After lunch, we continued our journey to Hualien. Along the way, we stopped briefly at Nanfang'ao, a small coastal fishing town in southeastern Yilan. Most tourists stop here to visit the three-storey Nan Tien Temple, one of the most famous Mazu (Goddess of the Sea) temples in Taiwan.


It's believed that the Goddess originated with the deification of a young woman had supernatural powers, and after her death, she became immortalized as a protector of fishermen and other seafarers.

However, visiting temples have never been our cup of tea or coffee or whatever, so my family and I opted not to go inside at all. We walked around the town, looked in a few shops and grabbed a cool treat!







#8 Thin, crispy crepes filled with ice cream and crushed peanuts. Why are things so tasty when they're stuffed into a rolled wrapping!? Smiley

#9 A small cafe where we chilled-out and had some drinks, but I can't remember exactly what we ordered.

#10 "hard job for a nice tea" - Hmmm... *scratching my head*
