reading

Jiufen 九份 (“nine portions”) got its name because during the Qing Dynasty, the village here housed only nine families and every time the shipments arrived from town, the village requested for only “nine portions” to be distributed to the people in this place.

After a wholesome breakfast, we then made our way to Jiufen. Remember to pack as light as possible if you are planning to overnight there. It might take you sometimes to head up the hill/staircase with ur stuff to look for your B&B.

To get to Jiufen, you could take bus or train. We chose the first one and take the MRT (blue line) to Zhongxiao Fuxing Station 忠孝復興捷運站 which was where the old people spotted the Lao Cai Shui Jian Bao 老蔡水煎包. To take the bus to Jiufen, walk along the road and make a left turn, walk further a lil bit and you will come to a TASTy 西堤牛排, the bus station is located right in front of this restaurant. Follow the queue and take the Keelung Bus Company 基隆客运 1062 to Jiufen.

Sometimes, you may see some private drivers offer the ride up Jiufen here at the bus stop. This was what we took actually because we did not want to waste our time at the queue. The driver charged at NT$ 200 per pax and additional of NT$ 50 per pax for the pit stop we made as below.

We started our second day of our Taiwan Trip with the hearty Taiwanese breakfast at Fu Hang Dou Jiang 阜杭豆漿. It is located at the second floor of HuaShan Market Building. We were there early, like 8+ in the morning, and the queue was already super long… down the staircase and outside the building. Contunue Reading
