Taiwan Kaohsiung Trip Part 4: Breakfast at Xing Long Ju and Cijin island

台湾 高雄 旗津半島 アイキャッチ画像


I traveled to Kaohsiung, the second largest city in Taiwan for five days and four nights in the middle of September. I was impressed by Taiwan when I visited Taipei at the end of April, and I revisited Taiwan in less than a half year. I had some difficulties in gathering information compared to Taipei, but I found there were lots of things to do in Kaohsiung as well. In this article, I will write about Cijin island as part of Day 2.

[Main Part]

The second day of my Taiwan Kaohsiung trip started. As my accommodation plan did not include breakfast, I will go out to have a breakfast.

Breakfast at Xing Long Ju

I visited Xing Long Ju to have a breakfast, which was a 15 minutes away from the hotel I stayed.Kaohsiung Xing Long Ju1

I did some research for breakfast at Kaohsiung on the Net before the trip and found Xing Long Ju was often referred to, so I decided visit it.

There was a queue, though it was before 7 a.m.""

You can pick up what you would like to eat and then even up accounts.""

I ordered Chinese omelet, Tangbao and Shentochan (edible soy milk).Kaohsiung Xing Long Ju breakfast

Go to Cijin island by ferry

In the morning of the second day of the trip, I am going to Cijin island, which is located on the west of Kaohsiung city. After breakfast, I moved to Sizihwan by MRT and walked for 10 minutes to move to Gushan Ferry Station. Then, I rode on a ferry to go to Cijin island.Kaohsiung Cijin Ferry1

That’s it for the article about Cijin island as part of Day 2 of my Taiwan Kaohsiung trip.

Cijin island is accessible from the center area of Kaohsiung city and tourists are able to feel a sense of resort island, so I recommend Cijin island as an excursion destination 🙂

In the next article, I will write about Former British Consulate and Shoushan LOVE Valentine’s Lookout as part of Day 2.
