  • This time because of the son's "love", thus creating this street "traveler" city! 2019/06/25 Set foot in this city, I was the first time that i came to "The Second Time" to Ps落️; The world check the house station"! After adjusting for my check-in, I was tired, so I took a slow walk in the direction of the "Dao Yu". Walking to the "heart" is already "more than 7 pm", is really the people of the pit valley, the shop, and there are those travelers must take pictures of the "runner kanban" - the crowd, see the shops, the road push must eat food. Can only use "eye-watering" to describe this city fried, boiled, roasted, there is something, only afraid of your one "belly" is not !!! It doesn't mean to make sure you need to build it again next time.
