This trip is mainly to Yilan Taiping Mountain. The driver Xiao Gao is very caring, knowing that there are not many food choices on the mountain, so he helps prepare Chinese food in advance. Back in the city, I took us everywhere to buy authentic Yilan specialty products, which were very delicious. Very happy day trip.

The hand-cranked milk DIY experience activity is about 30-40 minutes. Most of the time for the explanation is to introduce the Yilan Qiliwan Zhennii Cultural Center. The actual hand-cranked milk DIY experience is simplified. You can bring back the cup as a souvenir after DIY. Drink it, using sugar-free creamer powder, so even those who don’t drink sweets can make a sugar-free healthy pearl milk tea hand shake drink!

The first choice for Yubei attractions in Yilan~ The toilet is clean, small and beautiful. Friends who like cars can spend a lot of time here. Children can also play bumper cars. There are slides and swings outside the museum. It's also sincere, and the kids are very happy! klook is very convenient to buy a ticket and use it immediately. I hope everyone will support the local museum with heart~

It is very convenient to order tickets for the Arts Center through Klook. It saves time in queuing and scans the QR code for the staff to enter the park. This time I came to Yilan to be fortunate to have come to Chuanyi Center. After reading the introduction of Nanbeiguan, it is hard to see this traditional activity in modern society. The performance of Princess Gomeran is even more beautiful. It is worth taking a family to the park to visit the performance.

As a Yilan native, I was still not very sure about the road conditions of Taiping Mountain, so I took part in the Klook tour. The tour guide Mr. Chen has a good service attitude and will guide and take pictures. He carefully counts every time and on the way. You can go to the toilet every rest time. The bumpy road on the mountain still makes people feel comfortable. I was lucky to visit Cuifeng Lake today. The weather is very good. I heard from the mountain friends that it was raining the night before. The lake on the water is the same as 10 years ago. There is a big difference in the amount of water. After noon, it started to fog and the weather began to cool down and light rain began. Seeing that the Qing Trail is beautiful and recommended, I am very happy to be able to participate in such a journey in Taiwan. It is a great experience.
