Travel adventures: Yilan

We had to stay in the country over Chinese New Years so we went off to Yilan for a 2 night stay.

Yilan is very easy to get to from Taipei. We took the 9028B Luodong bus at the MTC Bus at Dapinglin station. From exit 1 (handicap accessible) or exit 4, head north and you'll run into the bus station with the green buses. We took this bus as we were staying at a Minsu (home stay) that's like a bed and breakfast in other parts of the world that was located close to the Luodong night market and the forestry park.

Here they are at the home stay

We went to the forestry park

We also took them to the kids friendly restaurant across from the park.

I think the kids had a great time.
