PLEASE ASK PERMISSION BEFORE YOU RE POST MY PHOTOS ON TO YOUR BLOG. THERE ARE SOME BLOGGERS WHO DID NOT ASK MY PERMISSION AND REPOST MY PHOTOS WITHOUT THE COURTESY OF LINKING BACK TO MY BLOG. THIS IS LIKE STEALING. PEOPLE, I HAVE SPEND MUCH TIME TAKING PHOTOS AND DOING HOMEWORK ON MY TRAVELLING INFORMATION AND KINDLY SHARE THESE INFORMATION TO ANYONE INTERESTED IN THEM. IF NECESSARY I WILL POST SCREEN SHOT OF YOUR BLOG TO SHOW YOUR BAD MANNERS OF STEALING MY PHOTOS. THE MOST DISGUSTING THING THEY DID WAS TO SCREEN SHOT MY PHOTO AND CORP OFF MY BLOG TITLE AND REPOST IN THEIR BLOG.
Day 5 of our trip - after a nice breakfast at the hotel cafe, we took the MRT from Taipei Main Station to Shilin MRT Station. Costs us NT25 per person. As always the MRT Station has lots of signs to direct us to places of interest.
Our plan was to visit the National Museum Palace, so we headed straight to the main road from the MRT Station.
We spotted the bus stop very easily which was located just along the main road infront of the MRT Station.
Lots of signs and explanation on which bus to take to the places of interest. I spotted Yamingshan, not visiting this place cause we had already visited during our last trip.
From this bus stop, we took the Red Bus No. 30 to the National Palace Museum. Costs us only NT15. It was some kind of loop service, the bus will terminate at the National Palace Museum (last stop) and the bus will also pick up passengers back to the MRT Station and continued its journey. It was easy to spot the museum.
Too many scaffoldings spoilt the whole museum look. I think there's some kind of exhibition going on.
The statue of Dr Sun Yat Sen in the museum.
Very surprised to see so many people in the museum. From this point onwards, I could not take any more photos. Photography are not allowed inside the museum. When you have visited the museum, do remember to visit the souvenir shop, they have lots of nice and beautiful souvenirs.
You can visit the official website for more information on the visiting hours and admission tickets.
If you remember before my trip, I collected the free museum tickets from the Taiwan Tourist Association. You can read about it in my previous post. We used the free museum tickets to enter the exhibition halls.
After visiting the museum and shopping at the souvenir store, we took the red bus no. 30 back to Shilin MRT Station. As it was almost noon, we decided to hunt for our lunch at the alley next to the MRT Station.
Spotted this nice chinese restaurant and they served very nice and yummy chinese food.
We ordered a bowl of seafood noodle and rice with sweet and sour chicken. The portion were very huge and price reasonable. They come together with drinks.
I think this is the best lunch since I arrived in Taiwan hahaha
The rice came with some chopped vegetables, eggs and intestines. ( I did not take the intestines cause was quite tough) Love the chopped vegetables and the sweet and sour chicken tasted so good.
After a nice lunch, we proceeded to our next destination.
