We stayed at the Green World Songshan in Taiwan, a cozy chain hotel conveniently positioned just a few doors down from the Houshanpi MRT station. Located on the street brimming with local eateries, it offers a leisurely 15-minute walk to the lively Raohe Street Night Market and is a mere 3 km away from the iconic Taipei 101 skyscraper.

I really dislike group tours, whether it’s in Taipei or anywhere else. The idea of being part of a group, traveling with strangers, makes me feel uneasy. However, private tours are often expensive, which adds to my frustration. So, when I found a tour on Klook that covered all the places I wanted to visit in Taipei, and it was affordable at 41,000 KRW or $31 USD per person, I had to make a compromise. Despite my dislike for group tours, I decided to book it because I didn’t want to spend more money that could be used for another trip. It wasn’t ideal, but I had to go with it. So I booked the tour to Yehliu Geopark, Jiufen, Shifen, and the Golden Waterfalls for the day after tomorrow.
