We are moving to the East side of Taiwan. Our first stop is to 鹅銮 (luan)鼻公园及灯塔 . The park was very windy on that day, the higher we climbed, the more windy it was.
Along the pathway up, there were a few stalls selling souvenirs, from what I heard mostly were hand-made.
Preserved Puffer fish. According to our tour guide who bought 1 few years back, it is still as firm as new.
It is winter, the wind is cold, the hot spring is outdoor. Only a few people went for it. The rest of us just stay under the tent and chit chat till the time passed.
The most thrilling part for CT, our final stop of the day – Master Bear Resort (小熊度假村） We had our diner at the canteen in the resort, thereafter we got our keys to our room. As our resort have no lift, we the ‘youngsters’ have to stay at the upper level as the tour guide do not want the elderly to climb up and down the stairs.
Our living room at ground floor.
After the dance and games, we got to set up our Kong Ming Deng （孔明灯）. We were told to write down our wishes on the lantern and set it up to the heavenly gods.
First stop of the day is Sasiantai (三仙台) .
It is actually a protected scenery area in East of Taiwan. If you want to see nice nature scenery, Taidong is a good place for scenery viewing, they have mountains, ocean etc…
Bought some snacks to eat on the bus. Deep fried small crabs and shrimps
Deep Fried Flying fish ( I didn’t buy this)
(Our snack! Sorry for the blur image, the bus was shaking badly )
One of the pictures that I like that was taken on the bus, despite it is actually a graveyard.
After traveling for about an hour we reached our next destination – Ba Xian Dong （八仙洞）. But I did not see the 8 immortals statues over there. Eventually what I saw most was the Goddess of Mercy.
Find this statue quite interesting, how many of us are able to sit together and whispering to each other ears till old age?
