    Jiufen (near Taipei) is a quaint little old town with great views and traditional Taiwanese snacks. I was utterly charmed during my first visit, but years later when I returned a Starbucks had appeared. Just a little caveat …

      Thanks for the Taiwan tips Fo! How many times have you visited Taiwan? It is currently on the “maybe list…..”

    Agreed with Jiufen! It’s an amazing town to visit. We also recommend Tainan is a must visit city which offers rich heritage and culinary experiences!

    We have a blog post about Jiufen, hope you like it! :)

          sounds fantastic. Taiwan is still one of the countries on the fringe of making it into the HoneyTrek. we want to, but each country is holding onto us longer than we planned (oh the amazing world!)
