I arrived at Taichung Station at 9 pm, together with my family of four. The hotel is just about a kilometer away from the station, however, walking across several quiet streets after dark in the older part of Taichung City was not really a pleasant experience. Especially it was our first time to the city, and it was drizzling.
When we finally arrived at Fushin Hotel, we were greeted with warmth. The valet and the lady at the reception came out with umbrellas and helps us to carry our luggage. What a great relief after a long day of sightseeing and traveling from Kaohsiung.
We stayed in a Family Room with two queen beds. It was big and spacious for the four of us. The accessories provided was not luxurious, but good enough and practical. The only complain was the pillows. They are far too soft for a comfortable sleep.
The hotel's location may be rather far and inconvenient to get to the busy and glitzy city center and the famous Feng Jia Night Market 逢甲夜市, it's surrounding provides some very unique places to visitors. A short walk to Ziyou Road, you will be spoilt with choice of Taiyang Bing 太阳饼 in all sort of shapes, sizes, colors and tastes. Ziyou Road, the birth place of this renowned Taiwanese delicacy, was populated with shops selling Taiyang Bing. Ask any local taxi drivers, they would probably point you to one of the shop along Ziyou Road. The veteran may even tell you the story behind the origin of Taiyang Bing.
We checked out from the hotel after two nights of stay. It was still drizzling. Again, the hotel staff saw us off with umbrellas all the way to our taxi, with great warmth. It was a happy experience in Taichung...
