Hello hello! It's nearly 1.5 months since the last time I wrote something here and I'm back now! I was and am very busy spending my time with family, work, travels and friends. So so sorry, guys! Tons of pictures from my 9D8N Taiwan trip over the last July will be up here gradually from today on. So here we go for the 1st part of my travelogues. 16th July 2015 : The trip was started on 16th July 2015 9.35pm flight from Medan to KLIA, Malaysia. Flight to KL with Air Asia was pretty good, we reached KL at around 11.35pm and off we proceeded to Sama-Sama Hotel in KLIA after the luggages pick up. Room in Sama-Sama Hotel was spacious and great. Still looking new with everything very well maintained. We were supposedly to hop on KLIA express which is serving from KLIA2 to KLIA and vice versa (train fare is just MYR.2), then take the buggy to the hotel. But too bad, the said KLIA express is not available after 12am. For instead, we took a cab to reach the hotel. It was not that far, but it also was not in walking distance. Taxi fare costed us MYR.50, btw. Below are the pictures of Sama-Sama Hotel. We were contented with the stay there.
17th July 2015 : The flight to Taipei was at 3.20pm, so we still have ample of time before leaving for Taipei. Presenting to you the fastest and easiest way to reach KLIA, BUGGY RIDE provided by Sama-Sama Hotel! LOL. It was quite an experience!
Reached KLIA quite early as we expected to taking a stroll around the shops. But the check-in time was still a few hours away. All I wanted for that morning was only BURGER KING, the best burger in my very own dictionary. Whopper, here I came for you! Savory fire-grilled beef topped with juicy tomatoes, fresh cut lettuce, creamy mayonnaise, crunchy pickles inside the soft buns. Satisfied!
We then continued our food journey in the Food Court located at 2nd floor of KLIA. This was one of the 2 other kinds of meal my family had, and this tasted pretty good with its sweet savory sauce over the chicken.
A while after the lunch, check-in counter was finally open. We met our friendly and helpful tour guide to proceed the baggage drop off and boarding pass. Flight was on time and it was a pleasant journey flying with Eva Airways, their service was excellent. All of the flight attendants were very pretty, caring, loving and most importantly, well-mannered. Food on board was delicious as well. Although the seat was a tad too small for my needs, I’m still a happy economy class passenger. Dear Eva Airways, thank you for taking care of us during the 4hrs flight to and fro Taipei. I miss on board meal now! OMG!
4.5 hrs passed by and we finally arrived at our first destination, Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport. Airport was clean and easy to navigate (actually the utmost reason was we have a tour guide with us! lol). An air-conditioned bus with 25 seaters had been waiting for us outside the airport to transfer us to Tao Garden Hotel in Taoyuan. A very good hotel. We felt very tired, but the room was above our expectation. Comfy bed with nice linens and awesome bath tub too! I will come back again with our first day’s exploration of Taiwan. Pls stay tuned with us here for more updates! Ciao and happy weekend!
