終於等到一天沒有下雨的日子出發到不能下雨去的地方觀光
(看似很複雜的句子… 有沒有看懂哈哈)
這是一個出發前要先填飽肚子的行程
不然的話中社觀光花市那邊也有烤肉區

Finally, I found a day that was not raining and thus I could   have a sightseeing~~~
You can eat something before the journey;
Or there is a barbecue area in Taichung Jhongshe Flower Marketplace.

 

第一站:中社觀光花市 (1.Taichung Jhongshe Flower Marketplace)

3月分應該是春季,而且鮮花盛開的月分
所以好想去看一下花海

我去的時候剛好是鬱金香花季
這裡是一個裝文青的好地方
適合任何年齡層人士來
家人、情侶、朋友都可以一起來放鬆
之前網上看到資料也會有人來拍婚紗照
但小心踏到濕濕的泥土,可能會弄髒鞋子
(所以不要穿新鞋啊XD)

March is one of the Spring month, and it is a month  which  the  flowers  bloom fully.
Therefore, I wanna see the beautiful flower sea.

It was tulip festival when I went there.
You could take many nice photos here.
It is suitable for all ages, including families, couples and friends to come and relax.
Some of the couples even took the wedding photos here.
Your shoes might become dirty when you stepped on the mud.
(So be careful and don’t wear new shoes XD)

現場還有烤肉區
所以真的很適合一家人來
(應該很少會有一家人到T-LIFE住吧哈哈)

There is a barbecue area.
It is really suitable for family gathering.
(But I think T-Life Hostel seldom have the whole family customers, right XP? )

▲ 用NT$10可以進入3D立體世界 (標記著「迪士尼」但為什麼是名模美女? 有點後悔沒有投幣看看-3-)
You can watch the 3D animation by inserting NT$10 (It marked “Disney“ but also marked with  “Pretty Model“. I should pay and check it!)

花海區和烤肉區都分別有收費
烤肉的話還可以免費賞花海
詳情可以直接去它的網站查詢更多資料:

If you pay for the barbecue area, you will get   free entry to the flower marketplace.

第二站:高美濕地 (2. Gaomei Wetland)

IMG_9592

早就聽說高美濕地的日落是非常美的
所以這次來台中就下定決心一定要來!

到達後第一個感覺就是:好大風!!!
但感覺很舒服
濕地步道的旁邊會看到一些寄居蟹、竹蟶(蟶子)等
應該還有其他生物… 但我不懂XP”
走到步道的盡頭就是大海了

由於那天沒有準備拖鞋去,所以就赤腳下去
但其實感覺水也很乾淨
(在濕地步道前有賣拖鞋,視乎個人需要)

Gaomei Wetland is known as the beautiful scenery with great sunset.
Therefore, I had determined I must go there this time!

When I arrived, the wind was really strong.
However, it’s  still  nice and comfortable.
You can see some hermit crabs or bamboo clam while you walk through the walkway.
There are also some other organisms which I don’t know their name XP”
At the end of the walkway is an endless sea.

As we had not prepared any flip flops, we go into the sea without any shoes.
Actually, the water is quite clean.
(At the entrance of Gaomei Wetland, there are some stores selling flip flops. Just in case you need it.)

走過大海後就回到步道坐了一陣子…… 吹吹風,看日落
但始終我去的那天比較多雲
沒有看到很壯觀的日落

但我好像每次到台灣看日落都是失敗的… Orz””

After the walk, we sat on the walkway.
Feeling the windy weather and looking at the sunset.
However, it was cloudy. I could not see a spectacular sunset.

I found that I have never succeeded in watching sunset in Taiwan… Orz”””

回程時我們是跟別人併車的
到東海商圈是NT$200   (價錢只供參考)

We are returned by taxi with other tourists.
(The taxi drivers would combine different tourists into a car.)
For reference, it costed around NT$200 to TungHai Shopping District.

 

後記:
–  其實那天我很蠢地帶著別人坐了相反方向到沙鹿火車站坐車,拜塞啦=P
–  如果有足夠時間,可以選擇到附近的梧棲觀光漁港吃海鮮
–  請注意天氣、日落時間及潮漲時間
–  結伴同行會更佳,因為這樣就有人幫你拍照而且可以互相照應
–  請查詢火車及公車的班次

Noted:
– If you have time, you can consider to go Wuci Fishery Harbor and have a seafood dinner
– Please be aware of the weather, sunset time and the tide time
– It is better to go with somebody so that he/she can take photo for you and you guys can   take care each other
– Please always check the train and bus schedule
