Taipei Travelogue 1.2 (台北自由行1.2 淡水老街,士林夜市)

Part 2 of my Taipei Travelogue! Travelling all the way to Dan Shui and back for ShiLin Night Market! Dan Shui is the end of the metro line and it takes about 40 minutes to an hour from DongMen station where our hotel is located. And of course, Shilin night market is located at Jiantan station!
这次我们上午去了淡水,到了傍晚就到士林夜市去!淡水是捷运站的终点站,从东门站大概需要40分钟到一小时左右.而士林夜市是在剑谭站,不是士林站哦!

Selfie first with The Mum before heading out for the day!

On the Metro towards Dan Shui. It’s a pretty long trip but the scenery along the way are worth it!
在前往淡水的路途中,风景很不错哦!

The Mum in front of Dan Shui Metro Station. It’s essentially an old brick building transformed into a Metro station.
淡水车站.挺古色古香的建筑.

A better view of Dan Shui Metro station! The bus terminal is at the other end.
来张看的到的!另一边是巴士站哦!去渔人码头的话,可以搭巴士或者船.

hkdsshop

As it was raining, we decided to ditch the idea of heading to the famous Yu Ren Ma Tou and just explore the Dan Shui Lao Jie. I found this shop selling the famous Taiwanese Snacks in form of HELLO KITTY!
由于是雨天,我们放弃了去渔人码头的打算.就决定只在老街逛.而我就找到了这家凯蒂猫的土产店.超可爱的!

dshkshopmemum

Must take photo with the Kitty Mascot and even made The Mum did it. Hahah. Look at her expression!
一定要拍张照!逼着母亲大人也拍,看看她的表情!哈哈!

It’s a pity that it was raining and was pretty cold. However, the view is still breathe-taking in real life.
虽然下着毛毛细雨,但风景依然迷人.

mecuds

Must have a selfie with the view.
来张自拍.呵呵.

We stopped at this old look old point area to snap some photos. It’s actually near the Fish Ball Museum. Yes, there’s a Museum on Fish Ball in Dan Shui.
我们停在一处像了望台的地方拍照.是靠近鱼丸博物馆附近哦!

medsscene

Peace* I looked fat cause I was feeling super bloated from PMS-ing. Sandals are first day buys from XiMenDing!
看起来肚子有点大,都怪月事的错.鞋子是在西门盯买的哦!

dsicecreamme

I did mentioned it was raining and super cold but one cannot not eat the super tall ice cream cone! I opted for the shorter version as I really don’t think I can finish it. End up I can’t even finish the short one. It’s for NTD30 if I didn’t remember wrongly. They have this other snack, which is the Octopus Tempura which I love!!
冰淇淋!天气太冷了,所以只买小只的!台币30左右!我比较喜欢吃热乎乎的章鱼烧.

shilintrain

After a whole day of shopping at Dan Shui, we proceeded to our first night market of the trip. Shilin Night Market!
逛了一天的淡水老街,是时候去士林夜市逛咯!

shilinstreet

This is just the outside and there’s many food stalls selling local Taiwanese delicacy.
很多卖道地台湾美食的摊贩哦!

prince cheese potato shop

My first buy at Shilin is this Prince Cheese Potatoes!! Have seen this at many variety shows and I can finally taste it for myself! Long queue but the guy is pretty efficient. They will take your orders first while you are queuing!
常常在美食节目看到的王子起司马铃薯!终于可以亲自品尝了!排队排挺长的,不过他们很有效率哦!在排队时,会先点餐.

prince cheese potato

This is really some cheesey goodness! It is really very delicious and you wont be sick of eating it despite it being mainly starch(potatoes) and cheese. The cheese is the nacho cheese kind.
这真的很好吃!吃多了也不会腻!

mumandcutemascot

Mum saw this cute Mascot of a Fashion Brand and asked for a photo. How cute!
看到可爱的东西就要求拍照的母亲大人!

mangoice

Another must eat when in Taiwan. Mango ice! This is actually Mango Snow Ice with Mango Ice Cream. Very fresh mangoes and this is NTD140 I think.
来到台湾怎么能够不吃芒果冰呢?!这是台币140的芒果雪花冰加芒果冰淇淋.

When at Night Market, beware of the fruit sellers. They like to kind of cheat tourist money. We ended up buying a packet of mangoes which is really nice I must say but for NTD300 which is about SGD 15. They charge by per 100 gram despite they just stating each fruit is about NTD50-60. Not say cannot buy, but don’t end up buying too much. We could not finish the mangoes in the end. As I bought Pig Blood Tofu Soup and Smelly Tofu to eat back at the hotel.
在夜市要买水果的话要小心哦!他们是看重量卖的!不要不小心就买了太贵的水果,而且还吃不完!
