Windmills and tiny crabs at the Kaomei Wetlands
Some of the best travel experiences may come as a surprise, when one does not know quite what to expect. My encounter with the Kaomei (高美) Wetlands, near Taichung (台中), came as just such an experience.

Changhua's stately Confucius temple
Despite its size – in terms of population it's one of Taiwan's ten largest cities – and economic importance, Changhua (彰化) isn't a leading tourist destinations.

Lugang's glass gallery
Lugang (鹿港) in Central Taiwan is rightly known for its traditional architecture and stunning temples. Most of its inhabitants, of course, live thoroughly modern lifestyles, and the township has its share of factories.

Lugang: A taste of bygone times
A chilly breeze from off the coast swept through the streets of the small town, but the sky was still blue with only a few wispy clouds in it. Located just an hour from Taichung and about three hours from Taipei, the quaint town of Lugang (鹿港) makes a good destination for a winter day trip, both because of its historical sites and because of its cheap, delectable cuisine.

As I followed the jostling crowd through the winding alleys of an old market street in Lukang (鹿港), centuries of history suddenly enveloped me from all sides.

Over the past several years, especially since Taiwan joined the World Trade Organization in 2002, local farmers have been forced to diversify in order to survive. Instead of growing rice, fruit or vegetables in the traditional manner, some now cultivate flowers or organic foods.
