Taiwan has been enjoying the surge of tourists these past few years. Popular places to visit are Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, Taipei 101, the old townships of Shifen and Jiufen, and of course, the night markets — they are in abundance in the country. People has this impression that there’s nothing much to do or visit in Taiwan. It is often compared to Japan or Hong Kong, but the boring version of these countries. But then, if you come to think about it, nothing much can be done in these places; they are typical tourist spots and attractions.
But with a bit of research, you can find unusual places to visit, and activities to do in Taiwan. Taiwan has surprised me so much, and it is one of the best trips that I had, so far, in my short travelling life. The country has a lot of hidden gems, and endless activities to do. I experienced a lot of “first times” through this trip, and I have enjoyed a lot.
With this post, I shall share the unusual activities and places that I did and visited in Taiwan.
