    Gary picked us up from our home stay Misty Villa in Cingjing in late morning and drove us to Kending, stopping by Sun Moon Lake and Che Cheng train station along the way for nice photo taking. He also recommended us to the very famous and tasty tea leaves eggs and told us the story behind it. He sent us to Kending night market thereafter, and waited for us to shop for 1 hour plus before sending us back to hotel. It was way past the 9 hours agreed when we booked his service, at no additional charges! He is very friendly and knowledgeable, with a good command of English, he shared many interesting facts with us!
