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.

From USD 57 / Group
