Favorite Experiences in Taiwan

Wednesday, January 8, 2020

A couple of months ago my friends and I went on a short trip to Taiwan. The five days we spent there were not nearly enough to enjoy all the sights and experiences the country has to offer, yet we truly enjoyed our brief vacation. The highlight of the trip was spending time with each other and celebrating three decades of friendship. But aside from that, here are my favorite experiences in Taiwan:

Shopping at Ximending, Taipei
We spent many hours shopping and just walking around Ximending.

Eating stinky tofu at Raohe Market
Stinky tofu smells rotten and tastes really nasty.

Hiking the Elephant Mountain (Xiangshan) Trail
Hiking to the top of Elephant Mountain offers the best views of Taipei's skyline.

Watching huge waves sweep across the pebbled shores of Qixingtan Beach in Hualien
Qixingtan Beach is truly stunning but swimming is not allowed because of strong currents.

Hiking the Swallow Grotto (Yanzikou) Trail in Taroko National Park
Yanzikou Trail is amazing but I'd like to go back to Taiwan to hike the other trails at Taroko Gorge.
