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: Awesome Guide to the Heart of Asia! 🇹🇼 (2017)

By Juanico Fernandez

Taiwan for me is easily one of my favorite destinations in Asia. It has that distinct look and feels to it that reminds me of Hong Kong and Japan combined, yet it still manages to stand out among its Asian neighbors.

I remember visiting 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 incredible people you’ll meet along the way that makes Taiwan the perfect travel destination for Filipinos.

If you plan on visiting Taiwan but isn’t sure where to start or where to go, don’t worry–I’ve created a guide that will take you on a journey from capital city Taipei in the north all the way down to Kaohsiung City in the south.
