    Chasing Waterfalls in Fuxing District

    As the weather becomes warmer, I’m venturing farther out of my city to discover waterfalls Taiwan has to offer. Last weekend was no different. My friend Daisy and I got on our scooters and made the two hour ride over to Fuxing district where we trekked to two waterfalls, 水簾洞瀑布 Shuiliandong Waterfall and 幽靈瀑布 Youling Falls.

    Mid-Autumn Festival in Taiwan

    On October 4th, 2017, Taiwan celebrated the Mid-Autumn Festival. In Chinese, we call it 中秋節 Zhongqiu Jie and it’s celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th month on the lunar calendar when there is a full moon. Every year, one of my aunts hosts a barbecue at her house and invites all our family members to join.

    Restless in Zhongli

    A city guide to Zhongli, Taiwan. Zhongli is a small district within Taoyuan City. There isn't much to do around here because it's such a small town, but I did my best to look at things from the perspective of a person visiting Zhongli for the first time.
