We spent the morning at 古猗园 Guyi Garden (¥12 per adult).
It appeared to be a garden where the locals gather to dance and chat. We guessed it paled in comparison to the natural beauty of 西湖 and 东湖, and we thought the artificial swans and all were really quite unnecessary. There were also a few exhibitions in some of the pavilion.

After a heavy breakfast, we figured that it was time for some walking 🙂
Despite missing the actual 여의도 봄꽃축제 Yeouido Spring Flower Festival 浦汝矣島櫻花節, which was held from 1st to 9th April this year (and it’s 10th today, haha…), we still decide to make our way there, for the pictures that we saw online suggested that the cherry blossoms were still in full bloom today.
We made our way to 여의도역 Yeouido Station 汝矣島站 (Subway Line 5/9, Station Number 526/915), and followed the signboard, choosing to walk out via Exit 3.

While at 羅東 Luodong, we must definitely make a visit to the famous 羅東夜市 Luodong Night Market!
There was a free shuttle service 羅東社區免費觀光巴士 that ran between our minsu, the night market and the train/bus stations, so this was what we took to the night market. We got off at the Police Station stop, and it was just a short walk to the night market.
