On the way back we stopped at Jiantan 剑潭 - MRT Jiantan Station
Not going to Miramar (美丽花) think almost the same like Kaohsiung Dream mall (梦时代购物中心) ~ Day3
(Ferris wheel on the shopping mall 摩天轮)

Tips:~ from MRT station exit right, there is shuttle bus service to Miramar 美丽花 and back to Jiantan station 剑潭


Shilin 士林夜市
Located opposite
Jiantan station 剑潭, lot of locals heading that direction so just follow the crowd, and the place are quite easy to find...

Famous Haoda chicken cutlet 豪大鸡排

Toast ~ "Coffin wood" 棺材板

Super crowded on weekend, we prefer less crowd so retreated earlier and plan to revisit again maybe Monday or Tuesday...
