Taiwan Trip Day 12 - Taipei (台北) | Taipei City Mall | Ximending (西门町)

12 December 2018

After spending 4D3N at Kaohsiung, it is time to embark on our final league of travel in our 2 weeks Taiwan trip. It is a mixed feeling traveling up to Taipei as it also means our holiday is coming to an end soon!

8:15am - We checked out of Jia's Inn and travel down to Kaohsiung HSR Station at Zuoying (左营站)

8:50am - Traveling to Zuoying Station is a breeze as it is easily accessible via the metro line. We took about 30 minutes from R10 Formosa Boulevard to R16 Zuoying (THSR). Arriving early is important as we definitely do not want to miss the train!

Taiwan Trip Day 11 - Kaohsiung (高雄) | Ruifeng Night Market (瑞丰夜市) | MONGA Fried Chicken (艋舺鸡排)

11 December 2018

Our final night at Kaohsiung and we decided to head to Ruifeng Night Market (瑞丰夜市) - one of the most popular and largest night markets in Kaohsiung. Spanning across 3,000 square meters, and more than 1,000 stalls, you can find a wide variety of local delights in the market which has 20-years of history. Apart from eateries, there are game stalls and stalls selling clothing and accessories.

How to get to Ruifeng Night Market
Take Metro line to R14 : Kaohsiung Arena Station (巨蛋站).
Take Exit 1 and Ruifeng Night Market is about 5 minutes walk away.

6pm: We arrived a little early before the crowd swam in from 8pm onwards, hence we did not feel the craze of the night market as many has shared. Think it will be good to feel the atmosphere at a later time if you are planning to visit as some of the vendors have not started business too.
