Visit my website @ http://shirleylye12.wix.com/princessmic

this day we got a little more adventurous and checked out of our hotel and got our arse to Jiu Fen. the place where everyone is talking about! Getting Jiu fen is pretty easy, just need to buy a train ticket at Taipei Main station and take their railway train, alight at Rui Fang and take a cab up to Jiu Fen. We booked our accomdation with Shi Xia Xiang . The owner of the MinShu is very nice and offer to pick us up at Rui Fang train station. this is also my first time taking train lol.


our first meal in Rui Fang food centre! Food in Jiu Fen is very different from Taipei and apparently it is much cheaper too!


we also tried some of their local street food! yummy!

and this is LL and his Or AH Mee Sua lol

our Minshu is located at Jiu Fen. very near to the old town ( within walking distance). it cost about 120 per night which comes with breakfast and the Mingshu owner is very nice, he brought us around Jiu Fen for sight visiting too! u can contact him at
