Family gathering is always exciting to me! Cousins and I spent a weekend in a hotel for one cousin's birthday. The hotel we stayed was Hotel Ocean Vista & Spa, a hotel located near the Green Bay in Taiwan's north coast. This hotel is famous of its nice view and BIG room. The room we had was for 4 persons with 2 bed room and one HUGE bathroom with shower, jacuzzi, and a steam room.
You will be surprised by their huge rooms and luxurious decoration at the first sight. But after looking into detail, you will find they are just like a county girl with heavy cosmetic. Anyway, we did have fun there and enjoyed their hospitality.
During the I-Lan trip, we visited the Luodong Forestry District Office. There are some old trains used to carry passengers and logs in forest. Now they are retired from daily service, so just displayed as a part of history in Taiwan.
This was my second time to visit this hotel; it was because of my wife's company employees' tour. Hotel Royal Chiao Hsi is so popular, so they had to book this trip in March. Though the rate is higher than other hotels in this area, they serve the best quality service, no matter room, food and facilities. If you are a hot spring lover, don't miss it! You will have an unforgettable experience.
