Day Tour of Shifen & Pingxi

Our Itinerary
We booked a 7:30 am to 12 nn tour through the hotel (not a wise decision, budget-wise, we realized later on 🙂 ) But then, we had fun!  (We could have just rented a car to take us to Pingxi, Shifen, Jiufen all at once.)

Houtong Cat Village (nothing worth seeing except if you really like cats – probably because we were there too early)
Shifen Waterfalls
Pingxi (Sky Lanterns) – my favorite part of the tour

Finally tried the tea egg – but this is actually available even in 7-11

Delicate, light, not so sweet = Two thumbs up!

In the evening, we had hotpot for dinner! 🙂 Memorable and delicious way to cap our July Taiwan trip.
