With everything (including accommodation) arranged by the local travel agency, we stayed in different cities, different hotels every night, except the last two nights of our vacation.

Day 1: Park Hotel @ Taoyuan

The hotel lobby is on the 10th floor of this building, the restaurant is on the 10th floor and our rooms are on the 10th floor too!

Day 2: Na Lu Wan Hotel @ Hualien

The hotel is creatively filled with aboriginal crafts, paintings and decorations with each room distinctively designed in different aboriginal styles. I really liked the combination of vivid colors used in their decoration!

Complimentary coffee and tea-making facilities

Day 3: Master Bear Resort @ Taitung

I took so many pictures while I was here! So, I'll write about it in a separate post.

Day 4: Best Hotel @ Kaohsiung

I can't remember much about this hotel except that the room has two queen-sized beds!

Day 5: Wen Won Hotel @ Taichung

The hotel occupies level 3 and 5 of a small commercial building, which also houses a pharmacy, Toys R Us, etc. Strange combination of occupants but I guess this is Taiwan! Oh, and there is a McDonald's downstairs.

OMG I just realized something... there was no window in our room!

Day 6 & 7: King National Hotel @ Taipei

Okay, I just realized I didn't take any pictures of the room too. Anyway, I'll also write about this hotel in a separate post.

Being on the move constantly and sleeping in a different bed every night may take its toll on the enjoyment of your vacation, but I was dead tired from sightseeing/shopping all day so I had no problem falling asleep at all! As soon as I got to my hotel room, I unpacked a bit, took a warm bath, collapsed on the bed and slept like a log.

I didn't even bother to...
- turn on the TV
- make coffee or tea
- ask my mom to take pictures of me (my mom and I shared a hotel room)
- check out the view from my hotel room
- check out the hotel interior
- enjoy full use of the hotel's facilities and free Wi-Fi

What mattered most to me? Clean and comfortable bed, clean bathroom and thick fresh towels, and get a good night's sleep!

The following morning, the phone rang at 6am. It was our wake up call #fml. I awoke refreshed, showered, packed my suitcase, and headed down to the breakfast buffet and then ready to be herded like sheep from one destination to another.
