Trip to Taiwan(台湾)with old Friend;


My old friend invited me to the trip to Taiwan

She hoped to have the first experience to a foreign country where is not so far and requires less than a week.  We could enjoy other Asian atmosphere♪  I was so fascinated by the varieties of "orchid" flowers which I put for my blog name, as I happened to be gifted pretty potted one when I started blogging.

*Man Mo Temple 文武廊*  

*Lianchi tan 蓮池  and    寿山公園(The  Park of Longevity Mountain) *

We got inside from their mouths. 


Lucky to be able to find herons and a squirrel (^.^


The Tree below is called "Chinese Banyan"

*Caihongjuancun  蓮彩虹拳村*

I bought "ocarina"  for my husband as a souvenir. 

*The Grand Hotel Taipei  圓山大飯店*

           The GORGEOUS hotel for a tour trip where we stayed for the last day.

          This huge FANTASTIC yellow orchid caught my eye ♡♡♡ 


*National Revolutionary Martyrs' Shrine 国民革命忠烈祠*

                     The Ceremony of the changing of the Guard.



Wishing you’ll have a wonderful coming weekend.
Hope to start visiting you soon;

How great you visited Taiwan! I've never been there but would love to go some day. I've heard the food there are pretty good :-)
I enjoyed your colorful photos. The buildings, decorations, etc are very colorful! And the details are amazing! Especially the Grand Hotel Taipei. What a beautiful place to stay!
Lot of gorgeous orchid flowers. I wonder if Taiwan is a big orchid grower.
Thank you for sharing your stunning photos, Miyako san :-)

Delightful to see Taiwan through your eyes. Loved entering through the mouths of the "beasts"! What a surprise! And the orchid -- wow! Your friend might be willing to travel further next time. Happy Monday!

Wow, this is the most perfect orchid I have ever seen Miyako! Than the tree - very interesting -I've never seen. You make me smile, even abroad you find birds:):) Many thanks for sharing Taiwan with us at ALL SEASONS!
Not to forget: I see the changing of the guard at the palace - remind me, does Taiwan have a (previous?) royal family? Enjoy your week:)
