You can plan as much as … Continue reading 10 things that surprised me in Taiwan
The second part of our 15 day Taiwan itinerary focuses mostly on Kaohsiung and Taipei. We visited some very popular sights and also some not so popular ones, but definitely worth a stop, if you are there. I also added few extra things you can include in your itinerary, if you have enough time.
I finally put together our Taiwan itinerary. We spend wonderful 15 days in this beautiful country, with stunning nature and vibrant cities. Here is the first part of the perfect Taiwan itinerary.

The temperatures also dropped from hot 30 degrees we were used to to chilling 15.
