Touching down in Taipei, the first episode follows Will on his adventures while based in Taipei. Food is the primary mission on Day 1 as he eats through popular restaurants and a hyper local night market that should not be missed. There was also the hike up to Xiangshan which had glorious views but led to some serious immobilizing leg cramps (HOW EMBARASSING!!!). The second day featured a day trip with MyTaiwanTour to the famous Jiufen as the inspiration for Miyazaki’s “Spirited Away” and Pingxi where sky lantern dreams are made of before finishing the day at the hyper touristy Shilin Night Market.
