Day 2: Taipei

Martyr Shrine

Guard changing ceremony

Inside the shrine

Yang Ming Shan National Park

The fumaroles at Xiaoyoukeng. It has been emitting smoke non stop don't know for how many years already.

Boiling mud

We went to Lengshuikeng to check out the hotsprings pools. It is free entry and the indoor pools are separated for male and female. Whoa, the pool was packed with so many naked aunties and amahs, feeling embarassed I just walked out :P He also had the same experience with the uncles hahaha...

After this we went to Beitou. There are many hotspring resorts here but since the weather was quite warm we decided to give it a miss.

Hell Valley at Beitou

This is not your typical hotsprings. The water temperature is around 80-90 degree celcius and we can see it boiling.

Dan Shui

Bought a stick of stinky tofu here. It actually tasted quite good and not smelly at all.

Shilin Night Market Part II

Small pancake wrapped in large pancake 大餅包小餅

The pancake was wrapped in the popiah skin and then crushed to pieces.

Oyster omelette 蚵仔煎

The omelette with peanut sauce. Not good at all.

Oyster mee sua 蚵仔麵線

This was different from the Ah Chung mian xian. Didn't like it too.

Grand Hyatt
We would stay here for the next couple of days. It is one of the most expensive hotel in town, but the room didn't really impress me. It was spacious but that was all about it.
