Jennifer Patience's Taiwan Posts

Taipei has a lot of people and a lot of traffic and what I found interesting here was the layers of transport from ground up. The subway (MRT) here is running…

In Taichung on Taiwan's west coast we visited the Folklore Park. Kind of like an outdoor museum it was built to show Taiwanese traditional life. There is an…

For a long while I was confused by the representations of Buddha. There is the Buddha as seen in India and around Korea and Thailand [photoblog.com] who is…

You know when you see a huge line of people queuing up at a food stall that there must be something tasty going on. On my first trip to Taipei walking around…

A fantastic name for a shop, and one that definitely gets your attention. It's a little disappointing then to see that it is some kind of arcade gaming hall,…

Leaving the main street and entering Longshan Temple in Taipei is like stepping into a colourful capsule. While it's not big in size it is splendid in colour…
