Taiwan Day 15: Bihu Park and Miramar

Day Fifteen

I read online that Neihu is a region of Taipei City that is not yet discovered by many tourists so I suggested to friends that we visit it, specifically Bihu Park. We took the MRT to Wende Station and walked out of Exit 1. To head to Bihu Park, walk straight from the exit and turn right at the first traffic light then continue walking until you hit the park.

The description I read online about Bihu park made it seem larger than what we saw when we got there. It was a small lake with many elderly men fishing in it and some hiking trails on the hill.

It was quite hot and sunny at the park so we didn't stay for long. We took the MRT back to Jiannan Road Station where the big shopping centre, Miramar is. On the train we saw this artistic looking building so we went to take a look.

Turns out that it was a restaurant with very cool interior design and a pricier menu than the typical restaurant in Taiwan.

Back at Miramar, we went to the top floor to take a photo with the ferris wheel in the daytime but we didn't go on yet because we wanted to enjoy the night view.

Tonight's dinner at Saizeriya is my first Western cuisine meal in Taiwan and I missed it very much! Taiwanese food is delicious but after awhile I miss trying out different cuisines like I do back home.

The ferris wheel really is a lot more beautiful at night! Adult price on weekends is NT200 but I paid  concession price of NT150 after I showed my university student card. The entire ride is 17 minutes long but it felt faster than that!
