Taiwan is probably one of our closest neighboring country. It’s only 218km away from our farthest islands of Batanes. It’s so close I even saw the island when I was in Itbayat on a clear sky morning. It was with excitement I had a chance to explore Taiwan through Taiwan Tourism Board for their campaign Panahon sa Taiwan. Recently, Taiwan recently extended its VISA-Free visit for Filipinos allowing us to enjoy this charming country again. For this trip we went to central areas of Taichung and Nantou County, the north mountainscapes of Yangmingshan and of course the main capital of Taipei.

Summary Video

Here’s a quick stitch of some of the videos I took. I didn’t take much as our group already had a video coverage with our trip KOL Bea Binene which you could view at their FB Page Taiwan Tourism Bureau, Malaysia. But looking at my stuff, I should have taken more. Be sure also to check the IGTV version as it has more content ;).

Day 6 Departure

I really enjoyed Taiwan and never thought I would enjoy this country a lot. They may be Chinese but somehow they are quite different from the mainlanders or even in Hong Kong. More amiable as it seems. And the landscape my nat be far away from ours but they far exceed in terms of infrastructure.

I know there are a lot more places to visit in Taiwan that I wouldn’t hesitate to return. I love the food and how “green” the country is still. Many thanks to Taiwan Tourism Board and Mode Devi for taking me along this trip for taking part of Panahon sa Taiwan.
