Shrimp Fishing in Taipei
Seafood is always an interesting option for dining, and Taiwan has no shortage there. Why not brave the rough seas and go shrimping with us at one of our shrimping events in Taipei? Okay, so maybe it’s not an ocean, but more like a pool, inside a building, with an adjoining restaurant.
For those who haven’t been shrimping in Taiwan before, it’s a great time. You go to this large building with enormous pools inside. The pools are filled with murky water and shrimp. You are then handed a fishing rod and pole and sit down by the water’s edge for a couple hours and try to catch the shrimp. Whatever you catch, you then barbarically rip off their claws, skewer them, and grill them on a nearby barbeque. Thus you catch your dinner!
Our shrimping events last about two hours with teachers hailing from all over the island. The cost is generally around NT$500 for one rod. Most teachers choose to share a rod for two hours, but you can pay full price for a full two hours of shrimping if you’re so inclined.
RTT always organizes a shrimping contest as well. We ask each teacher to chip in NT$100. The rules were simple: Whoever catches the most shrimp in two hours takes home the pot.
Dinner and drinks followed the contest and a great time was had by all. We hope to see you at our next Shrimping Contest and maybe you will take home the top prize then!
Neihu Trail Hike
Fresh air, stunning views and as always dazzling company!
Come and enjoy a relatively relaxed walk in nature and admire the city-scape views. We walk from Tianmu to Neihu through a trail with temples and monuments along the way. The end of the trail takes us into Neihu where we can grab some food before we hop on MRT and head for home.
Wear sensible footwear for walking, comfortable clothes, and bring a rain jacket just in case! Be sure to have enough water and a snack!
LOCATION: We have pub parties at various locations in Taiwan and in South Korea.
PROMOTION: Our staff will do their best to organize a selection of cheap drinks and food to choose from. Come and relax after a week of work, socialize among friends and indulge at one of our pub events. We promise you’ll have a blast.
