Taiwan is worth a trip just for the food alone – ubiquitous, affordable and mouthwatering.
Taiwanese people love their food: a mixture of Chinese, Taiwanese aboriginal, Japanese and Western influence. A lot of food is consumed on the go, be it breakfast or snacks – the snacks are the best!
Kaohsiung has some really awesome street and urban art to offer. The Hamasen Railway Cultural Park and Pier-2 Art Center are old industrial areas being transformed into new cultural spaces. Street artists created the largest mural village in Taiwan in Lingya District near Weiwuying, breathing new life into the blocks of houses – now bursting with color!
