Discover More about Taiwan at Taiwan Excellence Day!

It’s no secret that Taiwan is one of my favorite countries to travel to.
The photo above, taken in Taichung, can show you how much I enjoyed my stay there. 🙂 Aside from being visa-free, everything is easily accessible and
commodities are very affordable. I love shopping there, as well as going
on food trips at the night markets because the quality is great without
breaking the bank.
