TRAVEL | Taiwan 7D6N Itinerary 台湾之旅 : Day02 - Rainbow Village

Taiwan 7D6N Itinerary 台湾之旅 : Day02 - Rainbow Village 台中彩虹眷村

After a light breakfast, we hopped into the shuttle bus and off we headed to our first destination - the Rainbow Village!

 Place of interest : 台中彩虹眷村 (Rainbow Village)
Opening hours : 8am-6pm (weekdays), 8am-7pm (weekend)
Location : Chunan Rd, Nantun District, Taichung, Taiwan 408
Admission : FREE, no ticket purchasing required

** Venue is reachable by shuttle bus (+ abit of walking) & bus fare is FOC if it's within the district. **

What to do at the Rainbow Village?
- Nothing. Take photos, take photos and take photos. (˘◡˘) 
- Explore every inch of the village and appreciate the unique artwork of Rainbow Grandpa.
- On certain day, if you're lucky, you will get to meet the "彩虹超人" aka the Rainbow Superman who'll be wandering around with his guitar, performing to public.

All the art here is the creation of this talented 90 years old grandpa, aka 'Rainbow Grandpa'. Definitely one of a kind. You might wanna grab yourself a postcard or some souvenirs before heading off as all are handmade based on Grandpa's artwork and they only sell it here if i'm not mistaken. 

Every corner of this place is art, painted affectionately by Rainbow Grandpa. Camera worthy and a very good spot for OOTD post as well :p haha Basically there's nothing much here. But still, personally, i think it is worth a visit. This place is actually quite special with pretty unique artwork and it is definitely not something you'll see in your everyday life! So if you are an art enthusiastic, you might wanna drop by here :)

Just incase this might caught your interest, this is what i had for my breakfast. This stall located just a stone throw from our hostel. They call it "蛋饼" in Chinese, some sort like Egg Pancake or something. Quite nice, i like it. Something new, as i don't remember seeing this in Malaysia. Very cheap yet tummy filling. Only cost about RM1+ per piece. Try it :)

Look out for my upcoming post on the rest of my Taiwan itinerary. 
Pretty sure it won't disappoints you! xx (っ◔◡◔)っ ♥

TRAVEL | Taiwan 7D6N Itinerary 台湾之旅 : Day01 - TaiChung 台中

Suddenly, it's August! T.T I know i've probably said this for like a thousand times, but time sure flies! With a blink of eye, it's already August and it also marks two months since my Taiwan jimui trip! I'm so excited to share my experience and Taiwan itinerary with you all! It's time to pay back! For those who will be travelling to Taiwan soon, i hope this helps :) It was a memorable trip, especially when i'm with my bunch if crazy girls! :p 

It was my first time in Taiwan and thankfully everything was good, no typhoon, no earthquake during our visit. Our trip was back in end of May, sunny weather in Taiwan, the temperature was just like in Malaysia. It was a 7N6D trip. Overall, i spent not more than 2k on this trip, including flights tickets, hostel staying, entrance fees, car rental, food, souvenirs and etc. I exchanged 1.9k+ for 15000TWD, the rate back then was 12.75 which is quite high but serve me right cause i was too kiasu and waited till the very last minute hahaha T.T

Our itinerary was : 
Malaysia > TaoYuan Airport 桃园 > TaiChung 台中 > Taipei 台北 > TaoYuan Airport > Malaysia.
Are you ready? Let's go! Up up and away~ Such breathtaking scenery...

After a good couple of hours, we finally arrived! Welcome to Taiwan :) Safely touched down. So this is how Tao Yuan airport looks like :O Amused by the architecture roof feature and the superb reflections on the polished floor tiles. Grabbed a quick hearty meal at the airport before we're off to Taichung. 

Here's the tips. Grab yourself a 'youyou' card ( 悠遊卡 ) aka Easy Card at the convenience store. There are various of cute designs for you to choose from. Cost at 100NTD per card, then reload with a minimum of 100NTD. These cards really come handy especially for those who are on budget travel like us. It's really convenient for you to use it on public transport whether on shuttle bus or the train. The credit is not refundable though, but still worth keeping one! Cute ≧'◡'≦ You could also use up the credit to buy things at the convenience store.

Off to TaiChung right after our meal. Bus ticket at 240NTD per head. The bus ride took roughly about 40minutes - 1hour if not mistaken. Time to snooze Zzz...

By the time we arrived TaiChung it's already night. Checked in our hostel and settled our dinner nearby at the FengJia night market. Basically, nothing much on Day01...and literally, Taiwan night market is equals to our Malaysia pasar malam. To me,...uhm nothing fancy lah

Did not really eat much..everything seems so common...maybe it's just me. I did tried their famous 大腸包小腸 'big sausage wrap small sausage', was disappointing to be honest (≖_≖ ) I think we went to the wrong stall. Lesson learnt. Never go for those death looking stall with less customers (≖᷆︵︣≖) Two bowl of ice dessert and that pretty much sums up our Day01 in Taiwan.

The real excitement started after Day01! :P Look out for my upcoming post on the rest of my Taiwan itinerary. Pretty sure it won't disappoints you! xx (っ◔◡◔)っ ♥
