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.
