Time to re-discover the Beautiful Island!

Updated: Apr 22, 2019

I am right now visiting one of the most underrated destinations for digital nomads...

I am in Taipei for two weeks to improve my mandarin Chinese (never too old to learn something 😂) and I am surprised that Taiwan did not make it to the list of the top 25 most popular destinations for digital nomads in a survey analyzing 12,000 Instagram images by GapYearEscape...🤔 💰 In Asia, the top nomad destinations were Bali, Chiangmai, Phuket, Bangkok, Singapore, Hong Kong, Sidney...

💰 I think Taipei definitely should have made the list: just based on the visa situation, the cost of living, the infrastructure and the friendliness of its people, I think it compares favorably with many destinations. It also has the tallest mountain in South East Asia (Yushan, Jade Mountain, culminating at 3,952m) and beautiful natural parks. 💰 The vibe is naturally different from beach towns in Thailand. It feels more like a relaxed city lifestyle and prices are as cheap as Thailand.

💰

It does not help of course that even Taiwanese do not speak about their city with superlatives. This modesty is not warranted in my books. Go visit Taiwan!👍 💰 Let me know if you have ever visited and how you liked it 🙏
