阿里山 Alishan; #1

Hello there everybody!
As you may or may not know, I went on a trip to Taiwan with my family over the summer. That was my third time visiting Taiwan and I am definitely going back again. The only three things I love about Taiwan are their foods, their shopping and their boys. HAHAHA.

We spent most of our time in Taichung. We then took a day trip to the famous Alishan. It's that famous mountain from the Chinese nursery rhyme "阿里山的姑娘美如水啊 阿里山的少年壯如山阿~". Never heard of it? Google. 

Hello there, selfie on the bus 

We stopped for a break on our way up to the mountain. It was already so pretty even half way up. 

Don't you think so? x

This fruit stall caught our attention. Yes, it's a fruit. 

One of the amazing thing about Taiwan stalls is that they love giving out free tries. They won't bug you to buy their products even after having as many rounds of free tries as you want. HAHAHA such an Asian thought. I thought that fruits were alright though. They tasted just like roasted chestnuts to me.

We went for a stroll in 老街. It means Old Street if you direct translate it to English. We were told that this was the oldest street market in that area. They sell Taiwanese gifts, souvenirs and lots of foods. I was already so happy walking around here.

This is the most famous Bento shop in that street, which has operated for 60 years. We've all got these for lunch for the journey as we were running out of time. Bento shops can be seen everywhere in Taiwan. Bento is the best thing ever 'cause it's so convenient, cheap and this particular one tasted super amazing.

.. And then we came across this abandoned train station at the end of the market. There were not any trains around. Promise. Everywhere looks so green and eco-friendly here.

Stay tune for Alishan next xx.

Lots of Love,
zhi wei x
