Wulai: Volando Spring Spa & Resort 馥蘭朵烏來度假酒店 Hot Spring

Volando Spring Spa & Resort  is one of the best thing for my Taiwan trip at Wulai!

For my previous trip, I did went to a free hot spring at beitou provided to us by our travel agency. However we were unsatisfied about it as we did not manage to feel the shoikness.

Luckily, I came upon some recommendation on the magazine about Wulai hot spring in Taiwan & was so eager to try it out.

 We went to Wulai on a weekend and the bus was very crowded and I had to hook my hands on the handrail and swing around with the bus while trying to capture the prefect shot (Can imagine?)
This was the 2nd time I went to Wulai yet I still can’t help being captivated with the natural beautiful scenery of Wulai

It was the 1st time I went to Volando Spring spa & resort therefore I was unsure where we should alight and we eventually missed the stop. We only saw it after we have passed it T.T

The Best of Hualien: Taroko National Park (Taroko Gorge)

Hualien: Ziqiang Night Market

Hualien: Ziqiang Night Market

Ziqiang night market is one of the popular night market in Hualien. Nanbin night market is another popular one but we are only staying in Hualien for a night so we didn’t have the chance to go there.
If you would like to compare Ziqiang night market with Taipei night market such as Shilin night market, Shi da night market and Raohe night market they are incomparable.
Honestly speaking, I find Ziqiang night market has lesser variety of delicacy however definitely it was an awesome experience for me because they still sell delicious food and beautiful scenery to see while you are hunting Ziqiang night market.

Take a minute to enjoy this gorgeous sunset~

Taiwan has really huge watermelon!

I have seen watermelon larger than this in Taiwan.

Taiwan Local Delicacy

 
Some of the food that I have tried and I also did some homework before on the MUST TRY food in Ziqiang night Market!

They are surely mouth watering plus confirm long queue, no joke.

1.  第一家烤肉串

They are selling from mushrooms, beacons to meat such as chicken, beef, duck, tempura and etc!

It is really worthy to try!  From what I remember, they are really tasty expect the tempura maybe because that was the first time I ate. 

Be aware to expect for some crowd but waiting time not too long. 

2. 妙不可言” 果汁店


                                     
After some BBQ, let’s have some fruit juice
Someone told me it is a MUST to have Papaya Milk in Hualien!
I tell you it is damn super damn delicious and I cannot forget the thickness~
I need a cup of Papaya Milk right now!!
What I can ask for more in that moment? Breathtaking view with such yummy Papaya Milk <3

3. Ling Ji Corn BBQ

To order for your corn, you will need to choose your own corn. The corn comes in different sizes, some big and small so you may choose your corn according to your preferences.
The next step is to weigh the corn at the cashier and pay up. Then they will grill the corn for you!

The corn was quite chewy but I don’t like corn that much.

P/S: Pray Hard I’m able to support my passion for Travel, it might be difficult now but I believe it will get better. Fighting FEL!
