  I hardly ever say this to a hotel and I’m going to say it to Fushin Hotel in Taichung.  “I miss you!” In fact, I said that out loud just a few hours after checking out of the 4-star hotel. What made me fall in love with this supposedly old and dated hotel in Taichung, Taiwan? Well, plenty of good stuff and I can’t wait to share them with you. A spoiler here – Fushin …

Rent a Car in Taiwan: My Cheap & Fuss-free Taiwan Car Rental Experience

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my full disclosure.

  “Are you sure you want to rent a car through this website? Not many reviews yet, you know?” I’d asked my partner. I was referring to a Taiwan Car Rental listing on Klook.com. I’ve no qualms about being a guinea pig when it comes to testing hotels and Airbnbs. But testing a car is a serious matter. If a car breaks down in a foreign land, it is no small joke. There’s a lot of …

  Hi all, travelling to Taiwan soon and need WiFi connectivity? I’ve just returned from Taiwan and highly-recommend this Taiwan 4G WiFi (TW Airport Pick Up).

I’ve also tested this at the summit of Hehuanshan East Peak and there wasn’t a lag. Can you believe it? Now, I guess you know why I’m …

Taiwan Hotel Price New Year Period - horizontal

A Rude Shock: Book Hotels Early if Traveling to Major Taiwan Cities over the New Year (Plus AsterSpring-Dermalogica Workshop)

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my full disclosure.

I totally switched off from social media and blogging over the weekends because I’d received a rude shock – Taipei and Taichung hotels are up to five times more expensive during New Year’s Eve and New Year 2019. At time of writing (a full seven weeks prior to New Year 2019), many good accommodations are already fully booked. Even Airbnb units that often priced themselves low at $20 to $40 also inflated the price such that a …

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my full disclosure.

Hey there, How’s your weekend been? I just came back from a Staycation in Singapore and sadly, it was one horrible experience. That Airbnb stay affected my mood so much I actually couldn’t sleep at all on their comfy and luxurious mattress. And I couldn’t write for a few days even though my intention was to do full-scale writing at the ‘serene’ retreat. Sadly, this bad Airbnb example had to come from my country. But I …
