We travelled from Taipei city to JiuFen and Shi Fen, scenic were beautiful and awesome however, the drive up the moutain and down the windy road was least expected and my friend suffered from car sickness vomitted. We arrived in the evening time and the moment we arrived the minsu, we know that this is a perfect resting place for all of us.
Before we arrived, we emailed to request for 2 single bed if not an extra bed and they responsed that most of their room consists of a queen size bed. But when we arrived, the dedicated and lovely host/ Ruiqi told us that they have upgraded us to 2 queen size bed at no extra cost. Wow! My friend and I were delighted.
The room were spacious and we love the big bathtub in the toilet. We love the view from our room overlooking the DongShan Park and the pond. We like the chatting area in the hall and we love taking pictures from every corner of this minsu.
Breakfast exceeded our expectation. The dishes were real simple but they taste great ~ Perhaps, this is what others often said simplicity is beautiful (in this case is simply delicious!). Naturally, we look forward for the next day breakfast.
This Minsu is near DongShan River water park, you can rent the bike n cycle around for free.
The room has the electric mosquitoes repellent but would suggest that you bring along mosquitoes repellent spray whenever you are outdoor.
We took a cab at night to the night market on saturaday, it's very very crowded and we did not enjoy it at all. Once we were back to the room, soaking ourselves in the large warm bath tub, compensate all.
RuiQi introduced us to Cai MaMa and she's very warm and chatty, she made us feel at home and even though it was pretty late and she has to leave for her next day excursion, she stayed behind to chat with us. We love her. We met Steven, son of Cha MaMa and he is the boss of this minsu. We love talking to them, we feel that there is a inner beauty within each of them and they speak with word of wisdom, with passion about life.... something that we can surely learn from them
