Best Things to do in Taipei – Overnight City Guide

I have always loved travelling.

I was lucky enough that from a young age, my parents took us all over the place, instilling in us a sense of larger spaces and broadened horizons. As I grew up, I became more independent in my travels and tried to figure out ways to do it more. From learning Spanish in Salamanca to purposefully getting 6 month summer jobs in places I wanted to explore further.

I became accustomed to getting lost and just wondering the streets, figuring out where would be the next good meal or when I would stumble onto some secret only locals whispered about. Getting lost was second nature back then. The only resources we had were over-read guide books that by the time you reached their recommendations, the waiters would push their best sellers down your throats.

So we had to resort to friend recommendations, what blog resources were up on the internet, guide books, conversations with strangers and your hotel concierge. Nowadays in our hyper connected world, everyone is an expert and there are so many sites that claim that this restaurants, trumps this bar, which is passé and now is considered touristy by pretty much everyone. Honestly, for me, good is good, so that’s what I base myself on.

For every family or friend trip we would take, I became the defacto research guide. Skimming through websites in English and in the language of destination, guide books, personal blogs, Instagram hashtags, geotags and anything else social media would allow me to delve into. Finally, being able to create a snap shot of the city, its districts and where to eat, sleep, drink, party or learn about the culture.

This is what Overnight is about.

For all of the information of the video, a map of the city and our Overnight guide.

    I went to Taiwan in the summer and it was so much fun. The food was amazing, people were so friendly, the night markets were fun and don’t even get me started on the view

    Lmao the only good/fun shit to do here Is to eat and hike mountains XD

    Plus you guys really missed out on that railroad place with a lot of cats and the ghibli museum

    I will never understand why people travel to places like Taipei and then say things like "try to get away from the hustle and bustle of the deep and tall city". Thats exactly the reason to travel there

    I don’t know but I’m having a hard time now looking for travel vlogs that i like. This is because Erwann sets the bar so high when it comes to this. I love how Erwann takes us to places not just thru videos and amazing cinematography but also because of his brilliant narratives. So please, if you’ll read this, please do more of travel vlogs! Haha. I’ve been watching your travel escapades many times.

    Damn how is it sustainable to have food that cheap. 10 dollars for 16 buns. Here in toronto you would be lucky to get one bun for $10, maybe two if it's american dollars
