Last month I decided to do something different for my birthday and booked a solo trip to visit Taiwan. It was a wonderful 8 days in this very friendly and picturesque country. I landed in Taipei and took the high-speed train down to visit Tainan which used to be the old capital. Sleepy town but full of ancient temples and tasty Taiwanese street food. Heaps of very interesting cafes to visit too. The last remaining 3 days of my trip was spent back in Taipei. I decided to do a day trip to ShiFen old town to experience the more rural side of Taiwan. Many travel to this small town to see the old train line that is still running through the town. The highlight for many is to write wishes on sky lanterns, light it and let it ascend into the sky. There is still so much that I have not seen. I will definitely be back again.
