|Shop houses in Jiufen (Kabacchi)|
You’re packing your luggage for a jolly good time in Taiwan, then you blink your eyes and you realise you’re back home. Bummer. Time is never on our side, especially when we’re having fun. We share your pain. Skip the night markets, hipster cafes and Taipei 101, those are for travellers who have too much time on their watch. Get dirty with your hands and sip tea like a true Taiwanese because this is how you pass time Taiwan — by living like a a local.
|Ongoing baking lesson|
If you’re lazy — like us — and don’t mind paying, you can get comfy and enjoy a cup of tea with the cafe’s specialty dessert, Tieguanyin Strawberry Honey Toast, while you watch your friends do the hard work.
|Roasting sweet potatos|
Give pottery a shot over at The Shu’s Pottery. If you’re not embarrassed by the end-product, you can bring it home and show off the new skill you’ve acquired! You can also get to see perfectly preserved pottery and familiarise yourself on the history of pottery in Taiwan at the same time. When you’re done crafting your very first pottery, grab a bite at their cafe just next door.
