TRIP TO TAIWAN! 台湾 – JIUFEN & PINGXI SKY LANTERN 🏮 VLOG





Welcome to Taiwan! In this 24 hour layover trip, we travel into the mountainside to Jiufen where we try street food and visit Pingxi to make the magical sky lanterns.

We landed in Taiwan after taking the Eva Air Hello Kitty flight from LAX. We travel from Taipei to visit the northern coast starting at Jinguashi. We visit the Yin-Yang Sea and a copper/ gold mine dating back to the era of Japanese rule over the island.

Next, we travel a few minutes north into the mountains to visit Jiufen, the town that inspired the classic anime movie “Spirited Away” by Hayao Miyazaki, Japan’s equivalent to Walt Disney in film making. We wander the cobblestone streets and alleyways filled with food vendors and try the bubble tea and Taiwan’s traditional stinky tofu. We also eat at a dim sum restaurant which overlooks Jiufen.

Next, we head to Pingxi where we make sky lanterns and release them in Shifen Old Street to send our wishes to the heavens. Our lantern’s wish was “Peace Love and Taiwan!”

Here is the MyTaiwanTour that we took:

    Ugh, are you serious? I'm SUPER jealous right now. This was going to be my summer destination, but I didn't realize summer weather was so yucky and there is risk of typhoons. I might still go anyways in May. If it rains, it rains. And if I die in a typhoon, I die in a typhoon. That place looks AMAZING!
