I honestly didn’t have any idea on what the tourist spots are in Taiwan when I booked for tickets last September. The primary reason I chose it is because of my slight fascination over Taiwanese dramas before. Nope. I’m not talking about Meteor Garden. I didn’t watch that. Pa-cool ako dati e. Lol. Instead, I was crazy over dramas like He is Nightingale (this not-so-popular-drama inspired me to pursue Nursing! Hehe!), Love at the Dolphin Bay and Lavender. In short, I was very clueless on where to go so I asked help from my friend, Seckvoon. She suggested that I allocate a day going to the north, one to the south, etc., since Taipei is a small city that I can tour in a day.
Day 1 was focused on the north coast (in Yehliu) where the rock formations are, then to nearby places like Keelung, Jiufen and Jinguashi. To go to Yehliu, ride a Kuo Kuang Bus 1815 with the bus route Jin Shan Youth Activity Centre at Taipei West Bus Station in Terminal A. Bus ticket price is around 100NT dollars (around 150 pesos). Travel time is about an hour and a half. Don’t worry on where you need to drop off, the bus has a sound system that announces the current and next stop.
Welcome to Yehliu Geological Park!
From the entrance you will walk this path…
…that will eventually lead you to this breathtaking view!
Time to explore!
Thank you, Yehliu, for showing us your beauty!
