Taiwan Trip Day 5 - Fenchihu 奋起湖 | Eryanping Trail 二延平步道 | 云瀑谷

5 December 2018

Part 2 of Day 5 @ Sun Moon Lake - Alishan
1) Fenchihu (奋起湖)
2) Eryanping Trail (二延平步道)
3) Dinner @ 云瀑谷

12:30pm - We spent our afternoon exploring Fenchihu/Fenqihu (奋起湖). The quaint village felt a little like Jiufen (九份) and no wonder it is also commonly known as Jiufen in Alishan. Located in the Chiayi County, and standing at an altitude of about 1,403 meters, Fengchihu is famous for its old street, bento box and square bamboos. Despite its name, there is actually no lake in the area. In Taiwanese local dialect, [湖] meant low-lying land. Surrounded by mountains on the East, West and North, the low-lying area lies in the South.

Sushi House @ City Square Johor Bahru

It has been awhile since we drop by City Square Johor Bahru as off late we have been mainly shopping at Mount Austin, Tebrau or Sutera areas. Pretty refreshing to be back to see some of the newer shops and the current ones.

Sushi House with several outlets across Johor Bahru (e.g. Bukit Indah, Johor Jaya etc) finally had its grand opening in City Square Johor Bahru earlier this February. We chanced upon the Japanese restaurant at level 4 of the shopping mall and walked in for lunch.

We LOVE salmon sushi/sashimi and occasionally we will pamper ourselves to a sushi plate whenever we can. Salmon Sushi Lovers (RM18.80) - fit us perfectly as each salmon sushi has different topping.
