Leofoo Farm resort and Sanxia

It has been a long hiatus from our blog series of Taiwan adventure. I just had to complete it... 

After Taichung, we moved on to Leofoo resort. We took the train to Hsin Chu and cab over to Leofoo resort. We didn't do the Leofoo village theme park, but only a night stay at the resort. For that, I guess it didn't really excite us much. We only wanted the thrill of staying one night near the 'wild'. No doubt the kids were very excited they were going to sleep near animals, but the euphoria didn't last long before we found out it was an over priced stay with nothing much to do.

 

We were allocated a room in the Zebra wing where we had occasional visits from the giraffe and Zebra. Other than viewing the animals through our window, we were mostly lazing around till dinner time. 



The resort was  rather secluded, venturing out of the resort wasn't an option in our mind. It wasn't too bad when we only had a night in there. We settled our meals within at additional charges, which breakfast buffet was surprisingly good! Nice spread and great for kids.


Within our less than 24 hours stay, we had to fill the kids with whatever resort activities available before it really gets too bored. Activities were much sparsely scheduled, and there were more to do in the morning than afternoon. Most activities were at a fee.

We did a Chinese Storytelling and origami session on our first evening, where both activities were free. That concluded our first day.


Next day was animal feeding. We paid for the kids to feed lemurs and goats! These were the saving grace that got the kids excited and made a memorable mark.



After a morning of animals feeding, we left swiftly to our next destination - San Xia (三峽)

SanXia (三峽)
About 45 minutes cab ride from Leofoo, we stopped over here because we met some local friends for a catch up. It usually isn't a place that attracts, but it does have a good share of tourists too. Sanxia is a traditional, suburban district in New Taipei City. It is mainly known for its tourism street, known as Sanxia Old Street (三峽老街), and the Qingshui Zushi Temple (清水祖師廟, meaning Divine Ancestor Temple).






Sanxia Old Street (三峽老街) is a nostalgic and culturally rich street that was nice to stroll. It wasn't a very long street, so its one you can cover quite within an hour or two. Shops were interestingly of some old school toys, snacks, 毛笔 making etc.

It was a nice place for us to stop over for lunch. We lunched at 古井餐厅, where the food was good and much lowly priced than at Taipei City. And there really is a well in the restaurant.




After lunch, our friends brought us for some dessert at 三峽阿宗芋冰城 and cow horn buns along the street. We had a taste of their peanut ice cream wrapped in popiah skin. It was sooo good! Do try their famous cow horn buns too, and this is the particular shop that our local friends brought us to. There are a couple of similar cow horn bun shops around, but this was highly recommended. The buns come in different flavours and were really yums to eat. Best eaten when warm.




After all the adventures, we took a train back to Taipei, where we stayed a night before heading home, Singapore. With this, we complete our blog series on Taiwan travel. Perhaps, another one on Taiwan must eat. Not alot, but warrants a post!

  1. People who works there are some of the sweetest people I've met. Save yourself some time and just go there. Everyone at Chicago venues here is sweet and ask how you've been, even though normally staff keep their heads down.

  2. At the resort you will receive a warm welcome by the resort hostess or from the front desk. Usually, mostly the tourists coming to Maldives are from UK, Germany, Italy, Russia, Japan, India and the Arab Countries.best hotel near Carrollton mo

  3. With such extensive amenities, you may never want to leave your suite however, where most All Inclusive Resorts in the Caribbean offer meals, drinks some activities and non-motorized watersports; Sandals trumps them all by also including premium drinks and gourmet a la carte meals at up to 8 bars and 12 restaurants 24/7.우리카지노

  4. You have to consider what you will actually use at the resort. If you are never going to go the gym or are never going to use a spa or get spa treatments, why pay the extra money for a resort that includes all this in the price.토토사이트

  7. Aha! What a mind-blowing view. It's true that I am a stranger here but I could not help leaving my something after trailing to the end of your sweet presentation. Basically, I was hunting for finding some winter vacation destinations around the world and at the time of scrolling my mouse pointer on the web browser the title of article drew my attention. Finally clicked on and discovered me into your adventurous Taiwan Adventurous Zone. It was absolutely a brilliant and tempting experience. I was pretty much charmed with the whole details of the trip. Though I had not learnt before about Leofoo Resort and the traditional Sanzia, diving into your lovely description, my joys knew no bound. The big house overview, zebra wing, palatable food and recipes and other captivating images also were so thrilling. I appreciate your lovely work sure.

  8. Hill stations top the list of tourist destinations of Kerala. These locations are to provide you a relief from the heat of the sun. The resorts of Munnar, resorts of Thekkady and Wayanad resorts, would give you the much-needed rest.먹튀검증

  16. In 2009, Jenson Button won the Formula 1 Championship for Brawn. Brawn would also win the Constructors Championship that year. It was a remarkable double for Brawn, who hadn’t existed before, and wouldn’t exist the year after.

  17. We’re starting with what can be best depicted as a mixture of some of the prettiest springtime blooms (think Poppies, roses and lilies) and what looks like an impressionist painting! IGT’s Bloom slot is quite impressive from the bright and colourful graphics right down to the fact that during the Free Spin round you can choose your own selection of Free Spins

  26. I'm a photographer, and while creating a series of landscapes and portraits of a small, overlooked Chinese community living in the region, I learned how Asian Americans in the South have managed to navigate -- socially and economically -- a landscape that was blatantly exclusionary and deeply rooted in racial segregation.
