KAOHSIUNG & TAINAN: A Cultural Journey to Southern Taiwan ?? (2017)

thumb1

‘Ilha Formosa’ or Spanish for beautiful Island, were the first few words that described Taiwan when the first Portuguese ship passed by the island in the 1500s. Interestingly enough Formosa became its name for the next four centuries until the Dutch established a fortress in a province called Taoyuan, which later evolved into Taiwan.

Today, a lot of things have changed, and Taiwan is now an official part of the Republic of China, but what didn’t change is Taiwan’s rich and beautiful culture.

Join me as we discover the best cultural things to do and experience in Southern Taiwan.

TAIWAN GUIDE: 10 Authentic Things to Do for First-Time Visitors in Taipei ?

Taiwan4

Taiwan has always had a special place in my heart. I remember visiting Taipei 10 years ago, back when Taiwan was still under everyone’s radar and Taipei 101 was still the tallest building in the world.

I remember traveling around this tiny island nation that has a little bit of everything, from mountainous landscapes and beautiful beaches to a sprawling nightlife in the metropolis. Not to mention the country has four seasons, meaning it gets hot during summer and it can snow on some parts during winter.

WATCH: All this combined makes Taiwan the perfect travel destination for Filipinos.
