9 Days Family Vacation to Taiwan


My wife told me that my blog is too dry as it contains just trading information and therefore I decided to add in own family experience into this blog so that my readers and students can better understand me as a person and not just my blog.

In this post, I am going to share with you my 9 days family trips to Taiwan on April 2016 so that for those of you who maybe interested in going to Taiwan in future can use this as a reference to your tour planning.

Actually this trip is made up of 3 families including 2 families of our close friends.

Day 1: Kaosiung Taiwan

We went to the Fao Kuang Shan Temple for sight seeing and I must say that the place is really magnificent. During the tour, there are 3D theatre where they teaches children moral ethic through the 3D cartoon.

Day 5 to 9: Taipei  

There are no photos for Taipei as we are too busy shopping and eating and therefore I have nothing to post here.

Overall Taiwan is a very nice place to go eating, shopping and sight seeing.

      Nope, we usually drink at night time after all the kids are sleeping.
