After a hearty breakfast of porridge, bread and jam, we loaded up the car for our last leg of our cross country trip to Taichung on the West Coast for our journey back to the capital by THSR, Taiwan High Speed Railway aka Keretapi Peluru.
Subsequently, the company dropped us off at the Taichung THSR station. Originally, our journey back to Taipei was supposed to depart at 3pm but we have it changed to 1pm since we were early. The journey from Taichung to Taipei by bullet train was 1 hour.
After we checked in to Go Sleep Xining also in Ximending, we spent the afternoon exploring the shopping area at the basement of the main Taiwan Railway Station.
|We always make an effort to try the KFC in different countries. The girls quite like their version of Hot n Spicy.|

Slept until later in the morning after 5 exciting but tiring days. On the way to Ximen station, we came across the iconic 'Red House'.
From Ximen station, we took the blue line to Houshanpi station. Wufenpu is an area best known for wholesale garment especially women fashion wear.
When we reached there at about 11 am, all the stores have yet to open. After asking some local people there, apprently it only comes to life after 2pm!
