The ‘Heart of Asia’ was my last stop before headin’ home. It’s a surprisingly beautiful country, and without much surprise it was infinitely better than mainland China. Highlights from the video include: a Taipei street party, betel nut girls, Taipei night markets, eating turtle and drinking snake blood, a Filipino disco, Taroko Gorge, local hot springs and volcanic mud baths.
Taiwan has all the comforts of the first world, and a lot of the charm in the people of a third world nation. Absolutely a recommended stop!
Follow the lessons-learned and stories-told in photos and videos from a really slow trip around the world.
