HOTEL REVIEW: The Funny Lion

I rarely write reviews about the hotels that we stayed in (maybe because they’re mostly just budget hotels lol) but The Funny Lion is definitely an exception! I felt that I needed to write about our experience here because we actually didn’t want to leave the hotel. lol

Hotel Grounds/Services

The check-in was a breeze. Their lobby was un-airconditioned and open, and it was just so refreshing to see such a sight. Nice hotels usually have airconditioned and high ceiling lobbies but The Funny Lion’s lobby was quite unique. Sorry, I wasn’t able to take a photo of it because I only go there to connect to the wifi. lol (P.S. Their wifi is quite bad and there was no LTE signal inside our room.)

The hotel has two buildings, and this one is facing the pool. Our room was on the lower left side of the building in the photo below so it was really cool to have the pool just outside our room.

Yehliu Geopark, Taiwan

March 11, 2017

On our second day in Taiwan, we visited the Yehliu Geopark! I think this was one of the highlights of our entire trip. I’m not entirely sure how this natural beauty came to be but it’s just amazing to know that they were made out of natural causes.

We rode the bus to the Taipei Main Station from our airbnb apt and got on the Kee Keong Bus No. 1815. The stop for this one is located outside of the station, near the east gate. Once you enter the bus, you will receive a purple card from the driver. Payment will be made once you arrive at your destination. The bus ride costs NT 96 and the ride took about an hour.
