Leofoo Village Theme Park, which is located at Guansi Tsinchu (新竹关西). According to its website, we can take MRT to JingAn station (景安站) and from there, take E-Go bus directly to the theme park.
Before I proceed to talk about Leofoo theme park, let me digress a bit. Do you know that if you are travelling to Taiwan as a free and easy traveler, you can actually collect some freebies from Taiwan Visitor Association? All you need to produce is one night of confirmed accommodation in Taiwan and your individual air ticket. The freebies vary from month to month. Last month I understand it is a multi USB cable. For us, we were given four EasyCard stored value Taiwan MRT cards (优游卡). There is value in the card, which I think is about TWD50 per card. Other than the cards, there were also many discount vouchers and information about Taiwan. Below is where you collect the freebies in its Singapore office.

Ok now back to my post. After we arrived at JingAn station, we turned left from the exit and saw a long queue for the E-Go bus. A man then approached us as well as a few others in the queue asking if we wanted to take his private van to the theme park. He explained nicely to us saying that if we continue to wait for the bus, it'll probably be an hour before we can even board the bus. Looking at the long queue and one bus that had just departed, I think he's not exaggerating. His charges are slightly more than the bus fares but I think it's reasonable. He charged TWD200 per person and after negotiation he agreed to TWD700 for my whole family. That's about SGD30 for a 45mins ride.
We strongly believe we had made a right choice because we overtook the bus that left the station before us. And here we were, Leofoo Village Theme Park. We quickly went to the ticket counter to purchase the entrance tickets at a discounted rate as we had discount vouchers at part of the freebies collected from Taiwan Visitor Association in Singapore.
We spent about slightly more than an hour in this area. By the time, the sky started to turned dark.
We quickly took some photos here before going back to Arabian Kingdom for the Flying Carpet ride. Yes again......and I think we took it for 4-5 times continuously because there was no queue.
