Taiwan Tourist Traps

  • Sun Moon Lake

    Perhaps the most famous of Taiwan's big three natural attractions, Sun Moon Lake is not as overrated as Alishan, but is nonetheless far less worthwhile than Taroko Gorge. The lake is certainly pretty when viewed from Shuishe, especially in the morning, but it hardly justifies a place on a visitor's itinerary. Furthermore views of the lake are...

  • Alishan Forest Recreation Area

    This is one of Taiwan's three famous natural attractions, the other two being Sun Moon Lake and Taroko Gorge. It is also Taiwan's most famous tourist trap. The attractions here (a coniferous forest and the sunrise) are decent enough but hardly worth the effort of coming here. It is scarred by overdevelopment and yet lacks any decent eating options....

  • Taipei

    If you come to Taiwan, don't focus your stay in any city. Many people come to Taiwan and sty in Taipei. There is more to Taiwan than the Taipei 101!!!!Also the most expensive place in taiwan. if you like high end luxuries and spending cash while staying at 6 star hotels, maybe its good to stay here....if thats not you, go for the bus/train...

  • Rafting on Hsukuluan River

    It was a few days after typhoon Kaemi ŠM•Ä, there are two families of four plus myself on the raft. There are five rafts and looked aftered by 2 guides each on a fast motor boat. It was a clear sunny day. The scenery was nice but the rafting was very boring if you have rafted in New Zealand or Australia before. I think this Hsukuluan River is not...

  • Wufenpu - wholesale mkt NOT for kids...

    Personally I did not quite like Wufenpu. The streets are narrow, without cover most of the time. What I mean is, if it is raining, I strongly advise you not to go. It is very difficult to juggle a dripping umbrella, and look at / try on clothes. Besides, most of the shops don't have a fitting room. For kids clothes, you should go to Taipei Main...

  • Don't take local tours that squeeze in...

    Try not to take local tours, esp those that squeeze in too much activities / sites into one day. It's better to take your own time, and explore, smell the roses a little! *smile*I have come across several full-day tours and these typically cost around NTD1200. One such example brings you to Jiufen (North East coast), then to Beitou, then to Yang...

    Taxi:I know , I know . If you ever been to Taiwan , you'd think , how could the taxi fare be so cheap here in Taiwan . But do be careful of some of them , there are some unconscionable taxi drivers will try to rip you off , if they know you are a tourist here .

  • YangMing Shan & Taiwan's Greatest...

    The Taiwanese have a saying: "?ãŽÔ?‡æS‰ºŽÔ”A”A" (Shang che shuizhao xia che niao niao). The sentence refers to the long-standing Taiwanese tradition of getting a group of 30, 40, or 50 of your closest neighbors and friends together on a tour bus and going to some tourist spot, ususally for a couple hours (at most), and then getting on the bus and...

    Ak sa nahodou rozhodnete zapochodovat si vo volnej prirode, tak mate smolu, lebo vsade na vas cakaju vymurovane chodnicky a schody az do neba. Tato cinska ruza kvitne nedaleko Tse pagody, ktora bola postavena na pamiatku matky Chiang Kai-Sheka vyznamnej to osobnosti taiwanskych dejin minuleho storocia.

  • This massive memorial was...

    This massive memorial was built by his son to honor his father. Tacky indeed. The land was originally reserved for the trade exhibition center but then Chiang Kai Shek died. The Taiwanese don't view as highly of this political figure as its memorial might suggest. Architecturally it takes the form of a temple and gigantic in size, which lacks...

    Snake Alley in Taipei. It's fun anyway and you can try cobra meat and look at pickled snakes (just see photo).
