Xiamen people said, "One do not up the Sunlight Rock is not to Xiamen." There is a temple named “Sun Temple” along the hill in the park, behind which there is a stone steps up the mountain. And there is a stone tablet engraved with some Chinese words on it. Sunlight Rock is the best beauty spot of Gulangyu Islet, including the Sunlight Rock and the Piano Park two parts. A diameter of more than forty meters of rock on the summit of Sunlight Rock is the symbol of Xiamen.

Stacked strange rocks, natural caves, lapping waves, and verdant trees and flowers, all of these were presenting a tropical romance atmosphere. There are many wonderful types of scenery, as well as lots of stone inscriptions from ancient scholars.

On the top of Sunlight Rock there was a round desk, standing on the peak, we could overlook the beautiful scenery of Xiamen and Gulangyu Islet. Among the vast sea of clouds, there is a large bear, small bear islands. A cable car under the Sunlight Rock connected the Sunlight Rock and the Piano Park.

Strolling in Shilin Night Market

9:32 PM Unknown 0 Comments

Shilin Night Market is one of the famous night markets in Taiwan, where there are a variety of snacks attracting many people everyday. 



Most of the snacks in this market are seafood, but not lack of local Taiwan special snacks. Snacks are sweet-based, less spicy food.







Seeing is believing, as shown in the following pictures, this night market can divided into several aisles, and a number of small units, each units is a stall. Different stall has different flavor. What makes me happy most is that all the shopkeepers are happy to greet you, no matter whether you buy any snack or not.





If you eat something from the first stall, then you will satiate in the halfway. As for the price, I think it is not too expensive, but the food is good. What impressed me most is the “large intestine warp small intestine”. I remembered the stall was in the entrance of the Shihlin Night Market, most of us had bought, and each one cost ten dollars or so. Walking around down, I spent less than one thousand NTD, but had eaten a lot of snacks.

This woman told us that they rarely relaxed year around, especially in the holidays, there are more people, so they would more busy at that time. I asked whether it was too tired, but she said that it was Ok as long as they could earn more money, well, she was working for her boss.

We can see there were not many people in the aisles that day, so businesses was not very well.

This barefoot old man was sitting beside the shopkeeper.

tired but still happy





What impressed me most is this snack, which called “large intestine warp small intestine”, the stall was in the entrance of the Shihlin Night Market, most of us had bought, and each one cost ten dollars or so.

They put the grilled sausages into paper bag, most of us also bought the snacks, very delicious.
