hey gorgeous... welcome to taiwan

why taiwan?

The big bash happens in October each year, where Taipei drapes itself in extra rainbows for its annual Pride Festival, drawing hundreds of thousands of revellers from the LGBT community to celebrate together. Year round, you’ll find Taipei one of the most welcoming countries in Asia, which accounts for why it attracts so many gay travellers and allies alike.

 

Being the popular spot that it is, Taipei doesn’t fall short on its offering of exciting things to explore. Gawp up at the incredible Taipei 101, a uniquely designed skyscraper standing tall at a whopping 1667 feet (a definite shower, not a grower!). Shop ‘til you drop in the building’s mall and fill your boots in any of their mouth watering restaurants. Get lost in Shilin Night Market, wandering the cascading avenues of stalls and immersing in a melting pot of food, people, games and nicknacks. Ximen-ding is the unofficial gay district in Taipei where you’ll find an abundance of culture and options for shopping and entertainment. The walking street in this area is known as the ‘Harajuku of Taipei’ on account of its thriving love of Japanese subculture, including arcades, street artists, watering holes and quirky fixtures.

 

Take a refreshing breather from city life and hop on a 2 and a half hour train ride south to the stunning Taroko National Park, home to Taroko Gorge. The 19km long canyon stretches and weaves around impressive sites such as the small town of Tianxiang, Water Curtain Cave and the Baiyang waterfall. While you’re stretching your legs outside of the city, venture further down to the foothills of Taiwan’s Central Mountain Range and ride the ropeway cable car to take in the stunning views of Sun Moon Lake. Once you’ve picked your jaw back up off the floor, you can swing by the Aboriginal Cultural Village theme park to see what traditional life was like in previous centuries for indigenous communities of the region. Soak up the scenery with a boat ride on the sparkling blue water nestled in a valley surrounded by mountainous terrain.
