Taiwanese night-market - food section

Living in a Taiwanese town and wondering what’s to do? Let me help you out a bit. It sounds like a somewhat naive question, but I get that alot, even in relatively bustling lively Taiwanese towns. I got that in Tainan atleast a dozen times this past year, mostly from students. As I know …

Cosplay Resturant Tainan - Dear Alice Wonderland (22).JPG

Tired of standard dining? Taiwan offers a wide variety of themed restaurants for you to choose from. I previously wrote about Taiwan’s toilet restaurants, and there are also Hello Kitty places (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6), but this next one I think is slightly more interesting, especially to the male audiences.

Tainan Anping Harbor International Boat Festival 2009 (27).JPG

Last week Tainan City hosted the "International Boat Festival 2009". Tainan City and International in the same title sounds a bit like an oxymoron, doesn’t it? Tainan’s trying. They put up an English website, prepared English flyers and all, but it’s not quite there yet. It would still take a while for Tainan to be […]

You just don’t see that many western-tourists around Tainan, although there’s alot to see. Even the internationals leaving in the city rarely take the time to explore around and appreciate some of the history and beauty that’s in this city. Through a website soon to open up, I came across those wonderful touring Tainan videos, […]

Tainan city view-28.JPG

Tainan city doesn’t have anything that comes close to the Taipei 101 and the Tainan view is of no comparison to the beautiful view of Taipei from the 101, but, there is some to see. The building complex I live in has some of Tainan’s tallest buildings, my building running as high as 24 floors. …
