Held from 8th of November to 7th of December, 2014 Taichung International Flower Carpet Festival (check this link to get more information) since 2005 has become an annual event which turns Taichung a shining spotlight this time each year.
Have a simple but hearty breakfast in Les Champs.
Hotel Les Champs (press the link for more information) was the hotel where we stayed in Yilan at the end of our first day northern east trip. Starting from our honeymoon, about twelve years ago, whenever we plan to visit Yilan, Les Champs must have become a must-stay place.
After our fascinating tour of Juming Museum, and before we headed for Yehiu Geopark, a little bit exhausted, we, starving to death, broke into a large crowd of people on Jinshan Old Street, long after we had a difficult time finding a place to park the car. As we were ready to leave, chatting with a fruit vendor, we came to realize that in season in Jinshan are water rice, besides taros and sweet potatoes. Most of all, crabs are in this season, too. No wonder, people mountain people sea everywhere, get a hearty taste.
We haven't been looking forward this two-day northern east trip for this weekend, especially kids, not until kids' dad booked a room for October 26 a week ago. Peggy couldn't help but grumbling that we haven't been taking a trip for quite a long time since June. Obviously, how excited she was about traveling! Juming Museum was the very first stop of our two-day northern east trip in Taiwan.
