Didn’t get to venture outside of Taipei much (unfortunately). But we did make it to Taroko Gorge (last 3 photos), which was pretty breathtaking and surreal. The fleeting and changeable nature of the place was heightened by the typhoon warning that day. Lovely people and great food. Do check out their night markets (Xilin, Shida etc). If you have more time, do go to Alishan and Sun and Moon Lake, I hear they are must-gos.
