Jiu Fen, Taipei ( 台灣九份之游 )

Jiu Fen is a nice, wet and cold place. There was a famous street called 九份老街, full with local snacks and souvenir. Houses were built on the hill and formed a beautiful scenery, especially during sunset. This place is famous with "Yu Ni"(芋圓 ) - local dessert which served in hot or cold.

My friends - Sy Jinn, Nicole and I went to the very first tea house in Jiu Fen called 九份茶坊. According to the waitress, the owner of this tea house is an artist. We ordered a kind of flower tea which cost TWD1000. Wow! I know it was quite cosy, but the environment is so comfortable. It's a good place for reading and chatting with friends. If you are a good looking guy, you can even get to know some pretty Japanese girls over here! :D
