1 Moon World Landscape Park

Tianliao Moon World Park is a natural formation of terrain geographically called “badlands”, caused by rain and stream erosion over the years. The landscape looks like the surface of the moon, hereby its name Moon World.

Moon World Park

 

It isn’t easy to get to the Moon World Park because it’s located in the suburban area. So unless you hire a taxi or join a tour group, expect some challenges and delays along the way.

If you prefer to commute, you can take the MRT to Gangshan South which is the end station and then take a bus to the park.

Heading to Dream Mall

 

It’s the largest mall in Taiwan and in East Asia so it’s something that you shouldn’t miss. Inside the mall are local and international brands combined. At the food court, choices vary from Asian to International cuisines.

Inside of Dream Mall

 

A band was playing outside the mall when we came. I was happy to witness a local Taiwanese band rocking their music.

I believe this is a famous Taiwanese fast food, TKK. I loved their sweet potato fries.
