Traveling alone wasn't a new thing for me. 6 months back I traveled Hong Kong alone on my Backpack.


Taiwan has always been a place I wanted to be. Its a lesser known country in our part. Its a wonderful place. The life is steady and the people around are the most friendly. Taipei City is the perfect place to be. The Food was the excellent part.

As a backpacker I prefer to stay in Youth Hostels which are very budget friendly costing around Rs.1200 Per night and the best part is you get to meet a lot of people who are like-minded like you. So even I'm traveling alone, I'm never lonely. I always have someone to hangout with. You end up becoming great friends with them and who knows u may travel with them again soon.

Traveling alone makes you know your strengths and your weaknesses. It makes you a better person. 6 months back in Hong Kong, I was a very shy traveler. But in Taipei, I met many people. I used to talk to random people on the streets, locals and who ever come my way. I had a local friend who I met on Couchsurfing website who was really helpful in guiding me throughout the tour.

I had tons and tons of discussions with people from politics to God. I came to know how much Taiwanese don't want them to be labelled as a part of China, their liking for Japan and much more.

Taiwan is a place to go guys. Take it down on your bucket list.

This is the best Hostel I've been to. Its a huge hostel with a common room and also a Kitchen. The rooms were well maintained and the Washrooms were adequate unlike other hostels I met great people here. My room mate, Ting, a Hong Kong guy became a wonderful friend and we still keep in touch and discuss our travel plans.

Best place for shopping and Local Food This was a memorable place for me. 2 Girls approached me and asked if I could give them a radio interview. They do interviews on foreigners in Taipei. It was nice. I met 2 Expats there from the USA and ending up talking around 1 hour about God. Haha

The trek to Elephant Mountain is tiring but worth it as it gives the best view of Taipei 101
