My first trip to Taiwan is such a great one. I visited Taipei, Hualien, Danshui in 9 days. I have boarded a Taidong (Green Island 绿岛) flight but the airplane couldn't land Taidong for bad weather.

I have taken many photos I will post them in batches.

Cheers :banana:

here comes the interesting Taiwan motel, very different from that in other countries; it's like lover's hotel.

I got a soccer theme room though;













another hotel nearby
