Our second day in Taipei ended in Raohe Night Market, I will share with you more about it in the following travel article.

We explored this very busy market, a little jampacked and also tiny compared to Ximending but we enjoyed the food! We tried a couple of meals, had milk tea, had tasted this kind of bread with peanuts in it, and more. So we went to our hotel very tired and exhausted, we had to wake up early the next day for our third-day adventure! Also, we have to catch up with the morning hotpot!


On our third day in Taipei, the group has a prescheduled tour for three spots: Yehliu Geopark, Shifen for the Lantern Experience, and Jiufen. This blog is the first of the three series.

Our group had to split into two buses because we were too many to be catered by one bus. At around eight in the morning, we all assembled in the hotel's lobby so we can all go together.

We just walked towards the metro station where our tour buses will pick us. As the tour was already prepaid by my husband's company, I had no idea how much the entire tour costs but based on my research, KKDay's tour package is worth Php 1163 per person.

We stopped at an overpass on our way to the metro! We met our tour guide who's a photographer and he speaks English well. He was a little strict in terms of the timing so we all had to be aware of our bus number and color as well as the specific time of assembly per spot.

He sure looks like Jackie Chan!
The group waiting for the bus!

It took us just approximately an hour to reach Yehliu, the view on the way there was great! We also experienced traffic by the way.

It was a coastal area thus the view was nice on our way there. We spotted some fishing villages but were surprised at the number of people around the vicinity when we arrived! There were numerous buses and it looked like this is the first spot in every tour so it is expected that these buses and people here are the same set of tourists who'll also visit both Shifen and Jiufen!

The flag that we have to follow!

The geopark is a landscape full of honeycomb and mushroom rocks eroded by the sea! You have to be aware of the surroundings, make sure not to go past the red taped border!⁠⠀

Near that hill far behind is the famous formation called Queen’s Head, there are too many tourists there and it will take hours before you could get a photo so better take advantage of its replica instead which is located near the entrance.⁠⠀

My husband, photographed by yours truly.

At my back engulfed by sea is the “Gueitou Mountain”. There are two cuestas in Yehliu, the other one is called “Big Cuesta”. ⁠

A cuesta refers to a kind of ridge featuring a stiff slope on one side and a gentle slope on the other side.⁠ Information from: ylgeopark.org.tw⁠

The replica.

Here's the replica of the Queen’s Head. This has fewer people compared to the original one but of course, you'll have to wait for hours to get a photo of it. It's better to take advantage of the replica one instead.

More photos are below:

The rock formations are indeed amazing and I believe that a few years from now, the landscapes will also change further.

The geopark has a lot of comfort room cubicles, there are also a lot of food stalls and fruit stands around, too bad we were running out of time so we didn't get to check those out.
