We specially asked Danny and team for staying in 东游季 until 12, instead of the original planning of 10.

So, we changed our itinerary not he spot again.  

The journey from 台东 to 垦丁 is about  2 1/2 hours to 3 hours.

OK.  It is time to take the hilly road.  Road 199.  

And I just check my google, it is in the middle of no where.  Because the trees are too tall and they cover the road.

When you turn off the satellite, the Road 199 shows there.  Hmmm… interesting..

Along the road, we saw these fantastic native drawings...

Back to the story...

We celebrate Justin So’s father and Justin Yoon’s Grandma birthday.  The tour guides came to me and said there are two people birthday, so they bought two cakes for them. very thoughtful.  I did not even thought about that.  Thanks Danny and team for the arrangement.

Next, we spend 2-3 hours at 垦丁大街.

IMG 5178

Eating junk food.

IMG 5179

I don’t think it is a children friendly place at all.  The cars, van and buses is still driving on the road.  And there is so little space for pedestrian to walk.  

IMG 5192

Really junk food.

IMG 5183

Eating ice cream.

IMG 5187

I found myself a Ramen stall, and sit down and enjoy my Ramen.
