My Summer Vacation

My Summer VacationThis summer vacation our family went back to Taiwan. On June 24th we left Shenzhen and flew from Hong Kong International Airport to Taiwan Taoyuan airport. When we arrived that day it was very late so my parents called a driver to take us to my grandparent’s house. As soon as we were in the house we went right to sleep. The next day we woke up really early and went to rent a car. We drove the car south to a place in Taiwan called Changhua. When we got there we had lunch in a saxophone museum. After lunch my dad took us to a couple of saxophone factories and museums.

After we finished going to the museums we went to a factory. There we saw lots of different kinds and also many different colors of saxophones. After visiting the few of the saxophone factories my dad decided to let me buy one of the saxophone. The next day we left Changhua and we went to Gaoxiong where we visited some of my mom’s relatives. My dad also met one of his old friends that he used to play with when he was young. My dad’s friend took us to a restaurant and we ate there. After my dad met his friend he went to return the car to the company that we rented from. We then took a taxi to the bus station. We bought our ticket and the bus drove us to Kenting.

Kenting is almost at Southern most point of Taiwan. Kenting is an awesome place to spend the summer vacation, because it has lots of beaches and swimming pools. The first night at Kenting we went out to the night market, and ate lots of delicious food. After the great feast we went back to the Howard hotel. When we woke up the next morning we went down to the lobby and rented three bikes. We rode the bikes further south and arrived at an old lighthouse. We spent about two hours there running on the grass field.

Then we left the lighthouse and rode about thirty minutes back to the hotel. When we arrived at the hotel we returned the bikes and had some rest. But I wasn’t tired so I just played my PSP while my parents were asleep. When they woke up it was about 7PM so we went to the night market and ate more good food. The next day my mom and dad took us to the water slides. And we spent almost the rest of our day there without eating lunch. When the last day came we went to the water slide again. A few hours later we went back to our room and packed all of our stuff, and left Kenting.

Although this is not the whole story of my summer vacation, it was the best part of my summer vacation.
