Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa

We spent a three day two night staycation in Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa to commemorate an important day. Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa has many types of rooms and suites. After we checked in and were brought to the our suite at the Larkhill Terrace Suites.

Larkhill Terrace Suite has 18 suites on each floor. Ours is on the first level. I was very amazed by the suite. It's not the big kind of suite, with many rooms and such, but when you reach the door step, there are two armchairs on either side of the door. Opening the door, you are greeted with a bed room with a King sized bed. There is a TV, a minibar with 2 cans of Pepsi, 2 cans of Tiger beer and 2 bottles of Orange Juice (Complimentary), a coffee/tea area with Twinings tea bags, Nescafe coffee packs and 8 Nespresso and its maker (Complimentary). Amazed that they are all complimentary.

Going straight on, through a wooden door, everything is in white. There's a shower room on the left and a toilet on the right. And continuing on, through a white siding glass panel door, is the outdoor area, but still a private space. There's a sink counter on either side of the wall, and there's a bathtub in between. Going past the bathtub, there's a large daybed, with shades that can be drawn in, for suntanning privately indoors.

And the final last door, sliding the wooden white doors open, you will see the private pool exclusively for the guests of these 36 Larkhill Terrace Suites. The place is amazing!

Our stay includes breakfast at their buffet restaurant, located near the Front Lobby at the Sanctuary Block. There's quite alot to choose from to make our breakfast and very filling one.

The staff there were terrific too. They were very friendly and all smiles. From check-in, to butler, to the one cleaning our room, to the waiters in the restaurant.

I had a great and enjoyable staycation.

Kaohsiung : Fo Guang Shan 佛光山

PS: This will be a long post with many photos.

After a much complicated directions online on how to get to the Fo Guang Shan 佛光山, we decided to take the KRT to Zuoying Station and then take the bus, 哈佛快線. Exit the Zuoying KRT Station and wait at Bus Platform 2 for the 哈佛快線 to come. There is a time schedule for the bus to arrive. Each bus trip cost NTD70 per person. You can use the iPass to tap in and out for the journey.

Alternatively, based on online reviews, you can take bus 8010/8011 at 高雄客运. It is just opposite our hotel and behind 国光客运. However, it is not recommended by the staff there as it is a much longer time and distance, that's why she recommended us to take the 哈佛快線 at Zuoying.

Here's the bus. We waited quite some time as we were early.

Here's the bus schedule.

We have reached Fo Guang Shan 佛光山. A little overwhelmed by the map. It's a huge place. And since it's on a hill, there are alot of slopes and stairs. Just thinking about it make my knees go weak.…

Kaohsiung : Food and more food

Besides eating at Night Markets, we also went to some recommended places online and on TV. These places are not that near from the KRT and need some working out on feet.

BO 雪球餅乾咖啡館 BO Schneebälle Cafe 新光三越高雄左營店3F | Shin Kong Mitsukoshi (Zuoying) level 3

We had accidentally went past this cafe in Zuoying Shin Kong Mitsukoshi 星光三越. The hubby saw a TV show recommending this special biscuit ball where you need to hammer it to eat in smaller pieces. We tried it as it was quite fun. We had the chocolate flavoured one.

The huge wooden hammer in shop to break the biscuit ball into pieces.

I think we hammered too much... Haha the ball became overly small pieces. It's delicious.

You can buy as gifts. If I remember correctly, three balls into one container.

I am pretty regretful that I did not buy more to bring home. I like the taste of it a lot. And I am missing it so much. Ahh.. Delicious.

Kaohsiung : Cijin Island 旗津島

PS: This will be a long post with many photos.

After visiting The Pier-2 Art Center 駁二藝術特區 and the Takao Railway Museum 打狗鐵道故事館 in the morning, our following itinerary was to head to the Cijin Island 旗津島. By the way, if we were able to travel around on bicycles, it would be much easier. So, do rent a bicycle to travel around if you are able to cycle. Especially for The Pier-2 Art Center 駁二藝術特區 and on Cijin Island 旗津島.

About 10-15 minutes walk from the Orange line KRT station, Sizihwan Station 西子灣站 (O1), you will be able to reach the ferry terminal. Follow the signs (鼓山渡轮站) on the lamp posts to get to the ferry terminal.

 The ferry also ferries passengers travelling with bicycles and motorcycles. For us, without any cycles, it costs NTD15 per person per trip. You can pay in cash or iPass.

The ferry ride is only about 5 to 10 minutes. Cijin Island 旗津島 is just opposite, separated by the waters. The ferry terminal looks nicer on the island.

There's a temple on the island. Cihhou Godde…
