TEN THINGS TO DO IN TAIWAN

1. Have a relaxing dip at one of Taiwan's natural hot springs. Beitou Hot Springs is easily accessible and is located within the city of Taipei. Book a private villa or enjoy a public bath with the locals.
2. Hire a driver for the day and visit attractions that are only an hour away from Taipei. Yehliu and Jiufen are only two of the many destinations you can travel to.

3. Pretend you're inside Alice's Wonderland at Yehliu and get lost among the 180 mushroom rocks an the area. Just be careful not to touch them or you could get reprimanded by the caretaker (based on experience!)

4. Enjoy a cup of tea at A-Mei Teahouse in Jiufen. If you're a fan of the movie Spirited Away, this is must-visit because the teahouse is the inspiration for the famous bathhouse seen in the movie.

5. Take the Taiwan High Speed Rail and visit Taiwan's provinces without the traffic. Visit Taichung and explore the city, or from there, take another bus and travel to Nantou to visit the famous Sun Moon Lake.

6. Have a chat with "Rainbow Grandpa" at The Rainbow Village. Better brush up on your Mandarin first, though! While you're there, support his art by purchasing a souvenir from his shop. You can even have it signed if you like.
 


7. Take your best Instagram-worthy photo at the lavender fields in  Alice's Wonderland at Yehliu. The windmills and fake piano are there for a reason (and that's for your photo session!).




8. Get your lavender fix at The Lavender Cottage. Spray yourself with lavender mist upon entry and grab a cone of their signature lavender ice cream. At the shop, take your pick from all kinds of lotion, soaps, and other goodies. You can even bring home lavender-scented bubbles for your little ones!


  
9. Take a hike and take in the gorgeous views of Taiwan's countryside. Make sure you're wearing your most comfortable shoes because you'll be doing a lot of walking. Bring water, a hat, and a fan if you're visiting during the summer months.

10. Fly sky lanterns at an old railway in Shifen and soak in that nostalgic vibe. Write your wishes on the lanterns and watch it float away into the night sky.
