A friend asked me to return to Taiwan for Christmas and New Year. It was nice to go somewhere besides Thailand for a change to enjoy the celebrations. I like the New Year festivities in Thailand but I was looking forward to a new experience. The photos tell most of the story of my two week visit. There is much more to see in Taiwan so I will be returning again sometime soon.
There are 57 photos. Click on each photo for a larger view.
Market near the Longshan TempleThe people in Taiwan are very friendly and the markets are a nice place to interact with the locals. Even just a nice smile when making a purchase.
Yingge Ceramics MuseumNear Zhungli and a 35 minute train trip from Taipei. I am not that interested in museums but this place kept my interest for three hours. It is one of the best designed museums that I have visited with English language descriptions and video screens explaining local culture and the history of pottery production in Taiwan.
