Over the past few years, we have worked really hard in starting our web and graphic design business, and making it grow. The CryoDragon Team finally took some time off of our usual busy schedules from April 19th – 29th to go on our first overseas trip to Taipei, Taiwan!
We have broken up our adventure into day-by-day posts.
Day 4 Afternoon and Evening: Jiufen Village, Elephant Trunk and Teppanyaki Experience
After leaving Yehliu Geopark, we worked our way to Jiufen Village, a small and isolated village built on the mountainside. The majority of the attractions are concentrated along the three main roads that run throughout the village, and there are tons of shops, restaurants and cafés that line the streets. We visited this Jiufen Old Street, and had some beef noodle here as well!
When we made it to the top of the village, we caught a breathtaking view of the region. Imagine waking up to this each day!
After our trip to Jiufen Village, we had a few places left to hit. The first stop was Elephant Trunk Rock, another natural phenomenon brought about by sea erosion through time. Without going into any details, let’s just say it took a long stroll on rough terrain covered with scurrying sea cockroaches. But we got there and took some nice pictures.
Now, it was time to head back to Taipei City. Along the way, we visited Keelung City, a major port city in the northeastern part of Taiwan. It was definitely a busy place, but at the top of Keelung City, there exists a tranquil Chung Cheng Park with the biggest goddess statue in Southeast Asia. It was certainly very huge, and offered a scenic view of the city.
When we finally arrived back in Taipei, we went for our first teppanyaki experience at Robin’s Teppanyaki, located in Taipei’s Regent Hotel. The 7-course meal was exquisite and beyond filling, and it was definitely an experience to remember.
After a long day, we went back to the hotel to rest and prepare for the next set of adventures!
