5 things to do in Taichung

Posted by on Apr 10, 2013 in Featured, Tips & Advice, Travel

Taiwan is a beautiful place; however, as a person who has lived 2 and a half years of my life in Taichung, the middle of Taiwan, I feel that I need to give tips and ideas to those who would like to visit this dear island and this great city. So, in this I’ll be detailing things to do and places to go. This article will be more suited to those who are planning to stay in Taiwan for quite a while and whether you’ll be working or purely studying then this article will, hopefully, be suitable for your needs. As I’ve lived here for quite a long time, I’ve come to know Taichung quite well and when I compare it my home city in London, the first thing I compare is price. Taichung is by far cheaper and...

Trip to Kaohsiung (高雄)

Posted by on Jan 30, 2013 in Featured, Travel

I recently went to this place called Gaoxiong (Pinyin) or Kaohsiung (TW Pinyin; 高雄) and it is the first time I’ve been there since I’ve been in Taiwan. Usually, foreigners will travel around and go places; however, little old me has just primarily stayed in Taichung.  I’m boring I guess. Although if cash weren’t a concern I’d be going anywhere and everywhere, so I need to be a little fiscally conservative if I want to survive. I went with a group of friends and with my sister, and we met up with my friend’s relatives who took us around Kaohsiung on a sort of tour guide of the nice places in and out of the city. One of those places we went to was a place called Cháishān (柴山), a mountain in Kaohsiung that has a monkey reserve sitting on it! Below...

My trip to South Korea

Posted by on Oct 5, 2012 in Featured, Life, Travel

I just came back from Incheon International Airport, or South Korea just a couple hours ago. (It takes around 2.5 hours from Korea to Taiwan) I only stayed for 6 days, and those 6 days have been the best time of my life. I haven’t had the most exciting life in the world, so this trip may appear as trivial to others. However for me, meeting my girlfriend after having no access to her physical presence for over 9 months really made this trip special. I could have stayed with her indoors and it would have been special, I didn’t even need to go to special areas or places to enjoy myself, just having her presence was enough to make this special. Having said that, I went to many places with her and had a blast of a time. We went to the DMZ,...

Feng-Chia Night Market

Posted by on Jan 26, 2012 in Featured, Travel

Yesterday, I turned up to Feng-Chia for the first time 4 days and all I could see was a sea of people. Previous to the four days, everything was calm and relaxed and there was hardly anyone on the streets or around the night market. It was as if things had ‘died down’ a bit. I guess  it is the Chinese New Year/Lunar New Year holiday which has caused this vast increase, in the amount of people swarming the night market of Feng-Chia. Here are some pics: (They aren’t good pics as there were too many people and I couldn’t really just stop without blocking anyone behind...
