After a really cold night at Miaoli minsu, we woke up to sunshine which was really welcoming.
We didn’t go with our driver today as we intend to spend the whole day at Flying Cow Ranch. Instead we paid a transport fee to our minsu owners to ferry us to and fro and thereafter to a fruit picking farm as well.
Flying Cow Ranch (飛牛牧場)
This is one of the most visited place in Miaoli area. It is designed for tourists.
You can choose to stay at the premise or do a day trip which is what we did.
We didn’t managed to take part in the D.I.Y classes because we didn’t plan properly and missed the timings. If you are staying there, chances are you can have more time to explore the farm and register in the D.I.Y classes at a more timely fashion. And if the kids are tired, there is the option to head back to the accommodation for a breather before continuing with the activities.
But of course, we tried to save money by staying at a minsu nearby.
Eizac was really tired by mid day and the 2 grandmothers took turn to watch him nap while the rest of us walked the farm. Thank God for grandmothers.
Still, it was a fun day (for some of us) out at the farm; slipping F.O.C fresh milk (it’s really good!), eating take-outs, feeding sheep, taking the train, playing at the playground, chasing butterflies and many more.
If we do head back here, I am likely to choose a night of accommodation in-house so we have more time and a resting place in between.
