Our accommodation at Kun Hotel, Taichung comes with daily buffet breakfast. The breakfast is mainly Taiwanese breakfast with a very basic western breakfast section. I am satisfied with the breakfast but wished they served some noodles too in addition to the Taiwanese porridge. Taiwanese breakfast section. Chicken nuggets, sausages, fried raddish cake (love the fried raddish cake) Bacon and eggs Bread Section Salad Section

After settling our hotel rooms, we quickly make our way to Fengjia Nite Market which is just a short walk from Kun Hotel. The night market is just beside Fengjia University. Saw this shop claiming to be more than 30 years old, must be good to have last long hahaha, so we just popped in to have dinner. They have free winter melon drinks, tasted very good and soothing to throat. We had one bowl of spicy beef noodle, two bowls of pork chop noodles and one bowl of chicken cutlet noodles and one bowl of dumplings. Total cost of our dinner was TWD365 (est about S$15) We need to tick our orders on this ordering sheets, they are all in mandarin and doubt they understand English. You might need fellow diners to translate or order for you if you dont understand mandarin. Alternatively just point to some food pictures on the wall. After dinner, was time for some shopping and snacking. It was really crowded at the night market especially since it was the weekend. Duck feet anyone? Ooo love the guava, we ate so many fruits during our trip, almost every night market, there were many fruit stalls like this. Lots of selfie stick for sale, slightly cheaper than those sold back home. Wow lots of pig's internal organs for sale hahaha. These children's clothings were so cute, with words of I love to be hugged, I love grandpa, grandma, mum and dad. Stall selling cooked pig's internal organs. Very vibrant and exciting Fengjia Night Market

As usual, we booked our hotel through Agoda.com, got good rates and instant confirmation and no need pay immediate. Kun Hotel is about 5 to 10 minutes walk to Fengjia Nite Market (the biggest in Taiwan). Highly recommend this hotel, it was clean and cozy and the staff very friendly and helpful, the only negative was there's only one lift, need to wait long if happens there's a group check in of tourists other than that we have no problem with the lift. We booked two rooms with double bed but given triple room for both rooms, the triple room came with one double bed and one single bed. Very happy for the bigger room.:) My sis's room is bigger, it had an extra sofa at the corner of the room. Love the hotel's lobby, very thoughtful to have lots of magazines for guests to read. Free use of wifi in the hotel and rooms too, and computer with printers and at the corner there's a coffee dispenser. The TV and newspaper corner, with snacks (cookies, wafer, biscuits, etc), all snacks are free of charge. They provided special rates for transport to the Taichung HSR station,Taichung Railway Station,Bus Station and airport only for guests who booked rooms online. You can use this service with the special rate only once. Map provided by the hotel to show the way from the hotel to Fengjia Nite Market.
