Taiwan Guide

For it’s size, Taiwan has surprising influence on the world, though it seems to slip under the mainstream radar. But that’s not surprising, given that it sits in the crux of big shadows left by East Asian neighbors. Taiwan is a country of nuanced complexity in every sense. From politics to culture even to language, Taiwan has a surprisingly dynamic history that is reflected in modern society. For travelers, that means a world to discover in the compact island. This Taiwan guide is a work in progress, with the goal of having it grow to be more and more comprehensive over time. So peruse, explore, and let me know what you think!

Taiwan is a cultural amalgam that is as much a product of history and geography as it is of social development. Often overlooked (literally) because of its small size, Taiwan is like a compact package of some of the best Asia has to offer. Perhaps the most influential ambassadors for Taiwanese culture is its food. Din Tai Fung and bubble tea diplomacy, if you will. That in itself is pretty telling of the essence of Taiwan. All you need to understand is that it’s a foodie culture is the purest form. Everything else is built around that.>>>
