Travel time: end of September 2019 - early October 2019

During the National Day holiday in 2019, I seized the last opportunity to travel independently and traveled to Taiwan. During the political turmoil in Hong Kong and the general election in Taiwan, a lot of efforts were made to facilitate this trip, mainly due to the issue of pass procedures in mainland China.

Building 101, if you understand the year it was built, and then think about what the mainland was doing at the same time, the gap was huge.

Taking the high-speed rail to Taichung is generally similar to the mainland high-speed rail. The mainland high-speed rail is a little smoother and less noisy than Taiwan's, but some details are not as good as Taiwan's.

There is no high-speed rail in the eastern part of Taiwan. In contrast, Hainan Island has a high-speed rail around the island. This may be due to the complex geological conditions and frequent earthquakes in eastern Taiwan.

Paragliding🪂 is a good activity, but the waiting time is a bit long.

If you look carefully, you can see the Central Mountains of Taiwan from the sea. The altitude of the Central Mountains is actually very high, higher than most places on the third level of the mainland.

Taiwan is a very good place. The people are very friendly, there are many delicious foods, and the food is relatively safe compared to mainland China. It is a democratic society with few Chinese groups, and the air is also good.

Personally, I feel that the core of Taiwan is Chinese culture, but it is greatly influenced by Japan. I recommend young people from mainland China to visit and communicate with each other, so as to reduce misunderstandings by learning more about it.
