Why Taiwan?

Most people love to travel to south of Asia and korea, Japan and China. People never learn about the small island, Taiwan. Although, Taiwan is small actually is big inside. There are few reasons you should travel to Taiwan. See the list below:

1.People are friendly and helpful in Taiwan.

That is true. When I was younger, teacher taught us how we need to help people from all over the world. If we don’t understand the language the person speak, you can still bring the person to local tourist service centre to get someone to help.

2.Night markets Snacks are amazing

One of amazing experiences you should have is that try as much as night market snacks as you can. Why? because they are very delicious. I will make another blog to talk about Taiwan’s night market food.

By the way, Taiwan’s night markets usually start from 5PM until 2Am, so if you go there early you would not be able to get what you want.

3.Transportation is convenient.

In local transportation, there is Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) in Taipei and Kaohsiung. (MRT is kind of Subway system in Toronto). There are also plane, buses, trains and High Speed Rail to city to cities, so it’s really convenient to travel in Taiwan.

4.Climbing up

Yes, if you love to climb in mountains, there is another reason why you should visit Taiwan. There are many mountains in Taiwan such as Xueshan, Nanhu Mountain, Yushan…etc. When you climb one of those mountains, you can get a lot of rewards from nature. For example, fresh air you would never get from the cities or an amazing view from the waterfall that cuts through the lush.

5.Relaxing on beaches or lake

Oh YEA, There are BEACHES in Taiwan. One of the most famous is in Kenting white sand beach where is in the Southern of Taiwan. Another place I want to talk about is Sun Moon Lake, where is in my hometown, Nantou. Sun Moon Lake, One of the most popular spots for relaxing .It’s known as a beautifully romantic spot, so many couples go there to take wedding photos or honeymoon.

 

6.Provide free wifi in subway

There is one thing better than Toronto is that we can use wifi while we are taking subway. Even though you are in underground, you can still talk on the phone or using WIFI. NO PROBLEM AT ALL.

Taiwan, is a really special country to visit. It’s small, but we have it all. Taiwan is not only modest island but is a perfect place for a new visitor like you.
