Yehliu Geopark

Directions: From Taipei Main Station, find the Taipei West Bus Terminal Station A. It was hard to find the terminal if it’s your first time so what we did is ask a station personnel. Once in the bus terminal, board bus 1815. Again, it’s safer to tell the driver that you be going to Yehliu. There’s 34 stops between Taipei and Yehliu so goodluck counting the number of stops. Once you alight at the bus stop, follow this walking directions. (Google maps)

What’s special here: Rock formations in different shapes! Entrance fee: TWD 80 for Adults

She’s so popular, I can’t get a clean shot

Am I in Grand Canyon?

Be careful – a deep chasm!

Bye Yehliu!

Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall 

Directions: SYS Memorial has it’s own metro station, but if you’re coming back from Yehliu Geopark, you can also also take the same 1815 bus to Taipei. on our way to Yehliu, I spotted the memorial hall and took not of its location so we can go here after Yehliu.

What’s special here: Aside from seeing the statue of SYS, the memorial hall has a plaza with a great view of Taipei 101 – Taiwan’s tallest building. (No entrance fee)

Taipei 101

Directions: We just walked from SYS to Taipei 101. If you’re taking the metro though, Taipei 101 has its own station of the same name.

What to do here: See Taipei’s skyline from Taipei 101’s observatory. High end shops are also housed in the building. The famous Din Tai Fung restaurant can also be found here. Entrance Fee: TWD 500 for adults.
