Overall, i think carton box king is pretty not bad...
Quite creative stuffs, can take quite some pictures over here.
I've spent the voucher on a something like musical box, but its not a box...
haha... dunno how to describe, but i've load the video in my instagram....
You can check out there.....

I would give a rating of 7.5/10.

Next, our driver brought us to have some dessert!
something like we see in singapore, "blackball"....

I pretty like this kinda dessert... cos i like pearls, i like yam, i like 粉圆.......

Fruity popsicle..

 photo 20130707_133801_zpsa5368227.jpg

Overall, i feel you may keep this visit if u want... cos you can view more lavenders and flowers and my next stop.... check it out more below....
Lavender cottage is pretty far... and its almost like Monceur... so just choose one of them to visit will do...
Ratings: 6.5/10.

Next stop: 中社花市
Not sure what is it called in english....

But its really really pretty... nice for wedding shoots... haha...
and the entrance fee is pretty cheap.. only NT60, about sgd $2.60?

Our driver and Us!

Overall rating for this: 9/10
I love this place... really nice .... i love flowers....
It's at Taichung... so do a short visit there for some photo taking....

There's another sightseeing place that i would like to go, but due to the past 2 days of raining....
and a little far from where we are heading next... so we did not go...
You could try next time....
It's called 高美濕地

This is the place... during low tide... you can walk along the shore...
seems prettyyy.....

So, next we headed to Taipei, to check in the hotel...
It was a 2plus hours journey....
We were sleeping all along from journey to journey.... shioks when u r being driven around....

Finally we reached our hotel around 4 to 5plus evening ......
The hotel is right in the shopping centre of ximending...
It's very convenient...And considered cheap for taiwan night stay.
$79.43 per night including breakfast.

Night stay: ECFA Hotel Wan Nian

6F., No.70, Xining S. Rd., Ximending, Taipei, Taiwan 108
