My Taiwan Highlights
Here’s where I got to in Taiwan. Click the destination name for related blog posts.
Sat on Taiwan’s east coast, this small city is the perfect gateway to one of Taiwan’s greatest national parks – Taroko Gorge. Spend at least an entire day exploring its amazing landscapes.
Taiwan’s capital is dynamic and exciting. A special shout-out has to go to the incredible food, the best of which can be found at one of the city’s sensational street food markets. Scattered around the city are a wealth of historical and cultural treasures, as well as amazing hikes and day trips a short hop away.
