As a moderately easy adventure we decided to send them to the nearby town of Yingge - a mecca for ceramists and all things pottery. From Taipei City, it is easy to take the blue MRT line to the last station (West) Yongning. From there you can take a taxi ride to Yingge Old Ceramics Street, and it's only about 15 minutes drive if I remember correctly. The night before their mini-trip I made sure to write down the names of Yingge and the MRT station in Chinese for the girls so that there would be no confusion.
AND, luckily it seems that they really enjoyed their day in Yingge!
|And they're off! Down the escalator into the MRT station!|
[The Taipei blue MRT line runs almost entirely underground]
|Ah! They made it to Yingge Old Ceramics Street. Love the cobblestones.|
|Some pottery on display.|
|Art and ceramics are everywhere there! It's a fun place to visit :)|
|And the ladies even enjoyed a nice afternoon tea.|
