Taipei Charm: Rustic Countryside Jiufen and Shifen
This day we decided to visit Shifen 十分 and Jiufen 九分, famed for its nature and rustic country side. The way to get there can be really confusing. It is possible to visit both places within one day though I’d prefer to stay a night in Jiufen so I could spend a full day in each place.
Taichung jazz festival in the autumn
Coincidentally the annual Taichung Jazz Festival is in its second day in Taichung. We were told that Taichung’s weather make a good locale for outdoor events since it doesn’t rain as much as Taipei. Imagine listening to beautiful jazz music in cool autumn weather.
