day 07 in taiwan (0 comments)
today we left taipeh, and headed to "sun moon lake". we picked a train at 10:00 in the morning, so after having breakfast and checking out we drove to the main station. but when we wanted to buy a ticket the guy at the counter said "no seats". in other (more) words: the trains were full, you are not allowed to board. next train would be at 12:00 o'clock he said, but we decided to go the bus station instead and try our luck by going by bus. fortunately the bus station is only about five minutes on foot away from the train station. there we bought a ticket to puli, where we will change for shuishe, where our hostel, which we booked at about 02:00 o'clock in the morning, is located. in puli there were no english signs, and also the people at the bus station did not speak english. but we managed to get the right bus, because the people here are so friendly and really try to help whenever possible, even if they don't speak a word english. i really love that.
on the bus[01-02] we took a nap, and enjoyed the landscape. and after about a four and a half hour bus trip later we finally arrived at shuishe at the sun moon lake, a quite small city, full of tourists (chinese people that is), "lively" one would say. in shuishe we took a short stroll[03-21], some delicious take-away food which we ate at the pier, some awesome fruits, had a "taiwan beer"[16], and went back to the hostel, as everything here closes at 21:00 o'clock, and therefore the hostel also closes at 22:00.
there the owner told us there will be a hike tomorrow morning, that will bring us up a mountain to enjoy the sunset. that means departure at 04:50. we said we try to join. i wonder if we make it... track: day 07
