Another day to watch the sunrise but we chose to sleep more... Hahaha, we were quite tired waking up early for the past two days, so we were trying to catch up with our beauty sleep…
Breakfast was as usual and we wanted to go to the Old England Manor Cingjing to take some photographs before our booked taxi arrived at 11 am. The Old England Manor is just a few minutes walk downhill from Sunnydale Minsu.
I was wondering whether this Old England Manor is a Minsu or hotel. You can drop me notes on this. Anyway, I would assume this is a Minsu. The security was quite tight at this Minsu. I presumed that since it is the most expensive Minsu in Cingjingand, it is trying to step up security and offer exclusivity to its guests.
We went in to take some photographs and when we just about to leave, the cleaner actually asked us whether we were staying at the Minsu and what were our room numbers. We quickly left without saying anything. So if you want to take some photographs of the Old England Minsu, please be discreet and quietly take your photographs. The other way to take some photos there will be to have afternoon tea there. Since you are a customer there, I think it is ok to take some photos.

We went back to Sunnydale Minsu at 10.45am and checked out (check-out time is 11am). The taxi was already waiting for us and we set off for Taichung at 11am. You can enjoy the scenic views along the way downhill…
The journey to Fengjia area, Taichung was about 2hrs 20mins when a toilet break along the way (Taxi was getting a refill at the petrol kiosk). We reached the Becon Hotel at Fengjia at about 1.20pm, check in time is again at 3pm. So, we decided to rest a bit at the hotel lobby which is at level 12 before going around the area to search for food...
|Goodbye Sunnydale Minsu...|
Just a few metres' walk down the hotel, there was this Dong Dah Steaks (东大牛排). It was cheap and for NT180, you could have a wide variety of salad, ice-cream, sides and more… Definitely value for money!
