  • Taiwan has been on my travel list for a very

  • long time now.

  • Before I had even stepped foot into this country,

  • Taiwan always had a special place in my heart.

  • It all started over 10 years ago

  • When a friend introduced me to Taiwanese dramas.

  • Those dramas opened a new world for me.

  • I learnt more about the culture

  • And I unknowingly learnt a new language.

  • Since then I have always planned to visit Taiwan one day.

  • And after many years, I was finally able to visit this little gem

  • of an island.

  • My friends tagged along

  • And together we travelled round the island

  • in 18 days.

  • Our journey started in

  • Taipei

  • To Taichung

  • To Nantou

  • To Tainan

  • To Taitung

  • To Hualien

  • And back to Taipei again.

  • During those 18 days,

  • We ate a lot of food,

  • Drank a lot of bubble tea

  • And met countless of kind people

  • Who made our stay even more memorable.

  • The warmth and friendliness from the locals

  • Made us feel like we had stayed in Taiwan forever

  • Yet we also felt that time had gone by so quickly.

  • Our most memorable experiences was when

  • We danced in the sunset at Gaomei Wetlands

  • Spent the evening at the local police station

  • Rode an electric bike alongside the paddy fields

  • And spent the day like a local Taiwanese person

  • Many people are unfamiliar with Taiwan

  • But this island is Asia's best kept secret

  • Eighteen days was not enough to do everything I wanted

  • But it was enough to convince me I want to come back.

  • Until that day comes, I will miss:

  • The sound of the musical bin lorry

  • The sound of several languages on the train

  • KFC's Portuguese egg tarts

  • The food

  • The fooooood

  • And most importantly

  • I will miss the generosity and the hospitality

  • of the Taiwanese people

  • Taiwan has beautiful scenery

  • And amazing food

  • But it's the people here that make this

  • place so beautifully special.

  • Thank you for having me, Taiwan.

  • Until we meet again next time.
