Rano opat spolu so zabavnou hkg babou na ranajky. Tam zas prezratie sa. Nevyhoda je, ze sa tu neda docapovat free voda. Dnes po vyse dvoch tyzdnoch budem kupovat flasu v obchode. Konecne dnes neprsi. Berem free bicykel na hoteli a hor sa do mesta. Zadna prehadzovacka vac nefunguje ako funguje, sedanka sa mi vzdy naklopi, tak jazda nic moc ale co by chcel clovek zadarmo. Z rieky miestny zeriav za asistencie potapaca vytahoval dake betonove kvadre. Preco tam boli hodene netusim. Prva zastavka pri velkej soche v parku Lin Mo-niang. Okolo sochy par dochodcov co ju malovalo na platno. Popri lodenici, kde vyrabali nove rybarske, jachtarske lode sa dostavam k vojnovej lodi deyang. Bicykel parkujem prave v cas, zacina poprchat. Muzeum na lodi ok ale vela pristrojov chyba, je tu i kaviarnicka spravena. Lod v ... read more

Velke minus je tu len jeden zachod spojeny so sprchou a umyvadlom. Som si rano trosku pockal kym pridem na radu. Na ranajky idem spolu s hgk babou. Opat kopa srandy, obcas je to zabava ked si ludia nerozumeju. Napraskany nazad do postele, kedze vonku leje. Dnes odchadza francuzska a aj taipejec. S nim poobede este vybehnutie na obed. Nastasti uz neprsalo. Boli sme v ulicke plnej restik, section 3, guohua. Po rozlucke prieskum dalsej casti mesta. Medzi tim sa mi na posteli objavil novy uterak, zubna kefka s pastou a 0.5l voda. Ostavam tu dalsiu noc, bo zajtra nema prsat. Pri check ine mi slubili rovnaku cenu ak si tu budem chcet predlzit pobyt, no dnes to uz neplatilo a noc stoji 300td (agoda, booking to iste). Nevim ci to zalezalo od recepcneho abo co. ... read more

Na stole ma opat cakali ranajky a vonku dazd. Chcel som ist kuknut blizky chram, ktory poskodilo zemetrasenie ale nakonec od toho kvoli dazdu upustam. Smer vlakova stanica. Debil som sa nepoucil zo vcera a nahodil na seba prspiplast. Na stanicu som dosol riadne spoteny. Tu predavala jedna babka zuvacky. Po pol hodine cakanie prichadza prazdny vlak. Z vlaku vidim za info centrom tank, samozrejme uz nefunkcny. Ah mohla byt dobra fotka. Na stanici som este rychlo dohodol jedno cs stretko v mestecku Xingying. Cesta ubehla, na prestup v mestecku ershui som mal 15.min ale vlak meskal dalsich 15.min Tentoraz nejdem lokalnym ale uz rychlejsim. Cena rovnaka avsak vlak je miestenkovy, takze ak si niekto zakupil miestenku musim ho pustit si sadnut. No ale to v tomto spoji nehrozi, vlak poloprazdny. Sedadla pohodlne a kopa miesta ... read more

Our bnb in Meinong was run by a couple of Artists and she did lots of crafts. She presented us with some lovely key rings that she had made and insisted on taking our photo!...I'm sure she doesn't take everyone's photo.. She had obviously told other guests that we were DRIVING and from England..as a lovely lady talked to us and wanted us to visit her when we go back up to Taipei at the end of our trip she has already been sending me lots of links to youtube ,she really wants us to enjoy her country. Anyway today the car goes back, so on to Tainan, the oldest city in the country. Only about an hours drive so we go to drop off the luggage first before returning the car. A great welcome from ... read more

David here... The train journey from Chiayi to Tainan was completely uneventful. The train was the same as all previous ones, clean, efficient though a little busier. We arrived into Tainan in the early afternoon and made our way to the FX Hotel, about a 30 minute walk from the station. Reception was up to the 8th floor. We were a bit mistified as to why the entrance area had big Star Wars posters opposite the lifts. We got to the lobby to find ourselves facing an Iron Man statue. Then it clicked, FX hotel. There were also fashion shows being shown on all the screens in the lobby and even in the lift. The lobby felt modern and a little posh. Again, no chance to check in so we dumped our bags and went straight ... read more

