那天我是下午大約兩時出發的
所以是先填飽肚子才出發
不然的話,旅程中途有可能會肚子餓啊
但在沙鹿火車站附近會有小吃攤或全家便利店

It is better to eat something first.
Otherwise, you might feel hungry during the journey.
There are some street side snacks and convenience store nearby the Shalu Railway Station.

 

第一站:沙鹿美仁里彩繪村 (1.Village Paintings in Meiren)
SUNP0057

因為那裡是一個私人的住宅地方
所以請保持安靜
雖然只有幾幅壁畫
但在出發到追分、成功站之前也可以順便去看看
(彩繪村和火車站大約相距8-10分鐘路程)

由於我那天有點趕火車
因此沒有全部都看完就走了
所以說,時間管理是很重要的

It is a private residence, so please keep quiet.
Although there are only a few paintings, you could go and have a look there before you take the railway.
It only takes you around 8-10 minute-walk to the Shalu Railway Station from there.
As I was a bit rush, I hadn’t visited all the paintings.

Time management is very important!

坐火車可以用悠遊卡
所以從沙鹿火車站到追分火車站可以用悠遊卡
不然的話到櫃台買票亦可以
但不要忘記此行目的是要得到「追分成功」的吉祥車票
所以到追分火車站時請緊記……
一定要到櫃台買從追分到成功車站的車票!
一定要到櫃台買從追分到成功車站的車票!
一定要到櫃台買從追分到成功車站的車票!
(很重要所以要說三遍XD”)

EasyCard can be used in the railway station;
Or you can buy the ticket from the counter.
However, when you arrive Zhuifen Railway Station,
Please go to the counter and buy the ticket to Chenggong Railway Station  Directly!
So that you can get the “Zhuifen→Chenggong Blessing Ticket”.
* In chinese, “Zhuifen” means “pursue”; and “Chenggong” means “success”.

 

 

第二站:追分車站 (2.Zhuifen Railway Station)SUNP0062

由於第一次坐台灣的火車,下車的時候不知道應該從哪個方向走
而且只有我一個人下車,站長沒有看到我呀 (哭)
最後自己找到路出去的時候站長問我為什麼剛才不下來
*追分站內並無設置任何的行人立體穿越設施,因此欲進出月台需在站務人員的指揮下直接跨越鐵軌。 (維基百科)

It is the first time I took Taiwan railway.

I didn’t know in which direction I should go when I got off.
The station staff had not noticed me either T__T
Eventually, the station staff asked me why I didn’t follow him when I got off. I felt so embarrassed -3-
*There are no pedestrian crossing facilities in Zhuifen Railway Station, so passengers must follow the instruction and across the tracks directly by following the station staff. (Wikipedia)

追分車站的設計帶有一點日式風格
旁邊還有一個追分許願池
求愛情求學業都可以
雖然看到池裡有很多錢幣
但是不能投錢的啊

Zhuifeng Railway Station has a Japanese style outlook.
You can find a wishing pond, named as “Zhuifeng pond”, nearby and pray for love or study here.
Although there are many coins founded inside, it is not allowed to throw into the pond.

IMG_9371

離車站幾十米外還有一個許願牆和小公園
網上資料說從車站出來的右手邊還有一個把車票做成吊飾的地方
但我那天去不知道是沒有開還是已經沒有在做了

Just few metres away, there are a wishing board and a small park.
There should also be a shop where allow tourists to make a “Blessing Ticket” key chain.
However, it seemed to be closed when I went there.

車站設有內有紀念蓋章可供遊客使用
如果等候下一班火車的時間太久
可以在這裡休息一下或寫明信片 (要先自備)
逗留大約1個小時左右就有車
這個時間間距剛剛好

In the Station, you can find some special logo stamps.
If there is so much time to kill, you can rest here or write postcard (prepared by yourself) .
I stayed for around one hour and took the next train.
This time interval is just right.

 

第三站:成功車站 (3.Chenggong Railway Station)IMG_9385

到達成功車站後
原本想坐晚一點的火車走
但發覺成功車站外面沒甚麼特別
(又可能是我沒有走到太遠)
然後就馬上坐十多分鐘後的火車到台中火車站去了

At first, I planned to take a train later.
However, I found that there is nothing special in Chenggong Railway Station.
Then, I took the train immediately.

最後成功取得「追分成功」的車票!
Finally, I got this, “Zhuifen->Chenggong” Blessing Ticket 😉

最後一站:台中火車站 (4.Taichung Railway Station)IMG_9202

 

宮原眼科 (Miyahara)

IMG_9409

相信這個景點也不用特別介紹
我比較幸運… 去到的時候不用排隊
(時間大約是下午6時)

It is a very famous place that most of the tourist guide recommended,
and you can always see a long queue there.
I was so lucky that I did not need to queue up.
(I arrived around 18:00)

聽說宮原眼科的巧克力味道是很有名
但個人來說不喜歡吃巧克力
所以選了芒果和荔枝味道冰淇淋
灑料區必試乳酪蛋糕! 超好吃的~ 極力推薦!

The chocolate flavour is very famous.
However, I don’t like chocolate flavour.
Therefore, I chose the mango and litchi flavour.
After you choose the flavour, you can get 3 extra toppings.
I highly recommend the cheese cake!
It tasted very delicious!

九個太陽 (NineSun)

另一名同是香港的小幫手極力推薦
亦是台中很有名的手信店
不然的話附近也有其他專賣太陽餅的店

It is a souvenir shop which is highly recommended by another Hong Kong helper.
It is a very famous sun cake shop;
Or there are also many Sun cake shops nearby.

另外,當天晚上還去了一間「超吉飯桶」吃晚餐
後來才知道是當地有名的餐廳
主打日式現點現做鐵板蓋飯
在宮原眼科的斜對面… 走過去不用5分鐘

Last but not least, I went to have a dinner in “超吉飯桶” .
(Sorry, I couldn’t find the English name=P)
I was told that it is also a famous chained restaurant in Taiwan after I have been there.
The main selling point is Japanese Teppanyaki.
It is located at the opposite of Miyahara, less than 5 minute-walk.
