Offers daily flights between Singapore & Taipei

Day 1 (25 July 2005)

"Only 1 bed for 2 of us!"

Our flight left Singapore Changi International Aiport on the afternoon of 25 July 2005. Amidst the turbulence, we landed safely in Chiang Kai Shek International Airport in Taipei 4.5 hours later.

The airport bus took slightly more than an hour before we reached Taipei city. With little difficulty, we managed to board the evening crowded MRT train (Jie Yun) which would bring us to our hostel in Yung Ho District.

It was 7pm when we managed to check into our accomodation @
Amigo Hostel
. This was going to be our home for the next 3 days in Taipei. There was only 1 super single bed. Roys look at me and we smile.

We decided to head to the Miramar Ferris Wheel in Taipei before ending our first night at Shilin Night Market, established since 1899 .

We thought we might had difficulties getting to sleep that night. But despite the small bed, we felled into a deep sleep as we welcome day 2 of our Taiwan trip.

Anna, Welcome back to Singapore. It must be pretty hot in Taiwan right now. Hope you had fun. Probably, you can try yahoo to upload your pics. I usually don't share pics online so I'm not too sure which is the better URL for photo sharing. Looking forward to discover another new "side" of Taiwan. Roy
