You can't not try the hot springs of Taiwan so we checked out the ones in 北投. It was also the first time the wife has ever tried a hot spring and she liked it a lot.
You get 40 minutes for two persons for spending NTD400 at the spa's slightly overpriced restaurant. We didn't bring our own towels so it was another NTD250 to buy a towel (they don't rent those for hygiene reasons).
It was the perfect thing to do on a cold winter's day.
Then we drove down to Huaxi Street Night Market for some food, pretty much snacking our way through dinner.
Looking for stuff to eat at Huaxi Night Market.
Snakes are slaughtered and cooked here for your dining pleasure.
That is a glimpse of the humongous white python on display at this restaurant.
The wife wanted to try these Japanese cakes with red bean, cheese or peanut filling. The guy took a long time to make them because he had a lot of orders to fill. But they taste good only if you eat them hot.
The wife also wanted to try this BBQ corn. It is sold from NTD50 onwards, based on weight. There are three kinds of corn to choose from. The regular yellow corn, a white corn and a black and white one.
