Trip to Tamsui Riverfront 淡水河畔

Just spent an afternoon in Tamsui in New Taipei City.

It’s not so close to Taipei city, looks like it has some nice view and some old streets.

It was Sunday so the old street is quite packed. I normally won’t specially go to see such old street, but it’s Sunday, everywhere is packed anyway.

Beautiful riverfront walk!

Bothing better than a morning coffee in a vintage style café

I stay in Dihua Rd, not until yesterday Taiwan Steemians told me this area is full of nice shops and has become quite trendy recently, did I realise I should explore the street, since I stay so close by!

This cute café attracts me.

Love its decorations!

Great for photo taking I guess.

Trains around Taiwan

If you follow my blog, you must have known that I love travelling by train.

In Taiwan they have regular trains around the island. I guess it’s pretty easy to figure it out, because if all the trains go around the island, then there are basically only two kinds of trains right? Or maybe also some other ones that stop in smaller towns but anyway, travelling in Taiwan by train is easy and comfortable.

Ice dessert in Taiwan

In Taiwan you find shaved ice shops everywhere. For someone with lactoce intolerance, this is perfect dessert for a warm day.

You can add all kinds of toppings, red bean, green bean (I know for some people, dessert with beans sound weird but I love it), fruit, taro ball, pudding, etc.
