Tsai Daphne

I was born and raised in Taipei. I love interacting with local people when travelling, and getting some recommendations about where to eat and where to have fun. When I travel to a new city, I try to find the best-hidden gems to get lost in and most of the time it is a good way to see a different side of the city. Let me help you in the same way to find the best parts of my vibrant city.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our virtual tour of Taiwan. Our host, Daphne Tsai, gave us a wonderful tour of the beautiful Longsham temple in Taiwan. She then introduced us to all the quirky and cool aspects of Taiwan, such as its herb market and vibrant night market. Taiwan has a very unique and vibrant culture, and our host graciously made us feel at ease and answered all our questions. We truly felt as if we were standing right next to her while she took us on the tour! After this excellent experience, we shall surely visit Taiwan sometime in the future.
