Taiwan 2018 Travelogue - Day 9 to 13 Yehliu Geopark + Jiufen + Taipei 101 + Ximending + Shilin Night Market

We spent the last 4 days in Taipei which I booked an Airbnb for us to stay since we wanted somewhere that is convenient and near to Ximending area.

The place is rather cramped but I thought it is quite comfortable for us.

There are also incredibly many good food nearby some of those including the famous Fuhong beef noodle, the number 1 best Taiyangping in Taiwan and the cuttlefish noodle just down the stairs. There is also 7-eleven right below the apartment.

Airbnb for 4 nights in Taipei Ximending
We didn't spend a lot of attraction visiting in Taipei as we had enough during our island round-trip before coming to Taipei and many were exhausted. So we simply chill around and look for some snacks to bite and eat.

Nevertheless, we visited a few of them.

One of them is the Yehliu Geopark which is home to a number of unique geological formations of stones including the "Queen's Head" and is located along a cape stretching out from the town of Wanli.

Besides the "Queen's Head", the other remarkable formations also features "Sea Candles", "Kissing Rock" and the "Princess Head".

After visiting the Geopark, we were famished and we headed straight to Jiufen where the old streets were selling plenty of delicacies and bites we could very much welcome.

Apart from the above, we also visited Taipei 101 attraction in a separate day, which the ticket I booked through Klook which was fast, convenient and also cheaper than buying onsite.

And also last but not least, we'll leave the memory of Ximending with us, which we really have a great time walking everyday all day long.

  1. Hi B,

    Wow. I want the suckling pig! Looks really delicious. I love the photos from Sunmoon Lake too and you look really happy :)

    Don't mind if I were to ask you how much is the cost for the overall trip/pax. Understand that it would be slightly higher due to B Jr. I'm still impressed by the trip and your post makes me wanna visit Taiwan again!

    Maybe it's time for me to plan a trip to Taiwan! :)

    1. Hi Sleepydevil

      Overall, we spent about slightly more than $10k for a total of 8 pax, which is broken down into around $3k transport $3k accommodation and another $4k for eat and shopping. Our tickets are claimed through our krisflyer miles.

      Seeing your Japan trip also made me miss them and wish I could go back soon :)

  2. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC ( in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
