continued from here…
Next in the list was to visit the former British Consulate Residence at Dagou but the only information in hand at that time was the embassy is located opposite the Gushan pier and to get there, you can either walk or take a shuttle bus. So, we crossed the bridge and walked for some distance and figure out that it is impossible for us to walk there so we made a u-turn and looked for bus stop which took us some times to realize it was just opposite the road. Why we missed it?? bcoz the stop was freaking big (i mean small – only a tiang with a bus pic) tsk!!!
We boarded a bus and when we reached there, we breathed a sigh of relief not bcoz the ride was dangerous but thank god we didn’t walk there. Damm far!! The bus will stop at here
and you will have to walk this flight of stairs *faint
and this, the Former British Consulate Residence. You can also see Cihou lighthouse from here.
the wax statue of both party negotiating…
Nothing much to see actually and since it was packed with tourists, we decided to adjourn to the next destination which is Love River for a boat ride. So, we boarded a bus to the nearest MRT station which is Sizihwan station (01). And according to source, to get to Love River, take the MRT to Yanchengpu station (02) and wait for shuttle bus. Yanchengpu MRT station information directory seriously needed a review!!! Can’t find the bus stop again and after asking around, Love River is at the far end down the road…. problem is, I can’t see the end!!! So, gave up lo….
Since it was already close to 6pm, we decided to go to the Liuhe night market for dinner.
To get there: Take the MRT to Formosa Boulevard station (R10/05) and follow exit 11.
A must see attraction, the art dome in the middle of the station which is known as the “Dome of Light”, a creation by Italian artist.
A combination of earth, water, light and fire. Be sure to capture this mesmerizing view…
Liuhe night market is located just few steps away from exit 11. This is a more organized and spacious market compared to Ruifeng.
Ohhh, I see it again.. Can’t resist the temptation. Seems like this is the most famous stall.
Yummy-licious strawberry milk.
Next, BBQ stuff again…
Taiwan noodle – see how big is the squid… yucksss~~
Cheese pork bun.
Black pepper pork bun.

Seafood Taiwanese style. Table and chair conquering the middle of the road. How can they enjoy it when there are hundred of people passing by each second??
Crunchy “yau char guai”
Star fruit juice.
Beef noodle 担仔面
Another BBQ stall.
More BBQ stall.
Braised pork and soup.
Tasty chicken salad. I miss this…
After tapao-ed everything, let the feast begin!!!
