Taiwan is my birth country, yet after immigrating to the United States at age 12, I don’t know my precious island much beyond family homes. Fortunately, the blogosphere has saw my island’s beauty and shared it with the world. I’ve scoured the web to find the best resources to plan travels across Taiwan.
