CAN'T WAIT UNTIL WE GO VISIT AGAIN.....
19.04.2014 - 01.05.2014
We stopped on hulian city where we bought ticket to Taroko national park. It is a must experience with waterfalls and mountains that you don't see the end of them and the color of the rivers are blue greenish beautiful.... Many tunnels and we hulled 2.1 km until we got to the cave that has the watt fall. Yury has surprise that he met his Chinese friend "momo" that we saw 2 days before in Tainan. Yury's wish came true of seeing his friend again. We met another travelers from china and Venezuela Irene she is professor at Huston university and she is traveling in Taiwan and Helen and Michael are Chinese from south China that traveling in Taiwan we had such an amazing experience with them traveling through the National park. We are going to catch the train to Yilan our last stop before heading back to our host family in Taichung. Today we are in Yilan big city with very vibrant night market we are staying in very cheap hotel that cost $40 and it is in the heart of the town with train station walking distance. Bader and Emma met two girls from This local city last night that they offer to show us around in Yilan City. Just to note Taiwan has 30 million population with the most advance technology and trains that run all over the country with very affordable price. Also the food is great and very cheap. If I have the chance to live here I don't need to think again about cooking. Lunch box on the train cost $2 that include rice, pork, vegetables, egg. My children liked the lunch box at the train so much that now I have to do the same lunch back in Los Angeles.
We loved roaming through the city and we had the best breakfast made with eggs and rice floor. We ate until we couldn't move. We walked with Rachel and Jasmine around the city and we went to a nice coffee place called 1988 where we had the best tea ever. 3 different kinds of tea one made with herbs and the other made with Apple, lemon, lime and tomato. The kids ate waffles with the great design ever. Just to note Taiwanese people are the nicest people you can ever meet. They are helpful, generous, hospitable, and will do anything to let you feel welcome. I and my family feel humble and grateful to visit this country and meet all these nice people. Finally, while the kids and Bader with the host family enjoyed swimming in their indoor swimming pool I and Emma after encouragement from my host took a taxi and went to the night market of Taichung. Oh mine I am happy we did it. I and Emma shopped around for beautiful clothes that are very cheap. And ate delicious snacks of sausages and sweet potato. We love Taiwan,,,,,,
And we love to visit again.
