An endearingly little country, Taiwan is considered one of the most welcoming on their side of the earth. In comparison to China and most of South-East Asia, Taiwan is a prosperous country with a relatively low cost of living. With a unique culture in its own and beautiful parks, it is a magical place to visit, especially for the frequent travelers who feel as though they have seen it all!
You might be familiar with Confucius, an abstract Chinese philosopher who existed in 500 BC. If you want to learn more about the man behind the mystery, Taiwan is home to The Taipei Confucius Temple. It is a gorgeous temple suited for all ages, adults and children alike.
As Taiwanese are known for their obsession with Hello Kitty, it is a space where adults are free to enjoy kid-like things, like animation and frilly clothes. Even if you only partake of their ‘cuteness culture’ while buying a souvenir for your niece, visiting such a nation brings back a sense of wonderment and imagination that we felt so viscerally when we were children. It might feel like stepping into another world, but isn’t that what traveling is all about?!
