As a traveler, I am constantly looking through resources and websites to find out about the next hot destination. Southeast Asia has been the region to beat these last couple of years. However, I often find it discouraging that many travel guides have little to say in terms of Taiwan. Even publications and sites such as Condé Nast Traveler, TripAdvisor, and Lonely Planet only feature some of the “major” sights, leaving off a large variety of Taiwan’s offerings.
This lack of discussion has me concerned. How can Southeast Asia be so influential at the moment and yet many travelers are completely overlooking one of the top developed areas in Asia? In fact the majority of the time when I connect with people back home, they forgetfully ask how I am doing in Thailand or China. While Taiwan is a small island, it has many international advantages that I wished others would write about.
In an attempt to draw more interest within the international community towards Taiwan, I will be hosting a mini-series entitled “Here Today, Taiwan Tomorrow” to highlight some of the wonderful things about Taiwan. I hope that through this series, more travelers will considering adding a trip to Taiwan to their journeys.
If you have been to Taiwan, I’d love to hear your feedback and experiences throughout this series! If you’d like to possibly contribute something about Taiwan as a guest post, please see this post about contributing!
As always, if you have questions do not hesitate to contact me and I will try to help you as best as I can.
