In search of Taiwan's nightlife, I made my way to Taoyuan, a county neighboring Taipei. For movement within and around Taipei, I used the Taipei MRT (subway system), which is very modern and extremely efficient. In Taoyuan, I entered a Filipino night club called 'Thai Ok' and to be fair it was quite seedy! But otherwise, Taiwan has a pretty good and fun nightlife.

Fo Guang Shan Nantai Temple
Lastly, we were lucky enough to stay at the Fo Guang Shan Monastery, just outside Kaoshiung. Here, we followed around literally hundreds of uniform monks and nuns, who had all made their home at the monastery. In the evening, we joined in their prayers and meditation, whilst in the morning we rose at dawn for t’ai chi outside the main Buddhist temple, followed by breakfast in silence and classes in calligraphy – not as easy as it may look!
