Time for some feel-good Travel News, my traveller friends! I am just back from a property review in the Himalayas and while I am processing the pictures and memories, I came across this Happy News from Taiwan. Time to plan a Taiwan trip, right?
A lot of surveys over a lot of years have revealed Taiwan as one of the most friendliest countries in the world! Every traveller who has visited Taiwan, agrees to this. People who have completed their dream Taiwan trip, insists on how welcoming the locals are, how helpful ever citizen can be, how safe the streets are and how fantastic the food is.
Sounds like a dream destination, Doesn’t it?
There are a lot of factors that contribute towards making Taiwan a friendly destination. Here are the top three reasons why a Taiwan trip should be planned soon:
- Taiwan’s warm and friendly residents ensure that the travellers have a great and happy experience:Friendly local people means it’s easy to get around, ask for directions and find people to hang out with. Travelling like the locals do is the best way to explore a destination, they say! At times, when the language becomes an issue or there is a communication gap, Taiwanese people go out of their way to help travellers and tourists. Travellers find it easy to immerse themselves in the local culture and experiential travel gets a whole new meaning in Taiwan!
- Cost of living in Taiwan is favourable to Indian Travellers: A highly industrialised, developed and modern nation, the rate of exchange works in the Indian travellers favour. 1 Taiwanese Dollar equals 2 INR which means items like food, drink; experiences such as dining in restaurants, entry into attractions and theme parks; and hotel rooms are affordable for the India travellers who can enjoy a complete holiday experience in Taiwan. This, to me, means more shopping and more good food during the Taiwan trip, right?
- Safety in Taiwan is nothing to worry about:Taiwan is a very safe country even for a solo traveller. So you don’t have to restrict yourself to a what is recommended in guide books only and can do offbeat activities or something else which is unexplored or sounds interesting to you. On your Taiwan trip, be fearless and explore!