Pewnie większość czytajacych te słowa oczekuje barwnej historii jak to jedno nas zjadło świetną ostrygę, która wzięła ostry zakręt w żoładku i płynąc pod prad w przełyku, mimo naszych protestów, wyladowała na nieskazitelnym chodniku Tainan. Otóż nie. Dziś będzie w formie małego poradnika, ponieważ to Tainan jest jak ostryga. Gdy wjeżdża się do miasta wydaje się mało intersujące, zaniedbane, jak zarośnieta skorupa ostrygi, lecz to samo Tainan skrywa w sobie delikatesowego gluta, który po rozchyleniu muszli jest niepowtarzalny i trudno się nim nasycić. Dobra koniec z infantylnymi metaforami i do rzeczy. Po niezamierzonej porannej (6.00) pobudce spowodowanej przejściem buddyjskiej orkiestry dętej po naszymi oknami zapadliśmy w głęboki sen i dopiero alarm fizjologiczny przebudził nas o 9.30. Ja się wyspałem na ''tej desce'', jak to ujęła Basia.... read more

Ok dziś będzie poważnie bo tak też podeszliśmy do tematu realizacji ustalonego planu. Po zmianie miejsca pobytu z nowej stolicy, Taipei, na starą, Tainan, dokladnie takie samo jest pierwsze wrażenie. Tainan jest stary. Pod każdym względem. Jest to jego i wada zaleta. To tyle co wiemy po 6 h intensywnego obcowania z nim. Poważne podejście do tematu realizacji planu wiazało się z założeniem, ze dziś tylko jedziemy do Tainan tą ich piękną, szybką i drogą (kosztuje tyle co rejs samolotem na krótkim dystansie) koleją na południe i tu zwiedzamy Muzeum Historii Tajwanu, po czym idziemy spać. Spać ponieważ miniona noc była poważną rysą na nieskazitelnym, jak dotąd, wizerunku naszego hotelu. 3/4 czasu ciszę zaburzało nieustajace brzęczenie dobywajace się z pokoju nad lub pod nami. Brzęczenie wprawiajace w wibrację nawet nasze poduszki. Nie dało się ... read more

Asia » Taiwan » Tainan October 4th 2014

We arrived back from our day trip up the coast, collected our bags, chose food for our train dinner from the gourmet delights at 7/11 and happily settled in with the free wifi at the station until it was time to board our train for Tainan. After a three and half hour trip we arrived at the large station right in the centre of Tainan. Tainan is still culturally alive, particularly around the temples, of which there are many. However with no accommodation booked at the beginning of a weekend - any place in Taiwan can be a weekend destination for local people as the distances are not great and public transport so efficient. We walked out of the station into neon lighting central - a very busy shopping area, buzzing with people at 9pm at ... read more

For tourism purposes Tainan is divided into two area: Central Tainan close to the train station where all the old temples are and Anping near the sea. Anping: I went to Anping at the week end so the old streets were very crowded and all the stands were animated. I visited the Tree House which was a warehouse under Japanese occupation. It belong to the Japan Salt Company but was abandoned after WWII. Now Banyan trees have taken the ground over and have wrapped around the brick walls. It seems that most of the building are formed by the trees. It's very cool. For lunch I lost myself in the small alleys and opted for an oyster omelet, some dip fried shrimp wonton (excellent) and a watermelon juice. All that obtained with much pointing and the ... read more

Taiwan has one of the three mud hot spring known worldwide (one is in Japan and the other in Sicily). So I thought I had to check it out. It is not a very well-traveled spot and people were really surprised I had even heard of the place. To get there I had to get the train and then two different buses. Once again the journey went fine thanks to people kindness. The station master in Xinying was really funny and once I had told him where I was going it would point at each arriving/departing bus and make a big cross with his arms to make sure I don't get on it. After about 25min, my bus was here and he pointed at it with a big smile. Xie Xie (thank you). I arrived in ... read more
