Distant Between Taipei and Tainan

Taiwan Train Ticket, Taipei to Tainan

My first trip to Tainan City was on 19th December 2011. Tainan City is located at the Southern part of Taiwan.

If you were to fly straight across those rolling mountains in the central plain, the distant between Taipei and Tainan is close to 260km.distant between Taipei and Tainan

Having stayed in Taipei for 8 months, never have I thought of traveling to Tainan city. Anyhow, I did it.

Traveling to visit places-of-interest and traveling to make-a-living, exert one’s source of energy differently.

One of the best infrastructure for land transportation is traveling by train. With the railway route by Western Line, distant will be slightly longer. Usually it takes about 4 hours per trip.

Tze-Chiang Trains are class of modern trains operated by the Taiwan Railways Administration (TRA). The cabins are clean and air-conditioned. Tickets are relatively affordable.

Worth having a ride during the day to enjoy the scenic view passing rice fields of rural Taiwan and green mountains on the far left.

One impression intrigues me while looking at the outline of Taiwan; the island resembles an inverted banana fruit.

After breakfast, I headed straight to Tainan train station, and bought a train ticket.

Setting off as per plan, to a small town located in the northern region of Tainan County, HouBi District (後壁區), approximately 40km from the Tainan City.

HouBi District is a plane farm area, suitable for agricultural crops. And with remarkable geographical features, it is also the best spot for growing orchid flowers.

Inhibited with 26,002 people living in an area of 71 km². These data from Wiki computed to have a population density equivalent to 3 person standing in an international soccer field!

Located in GuanZiLing scenic area of HouBi District, the most well-known activity happening here is its hot spring and mud spa. It is one of the 3 places in the world who naturally-gifted land with mud spa.

If you want to enjoy a relaxing mud spa in quiet solitude, don’t miss this spot. However, as this particular week, HouBi District has a totally different attraction.

Taiwan is holding the most colorful flower exhibition. Starting from 3rd to 11th of March 2012, Taiwan International Orchid Show 2012 will showcase it’s most prestigious galleries with endless series of beauteous orchid flowers.

The theme for this year is “New Orchid, New Vision“. It also include other countries like Germany, United States, Malaysia, Thailand, Japan.

You will be overwhelmed by different spices of orchids you can see in this place. No where else, but in Taiwan International Orchid Show 2012.

The orchid displays are breathtaking! An eye-opener for one who can never imagine orchid has such a wide variety of species.

Here are some of the shots taken at Taiwan International Orchid Show 2012.

29th Feb 2012, Let’s Start to Write!

Let's Start To Write

The first post published on 4th January was a mundane declaration. Obviously, it not by me. It was pressed by the most popular blog WordPress.org.Let's Start To Write

For every new installation to any domain, “Hello World!” signify the birth of a new blog into world wide web online blogosphere.

The post was nothing too splendid, as if like throwing a hilarious form-party at the beach to celebrate Christmas Day.

And no splashes of colorful fireworks on the sky to welcome the jubilicious New Year 2012.

Like what I have just said, ‘a mundane declaration’ by WordPress.org, and by default.

Another similar example for geeks to be greeted by message of “Hello World!” is learning programming language. The first lesson often goes along with the first programming example or exercise.

So being simple-looking with a short message from “Hello World!”, most new bloggers certainly accept the post gladly.

This blog http://RedFlamy.com hasn’t been publishing any post for the past 55 days.

Today is 29th February 2012. It’s a leap day in the Gregorian calendar. Only happens once in every 4 years.

If my first post written by me was not published today, I would have to wait for another 4 years to mark an eventful day on this blog.

Just like a common phrase from the Bible, Creator say ”Let there be light. And there shall by light.”.

So the same goes to my first post of my blog, by saying “Let’s start to write, content of great insights!”

Somehow it rhythms perfectly. Please allow me to repeat,

Let there be light, and there shall be light!”

Let’s start to write, content of great insights!”

Thank you!
