It’s hard to describe exactly what Addiction Aquatic Development is because it’s so much more than just a seafood market or restaurant. It’s like a seafood superstore the likes of which I have never seen anywhere else. If you love seafood, then it’s something you need to see for yourself to understand.
Opened in late 2014, RAW is the newest restaurant of Taiwanese-born chef André Chiang. In less than four years, it’s become one of Taipei’s hottest restaurants, praised equally for its striking interiors as it is for its innovative tasting menus.
Rainbow Village and Gaomei Wetlands are two interesting but often overlooked attractions in Taichung, mainly because they’re more difficult to get to on your own. Kkday makes it easy by offering guided tours to both places that start either in Taipei or Taichung.
Just a day after our tour of Taroko Gorge and we were already talking about coming back. There’s so much natural beauty to be found here that the two days we spent in Hualien felt hardly enough. But as breathtaking as Hualien is, it wasn’t just its natural beauty that resonated with us. We fell in love with the atmosphere too, and its vibe.
Before our trip, I read that Taiwan’s east coast is near and dear to the hearts of many Taiwanese. For them, it’s a special place, perhaps the most beautiful in Taiwan. We went on a day tour of Taroko National Park and our guide Tony described how it’s one of the only places in the country where you could enjoy the mountains and ocean all at once.
We tried our hand at urban shrimping in Taipei a few years ago and had the best time. So when I saw this Hualien night shrimping tour on Kkday, I didn’t give it much thought. Urban shrimping is fun, but here, we’d be doing it for real in an actual river. Awesome!
If you’ve never heard of Taichung, it’s Taiwan’s second biggest city. It’s about an hour south of Taipei in Central Taiwan and is home to the National Museum of Natural Science and the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts. It also boasts the country’s biggest night market – Fengjia Night Market.
Taiwan has approved the visa-free program for Filipinos. Once implemented, all Philippine passport holders will be able to enter Taiwan visa-free. Until then, this post will tell you all you need to know to secure a tourist visa to Taiwan.
