After descending back to Syuanguang Pier, we catch the next boat ride to Yidashao Pier where there’s a few streets selling aboriginals handicraft and some local food.
A view as we are approaching Yidashao Pier.
There’s quite a number of eateries that’s closed that day. Like the one on the right, Sa Gua Mien.
A souvenir shop that’s only available around Sun Moon Lake. We got some fridge magnets for Kayden as it’s his favourite type of toys nowadays.
Eat – Wild Boar Sausage, Steamed Meat Dumpling
The Taiwanese sausage available here are made from wild boar meat instead of pork and cost NT$40 per piece.
The taste is ok and is very similar to some of the german sausages.
Auntie Chen Mochi, which cost NT$10 per piece.
There 6 flavours to choose from peanut, red bean, sesame, yam and 2 others. I’m not really a big fan of mochi so I thought the taste is so-so.
Steamed Meat Dumpling for NT$40 selling at one of the stalls around.
The steamed dumpling is very similar to our Teochew dumpling but the filling is meat instead sengkuan (Chinese Turnip). We ordered a bowl of Mee Suah as well since we only had instant noodle for lunch.
The Mee Suah taste is so-so and not as nice as the one we had at Feng Chia Night Market, but still taste better than the local franchise here in KL. At only NT$40, there’s intestines and innards that makes it interesting.
The steamed meat dumpling is nice. The filling is very flavourful but both of us do find that the layer wrapping it is a bit too thick.
After our afternoon snack, we head back to Shuishe Pier to spend the rest of the afternoon near our hotel. That’s not until we saw a lady (holding the camera here) that don’t bother to shave, so ‘geli’!
One of the best thing we did during this trip is to get a ride on these electric bike. For only NT$150 per hour, it’s quite an enjoyable experience.
Both of us gearing up for our ride. We initially wanted to rent just 1 bike but I find it difficult to balance so we ended up with 2 bikes rather than ended up with scars on our body.
Some scenic shots while we were exploring the area with the electric bike.
More scenic shots around the area. The bike is so good that we thought that it will be good if we can buy one here in KL. Anyone knows any contacts?
The main street along Sun Moon Lake, just like any other small kampung here.
Our accommodation comes with dinner and it’s pretty good with 4 dishes plus 1 soup. The owner’s mom is very accommodating as well.
Sweet & Sour Pork and Paku Choy. Very similarly done with the way we cooked it here.
Tempura Vegetables and Stir Fried Mushroom.
Although the meal is simple, it does gives us a very homey feel, it’s like we have been staying there for ages. So any of you going to Sun Moon Lake, make sure that you get to stay at least a night at Laurel Villa for their splendid hospitality.
With nothing much to do at night, we spent some time lepaking at Starbucks and enjoying the view by the lakeside.
That’s not the only thing, it’s also because I wanted to get the Starbucks Tumbler to add to my collection.
Creme Brulee Machiatto, very nice drink and it’s even available here in KL.
May pretending to read the newspaper.
We retired early as well because we wanted to catch the sunrise the day after.
