Kaohsiung Kids Friendly Itinerary Day 8: Fun Bus > Taroko Mall > Kaohsiung Airport > Changi Airport

Day 8: Fun Bus > Taroko Mall > Kaohsiung Airport > Changi Airport
It's time to bid Kaohsiung farewell. As our flight is in the late evening, we have plenty of time to spare today. Taroko Mall is a great place to go to, it's a mere 5 minutes drive from the airport and 2 train stops away. There are ample lockers for you to store your luggage at very reasonable prices too.
Plenty of kids friendly activities as well.

We left FunBus at check out time which is 11 am. We've also prearranged with the very nice driver to pick us up at 11 am to Taroko Mall.
We've half a day to spend here before heading to the airport at before 5:00pm.

Would highly recommend anyone with kids to pop by Taroko Mall, there are a few outlet stores here and plenty of entertainment for kids.
They even have an outdoor theme park which we didn't go. Too much theme park from the day before.

An impressive LEGO structure outside LEGO shop

 This is the outdoor theme park where there are go-karts as well.

 This is the outdoor driving circuit for kids

 We went for the indoor one instead and Sticky Bean had an equal amount of fun.

 We paid a flat amount for 2 hours and she gets to play at this indoor playground which includes the motor ride she had above.

Right next to this indoor playground is an indoor golf putty course

 Sticky Bean just has to give it a go. Prices are pretty reasonable.

There're just so many activities to keep your kids entertained at Taroko Gorge. We went for coffee and took a taxi to the airport which is just a 5 minutes ride away.

Quick Review Kaohsiung Child-Friendly Itinerary Day 8: This marks the end of our Kaohsiung Child-Friendly Trip. Love that our flight is in the late evening hence we get to enjoy one full day at Taroko Mall. We also ensure that Sticky Bean has ample time playing in the Castle themed room at Fun Bus and check out of the room only at the designated time 12 noon.

Taiwan Kids friendly Accommodation with slides - not your usual list!

And so from a mere idea of bringing Sticky Bean with us to Taiwan, this idea was put into action with Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promotion where you get to pay only $70 for a child's ticket! Though it's not exactly the cheapest option for flying to Taiwan, we thought to pay a little more for better service and not to mention safety since it will be Sticky Bean's first time traveling on a relatively longer flight. Her first plane ride was a really short one to KL, a mere 1 hour away. If she's manageable on the flight, we can then consider budget airlines such as Scoot or even Jetstar for our subsequent travels. So why Taiwan? There are plenty of reasons for our choice other than both Mr. Keir and myself love Taiwan for the food and hospitality. I'm sure you may have come across Awesome kids friendly accommodation with slides and other themed rooms in Taiwan that are trending in facebook. That was one of the many reasons why we want to go Taiwan too!

BTO Keys Collection and BTO Door Opening Ceremony

And so after a long 4 years wait, our BTO is finally ready for keys collection. To be honest we totally forgot about out BTO and was pleasantly surprised to receive an SMS from HDB to inform us of our BTO keys collection date. That was when we frantically tried to hunt for an ID. Ok to cut the story short, here's what happened on the BTO keys collection day as well as what we did for our "BTO Door Opening Ceremony". There really wasn't an official BTO door opening ritual or ceremony in fengshui. I guess this is just a Singapore custom. Though we do not have a religion, in particular, we just did it for an ease of mind. Love the  living room view from our 30th storey BTO view from our Service Yard BTO Key Collection Process at HDB Time took: less than an hour It was a very straightforward and easy process. Here's what you need to prepare, assuming that you are taking the loan from HDB. Identity cards Marriage certificate if you are buying

Our 7 Day 6 Nights Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary Preview

Here's a preview of our Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary for our trip to Taiwan earlier this month in May 2017. You can click on the respective days for a detailed post. And so we finally embarked on our journey to Taiwan onboard Singapore Airlines! Thanks to Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promo, we decided to splurge a little on the air tickets. The air tickets cost about $1,440 for 2 adults and 1 3.5 yr old. We spent a total of 7 days 6 nights in Taiwan altogether. But in order to make our Taiwan trip more child-friendly, relaxing,  and to cut down on travelling time, we merely visited the North part of Taiwan primarily - Hsinchu, Yilan and Taipei. It's never easy travelling with a young one, hence we should not be too ambitious when it comes to planning your Taiwan Child Friendly itinerary. Good thing is,  Mr  Keir and I have always preferred a chillax itinerary. We're not the type of tourist who loves to jam pack the full day and visit 101 attracti
