Amazing scenic views. Cheap eats. Robot cafes?!?! What's not to love? Taiwan's got it all!
One of the most memorable experience I had while traveling in Taiwan are the people and the communities. Despite the level of English proficiency in Taiwan, the people there are super nice, willing to try talking to you regardless. One day I hopped on a bus to meet a friend at a museum in Taichung and I believe I was lost. I tried asking the bus driver if the bus line would reach the museum, while the driver scratches his head not knowing how to respond. He does realize I am lost and know where I'm pointing to. He IMMEDIATELY grabs the communicator and ask EVERYONE on the bus whether they know if his bus line went to the museum (or at least I think that's what he said). I turned my head back, people started looking at me, then dozens of riders told me to wait a minute and they all started to check their phones and looking up the info for me. I felt amazed at how nice and generous a lot of these people even though they know I am a tourist who do not speak mandarin they tried their best to direct me in Mandarin hoping that I would understand. Believe me, if you're on a Muni in San Francisco, you're just gonna get the snake-eye batsh*t crazy looks from riders and simply be ignored (for the most part). That's why I love Taiwan, the food, the people, the community, it's quite an adventure. I will return very soon Taiwan and hopefully by then I can grab a drink with their first Madam President! Cheers!
What is it like to see a plane land less than a mile away from where we stood?
Check out our recent collaboration with Air China & teaming up with Bay Tiger Video Productions, we got the opportunity to get in on some plane landing action and the water cannon inaugural ceremony for their San Jose to Shanghai airline launch.
Hong Kong is indeed a city to visit once in a lifetime. The vibe in Hong Kong are a mix of traditional and new cultures. You have the awesome eateries in Mong Kok (get the roast duck and pineapple bun), great shopping deals in Shum Shui Po, bars and nightlife in Hong Kong Island. This city has it all! I hope to return to Hong Kong someday.
