Day 9 – July 15th, 2012

After almost getting “fried” at 自由廣場 Liberty Square (Freedom Square), we retreated to Taipei Main Station Underground Mall to escape the sun. We had lunch at the food court. It was so crowded that we had to hang around for at least 15 minutes before we spotted a recently vacated table.

After lunch, we decided to stay underground because we were not ready to venture out into the heat. We didn’t stay long at Taipei Main Station Underground Mall though, as we certainly couldn’t afford the high-end merchandise there. After asking around, we discovered that there were several other underground malls. We spent a good few hours shopping at 中山地下街 Zhongshan Metro Shopping Mall. This was where I found my current favourite bag.

By late afternoon, we decided to head to our next destination 漁人碼頭 Fisherman’s Wharf . We took the MRT (red line) and alighted at 淡水Danshui station. From there we walked to the pier to take a ferry. Along the way, we walked past 淡水老街 Danshui Old Street, but we didn’t linger as we were hoping to catch the sunset from Fisherman’s Wharf.

While waiting for the sun to set, we shared three Subway sandwiches (Meatball Marinara, Cold Cut Combo and Grilled Chicken) to appease our growling tummies. Yummy~

Coming back from Fisherman’s Wharf, we scoured Danshui Old Street for local delicacies. After we had our fill, we took the MRT (pink line) to Xin Beitou, where we stayed the night at San Yue Hotspring Hotel. Xin Beitou is famous for its hot springs.
