Yang Ming Shan National Park

Start my Yang Ming Shan trip with Qing tian gang grassland on an amazing clear sky day. What a great way to start my day with such a beautiful and vibrant scenery. Ohh and beware of buffalo if you step on grass area. 

Leng Shui Keng although translated into English as cold water pit, the hot springs at Lengshuikeng are still quite hot, albeit cooler than others in the area, making visiting the area great for those curious about hot springs without siting in 40°C water.

Xiao You Keng is a beautiful scenery as post-volcanic geological landscape area.

Stop for a lunch break at Miau Ban garden. Ferns & Steamed Fish – Both menu are local delicacy. Extremely fresh and sweet fish. Fern texture are quite interesting. Not much seasoning though

Beitou

Gudetama cafe are closed. I am kind of disappointed. Ended up having dinner at Din Tai Fung instead. The food are just amazing and their service are on point.

Tri Tôn

Vietnam is famous as a tourist destination as a vibrant, dynamic south-east Asian country. I have traveled from Ho Chi Min city to Tri Tôn in the southern part of Vietnam. Starting my trip with delicious and full of flavor Beef Pho near my hotel.

Ciao hotel is convenient and close to the airport since I have to catch an early flight in the morning.

Arrived in Rag Gia and had my breakfast at Boulevard cafe. Bánh mì with Pate and sauce on hot plate with outside crispy and soft inside Baguette is such an enjoying way to start my morning.

Hồ đá đồi Tà Pạ is one of the most scenery tourist attraction in Tri Tôn. The landscape were shaped by dynamite explosion in order to extract gravel. I have observed that this place mostly consist of local tourist in Vietnam.
