食尚玩家 is a well known taiwan food variety show. They have not only travelled around Taiwan for food but also other countries such as Korea, Europe and etc.

Finally, the best awaiting part of the whole taiwan trip is travelling to Yilan dolphin watching! We hired a private van and embarked our trip from Taipei to Yilan.

Hualien 11 Minsu [眺望雲海]

Hualien 11 Minsu [眺望雲海]

Minsu stay is very popular in Taiwan and I also recommend you to experience it yourself personally. It has a different feel from a hotel stay! More like you are almost back home.

This is the second time that I went to Taiwan and I definitely wanted to try  out minsu stay experience therefore we booked a night stay at minsu in Hualien.SOOO EXCITED…

Hualien 11 Minsu

 
I can’t remember why I didn’t take a full picture of the entrance. The minsu is inside an alley which can be a little dark. However, the distance to Ziqiang night market is quite near.

Meet the Minsu owner, Lisa (In grey T-shirt)

Don’t worry, she is very friendly so does all taiwanese ^^

The Living Room

 
It is as if we are staying in a terrace house for a night, there are a total of 4th storey if I am right!

 

Cute little display around the staircase

Going up to the room…

 

 

Are You Ready?

 
 

 

 

Room I

 
We are pretty amazed with the decorations of the room, modern & looks comfortable!
The room is similar as what we have seen on their website which is very important.Cause you don’t want to ended up getting a unsatisfied room  instead!

 

 

 

Room II

 
This room is too sweet & dreamy! There is also mosquito net by the bed to prevent mosquito from coming near you. Summer in Taiwan, there are a lot of mosquito.
And surprisingly, there is a very cute bath tub. Sadly, this isn’t my room. My room only has 1 shower head ;(
But in return…
We have a balcony!!

Gorgeous enough to capture the beautiful sights of Hualien, the mountains

Overall, we have a pleasant night in the Minsu. They have all the basic facilities however do note that they do not provide breakfast.

For my future trip to Hualien, I would love to try the minsu by the sea, Chi Sing Tan. Hualien is one beautiful city that you cannot absolutely miss out!
 
P/S: Pardon me for my slow update, I was caught up in searching for my right job. I’m still in a mist of searching, do kindly wish me luck. I need to support my passion! 
With Regards,
