What is Train Travel like in Taiwan | High Speed Trains from Kaohsiung to Taichung

We are leaving Kaohsiung and jumping on the bullet high speed train towards our final spot here in Tawain – Taichung.

Honestly it is super easy to use the trains here in Taiwan – cheap and so simple to just jump on and off – highly recommend using them during your trip.

When we arrived in Taichung we found out that the birthplace of Bubble Tea is right next to our hotel – so we headed out to Chun Shui Tang (the original store) to try our favourite drink in Taiwan – Milk Bubble tea.

Before being able to check into our hotel we headed out to the beautiful Taichung park, where we rented some row boats…which we failed at!

Next up Jess had to take us to the busiest dumpling store we have ever been to…Din Tai Fung to try the famous Xiao Long Bao – soo good!!

We then ended our night checking into our hotel :)…one more Taiwan vlog 🙁

    Although Taiwan is a small island, but we have 268 mountains that over 3000 meters high 😮 and because of adequate rainfalls, we have lots and lots of waterfalls to be explored 🙂

    It's not sure if the birth place of bubble tea is Tainan or Taichung. If you ask me, I'd say Tainan. Since no one got the patent, it's hard to come to a conclusion.

    I grew up close to that park in Taichung 40+ years ago. You used to be able to row under the pavilions, then somehow the water level got raised.  There was also this really old tree and a bronze statue of the horse in the park we kids could climb on.  Not sure if there anymore.  Nostaliga.  Miss Taiwan.  *cry*.
