It’s our last day in Taipei. Sad but we had a great memories that we are going to treasure forever. Memories that we are going to keep in our hearts for life.
Today, we booked a group tour outside Taipei. First stop is Yehliu Geopark. It is a cape that stretches for about 1.7 kilometer located at Wanli District, New Taipei. It is best known for unique rock formations and landscapes that formed from sea erosion and geological movements pushing Datun Mountains to change its form.
Entrance fee is NT80. It is a worth visit although it’s really jam packed with tourist.
Before we head over to Jiufen we stopped at the little waterfalls along the way for a quick picture taking.
After a few minutes of taking some pics we drive to Jiufen Old Street. This place is like Taiwan in the olden days (or maybe little Hong Kong), with many interesting shops. And, there is the beautiful ocean view of Keelung outer sea!
We decided to eat for lunch first before we continue to take a look at the place.
We start our walk to see what Jiufen has to offer. As we climb all the way up, it is a breath taking view of the ocean and sky…
Next stop is the Shifen Waterfalls. It is probably Taiwan’s most famous and has been nicknamed “Little Niagara” because the horseshoe shape mimics North America’s most famous waterfall. It’s not as tall nor as wide, at 20 meters high and 40 wide — though it is incredibly powerful. It is, however, insanely beautiful.
Releasing the sky lantern is on the list of must-do items when you visit the Shifen Old Street. Pingxi is the only place in Taiwan where sky lanterns are allowed to be released due to its sparse population and high altitude.
It cost NT150 for one lantern colour while NT200 for 4 colours lantern divided into 4 wishes. I chose the 4 colours lantern which consist of wishing for our health, wealth, promotion and marriage.
It was a great experience and this is the best part of our tour today. I won’t forget this day as I made my wish for my family both mum and dad and of course Tony and Sammie. God knows what really inside my heart through my everyday prayers.
Tomorrow we will go to airport at around 5:15am as I have to check in at 6am. Signing off. Bye for now Taiwan see you later! I will bring Tony and Sammie here very soon❤️
