June 30-July 1, 2015. Yizhong Street, Shin Kong Mitsukoshi, Top City Department Store, and Taoyuan International Airport.
How I got there: Yizhong Street: Buses 88 or 86 to NTCUST
Shin Kong Mitsukoshi & Top City Dept. Store: Bus 5 or 33
Since we had a long day on the 29th, we decided to make our 30th more relaxed. In the morning, we went back to Providence University because I had to retrieve the deposit I paid for my dorm (hehe $550). We had lunch at NU Pasta (we also ate there when we went to my school for the first time), then headed to Yizhong Street to do some shopping and buy some street food. (My back was dying from pain huhuhuhu.) When it was getting late, we went back to our hotel, then went again to Fengjia Night Market. We always went to Fengjia because it was very near our hotel. Hehehe. End of June 30.
July 1 is our last day!! We needed to check out at 11:30 AM so we had to leave our hotel room. Nonetheless, the hotel staff were very kind and they allowed us to leave our bags there first so we could waste our time waiting for our 10:30 PM flight. So, we went to Shin Kong Mitsukoshi and Top City Department Store. Department stores in Taiwan sell very expensive things so we didn’t stay long.
At around 2:30 PM, we decided to just go to Taoyuan International Airport and wait there. We went back to the hotel, took our bags, rode 2 taxis, then went to the UBus station. The bus ride was around 2-3 hours. So we still had around 5 hours to waste at the airport. We spent our time eating, watching anime, surfing the net, and buying stuff. We also used all our EasyCard loads and bought more pasalubong in OK Mart.
Our flight was delayed for a few minutes so we arrived in Manila at 1 AM, July 2. My JTA journey was an awesome experience. I am going to miss it so much.
