After a couple of nights in Hualien we hopped a train back to Taipei. Incidentally, the reason we'd gone to Hualien first was because over the New Year period the cheapest Taipei hotel we could find was $150 USD. No thanks. After the holidays we managed to track down a place for about $50/night and headed back to the capital to stay there. You know how I talked about trains being standing room only in my first Taiwan post? The train back from Hualien was worse than the one there. It was like this for the entire three-hour journey:
Can you see an appropriately sad-looking Tom?
Although we'd planned on arriving in the city and storming it, we ended up in our hotel room sitting on our butts and napping. Our hotel was pretty far from the city's nightlife but it was a 10 minute walk to Raohe Night Market, so after sufficient recovery time we went and picked up some snacks for dinner, something we'd end up doing almost every night. I don't seem to have any pictures of the market or the food we ate there, except for this one:

Deep fried Oreo. OMG.
