At 3.40pm, we asked the hotel staff to book a taxi to the Lavender Cottage. At 3.50pm, we boarded the taxi to the Lavender Cottage. We were quoted NT2000 for to and fro the Lavender Cottage. It was actually NT900 to the place but we requested for the taxi driver to bring us back to the Hotel and was quoted NT2000 for the round trip. It was quite a scary ride as the roads to the Lavender Cottage were very narrow (only one vehicle is able to pass) and the taxi driver was driving very fast.
We reached the place at 4.55pm (about 1 hour journey). We bought the tickets, NT100 per pax but came with NT50 x 2 vouchers which could be redeemed with purchase. We bought 2 ice-creams at NT50 each.

At 7.20pm, we reached our Hotel.
At 8.15pm, we went to Fengjia for dinner and then continued shopping... The Fengjia night market is just right beside our hotel. It is also near to the Fengjia university. As it is near to the university, you can see a lot of young people gathered in this night market. There are many food that you can try and things that you can bargain and buy. But try to be nice when you are bargaining, you will get better discount.

This queue was for the 大肠包小肠. There were two stalls that claimed that they are the first original vendor. I just joined the queue that was fast-moving as I didn't want to waste my time queuing up. I guessed both tastes should be almost the same and I bet that I wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

This is quite filling and I recommend that you try this last or share with your friends or family members. Unless you are very hungry, you should be able to eat it by yourself.
There are many cute helmets here. You can buy one for your children when you are riding a bicycle.
