Guaranteed to make your trip to Taiwan extra worthwhile.
At least for me… Coz I am more a hands-on type of guy.
It’s DIY activities instead of just shopping and sight seeing.
I’ve seen this on TV, but now I am doing it here in Shifen.
The attraction, in the northern part of Taiwan, is on a railway.
That’s the fun part. We have to scramble when a train passes.
Watch how the crowd react and run away from the track.
By the way, we have to go on the tracks to release our lanterns.
Be sure to note the vlog side tips if you haven’t been there.
Do you prefer sightseeing, shopping, or activities when traveling?
5 street foods you must try in XiMenDing at night.
On a cold wet night, the buzzling night life continues.
With giant flashing billboards, it’s like NY times square to me.
We are here to taste some classic Taiwanese snacks.
So this is a vlog of me just sharing my eats.
My favorite among all is the Stinky Tofu.

I just completed an experiment that my counterparts think is insane.
I ditched my DSLR/mirrorless, compact camera and even my iPhone.
I vlogged my entire trip in Taiwan with nothing but an Android phone.
No external mic, no external light and no stabilizer, just the phone.
The only accessories I have is a mini tripod and a clip-on wide lens.
There is also a selected video camera app and a video editing app.
The experiment went well (not perfect though) with my S$300 phone.

This just might be the most colorful attraction in Taiwan.
The houses were originally built for the retired Kuomintang soldiers.
The temporary construction was destined to be torn down later.
A resident soldier decided to save the village from demolition.
He painted the walls and floors with cartoon characters and quotes.
Today, Mr Huang still lives there and interacts with visitors.
