What’s next after our hottest-ever mountain-hiking experience in the morning? In the afternoon of Day 6, we would drive to Shifen and visit Shifen waterfall and Shifen Old Street. Shifen must be one of the most touristy places in Taiwan. People – tourists and locals alike – come here to release sky lanterns, hoping their wishes would come true. Read on and I’ll also share why Shifen Old Street left me feeling unimpressed. Stay till the end and you’ll …

Teapot Mountain

Hiking Teapot Mountain in Taiwan, plus Nanya and Yin Yang Sea on Day 6 (pt 1)

Hiking Teapot Mountain was the highlight of Day 6 of our Eastern Taiwan Tour. In fact, there were so many attractions located along Northeastern Coast of Taiwan that our initial plan was to set off from Luodong at 4am. What? Such ungodly hours! Why so early? If you stay till the end of this story, you would probably suggest that we set off earlier. Other than hiking Teapot Mountain, we also visited Bitou, Nanya, Yin Yang Sea …

Lushui Trail

Best hike of Taroko Gorge was at Lushui Trail! (Day 3)

What a wonderful day on Day 3 of our Eastern Taiwan Tour! That was probably the first day we actually enjoyed ourselves.

It was so stunningly beautiful you have to read this post, okay?   Bright and Sunny Day in Hualien, Taiwan  (7am) After a rather torturous …

Chisingtan Beach

Exploring Shakadang Trail and Chisingtan Beach of Eastern Taiwan (Day 2 – pt 2)

What a morning of Day 2 that saw us getting “bullied” by Taroko Gorge! Would the afternoon of Day 2 be kinder and offer us a respite from the persistent typhoon-rain? The short answer is ‘No!’. Nevertheless, the fearsome Taroko Gorge would still reward us with a spectacular and one-of-a-kind type of scenery that most tourists would miss. I’ll also show you how pretty Chisingtan beach was. Read on.  Sneaking into Swallow Grotto Trail (燕子口) Remember how we …

Taroko Gorge on rainy day

Taroko Gorge on a Rainy Day (Day 2)

Here’s what we did on Day 2 of Eastern Taiwan tour – we explored Taroko Gorge! The whole day was dedicated to this immensely-popular gorge in Taiwan. In fact, that was the reason why we were here in Hualien in the first place. I’m not sure why some would dedicate just a few hours to Taroko Gorge. Honestly, a few hours could only touch the surface, i.e. the “touristy” portion. If you have a choice, get your own …

Aguinid Falls

This is why Aguinid Falls in Philippines is so well-loved by all! (Day 2 – pt 2)

Aguinid Falls was next in line on our Day 2 tour itinerary, after having spent the morning swimming with Whale Sharks and bathing in icy-cold Tumalog Falls. Now listen, I highly recommend Aguinid Falls as a tour destination because it was so unbelievably FUN! Officially, this marked my virgin attempt in hiking up a gushing waterfall. How cool is that?  I won’t hesitate to rank Aguinid Falls as the top 3 highlights of our Philippines 10 Days …
