Hsinchu, Nanliao, Taiwan Taiwan photos: 61-70 Date: June 6, 2014Author: Mandy 2 Comments One: In Neiwan, Sabrina found a small shop where she could buy ceramic mugs and personalize the wooden handle. At the top, she wrote her nickname for her boyfriend in Chinese. Two: Yummy pyramid-rice-meat-steamed-wrapped-in-leaves thingy! No, seriously, these are delicious. Three: Riding the train from Neiwan to Hsinchu. This is the conductor, who was in the same car as us, but never checked my ticket. That’s a good thing, because I’d bought the wrong one at half the price (67 cents as opposed to $1.40.). Four: We rented three quad bikes to ride around Nanliao. Here are Ryan, Linda, Jack, and Sunny behind us. Five: The Nanliao coastline. Look far enough and you’ll see China. Six: We biked on the 17km of Scenic Coastline, as the guidebooks like to call it. Sabrina and I didn’t want to do it, but Sunny wouldn’t accept No. And then we had a blast. Seven: Din Tai Fung, a world-famous dumplings restaurant. You can watch the chefs make the dumplings fresh, by hand, in the kitchen. They are the most delicious dumplings you’ll ever eat. Eight: Check out the blue balloon. At the 7 o’clock position – do you see it? DO YOU SEE THE DART? Yeah, I almost won a pony, but that stupid green dart was a millimeter off. Nine: We played real-life Angry Birds. This is why I love night markets in Taiwan – the ridiculous and super fun games. Ten: These are the essential oils pots I posted about previously. My mom wants me to get her some, which I should’ve realized while we were in Neiwan. So hey – if you want an essential oils pot, I’ll try to get you one, too.

My condolences about not winning the pony. Your photos totally capture the atmosphere of Taiwan.
I’ll be going again sometime next year (hopefully), so my hopes of winning a pony are not dashed entirely. If you’re up for it, you should come with me when I go back. My Taiwanese family would welcome you with open arms.
