  • From Taipei to go by bus to deep mine old town, from which also went by the pingsi line & bus routes. The pingsi line is local to the atmosphere, so take a taxi the random is 1 hour in 2-car train train much so quite inconvenient in. Summer vacation for the Taiwan people and the very crowded on the part of Taiwan. I was surprised because I'm too busy, another Lantern goes up so nice. Along with diet, has bought a lantern on the same street. On the street and had shops, many food and fun. Raise the lanterns on the tracks, but the train will come and choose-up and also avoid at all interesting. Watermelon juice bought at the station on a very hot day! Events raise a lantern and streets and trains on nostalgic, very nice, but crowded and pingsi line ahead of Super crowded, so go to Rui Fang station is required to be prepared. Ride time and slow speeds, so put up with time.
