A few months ago, we spent a weekend at the Papago International Resort in Taitung and it turned out to be one of the best vacations I've ever had in Taiwan.
We took the train from Taipei to Taitung, which makes it a lot easier on me since driving there would have been real stressful and tiring. By car on a good day without much traffic... at least 6 hours, .
The other great thing about taking the train is I get to enjoy the beautiful scenery that the east coast has to offer.
Also, Olivia really loves the ride the train. Just look at her, she can hardly contain her excitement! :P
We arrived in Chishang (Taitung County) just before noon. Since it was almost lunch time and the area is known for their rice; the first order of business was to buy some lunch boxes.
The lunch box. There was a line-up at the store so it has to be good, right?
Right. It lived up to its billing. The rice was so good!
After lunch, we made our way to the resort. Not the best weather but at least it wasn't raining.
Our room wasn't ready, so we walked around the resort a bit to check things out. Here's Olivia pretending to taking a nap.
The resort would make a great place for outdoor weddings.
After we checked into our rooms, it was time to hit the pool!
After a couple hours playing in the pool, it was time to get back to the room.
All in a hard day's work.
