Why you choose Taiwan to travel? Taiwan is a high mountain island historically ruled by many outsiders such as autocratic party- K.M.T., Japanese government and Qing dynasty that causes it’s an immigrant-based society composed of various cultures such as Chinese, Japanese, Austronesian and American. Compare to neighbor countries Japan and Korea, Taiwan is diverse in terms of language and culture but quite safe in backpack travel.
By visiting the Old Street, heritage and temple, you will find the traditional art, folk belief still coexist within this modern society. Our democratic stage drives a distinct difference from China nowadays. Finally all the pieces of what happened in the past combined together, the truly local life like the delicious and various food and drinks in Taiwan-special night market.
Travel brought me amazing life experiences, lived in capital of China Beijing for five years, and visited 34 countries, so much enjoyed backpack travel in Latino America. I will be loved to share every lovely thing in my world, my home a harbor city – Keelung and capital where I study and work – Taipei with you.

Recent reviews of this tour guide:
We just returned from our trip to Taipei and were fortunate to have Mila for two days. We recommend her highly and enthusiastically. Our only regret was she did not have an additional day available. We visited sites we would never have been able to see on our own and gained a great appreciation of Taiwanese history and culture. We enjoyed excellent local restaurants we would never have known. Mila is bright and engaging, both humorous and informative and her English is excellent.

It was an awesome experience with HsiaoLan.
She designed an excellent customized tour for my 9 hours layover in the Taipei airport. I arrived the airport very early in the morning, so the tour starts from a breakfast in a market. Then, I learned Taipei's interesting culture and history with her guide. Thanks to her smooth tour, I enjoyed a lot, although my time was very limited. I definitely want to have her tour again.
