Trip to Jiu Fen, Kee Lung, Hot Spring Bath!


to get to Jiu Fen, we took the MRT to Taipei Main Station.
From there, we walked via the underground link to the Railway Station and bought our tickets to Rui Fang Station.

the tickets were quite cheap, around NT40++ only, can't remember the exact price.
the journey is around 50 minutes long.

we reached Rui Fang Station.
we simply followed the crowd and reached the road.
and just at the right time, the bus which goes to Jiu Fen arrived.

located near the sea, Miao Kou is indeed one of the best markets for the freshest and cheapest seafood.

on this very day itself, we also visited Bei Tou for our HotSpring Bath.

Take the MRT to Bei Tou and change to Xin Bei Tou, just one stop away.
