Baishawan and Linshanbi Cape: An easy daytrip to the seaside
Following instructions from a website about beaches near Taipei, I traveled to Baishawan (白沙灣White Sands Beach), which was supposedly one of the best and closest beaches to Taipei.
 
A walk on the wild side at Pingxi Stone Candle
The gray sky has been threatening rain all morning, and as I edge cautiously up the long, sloping rock face at the summit of the peak towards the brink of the sheer cliff beyond, it starts to drizzle, although I hardly notice it, as I'm already damp from the sweat I've worked up in getting up here.
 
In search of Yangmingshan's last wild hot spring
Forcing our way through silver grass taller than our heads, and trying to avoid shallow pits and depressions in the ground beneath, we had no choice but to hope the directions we'd been given were correct as we struggled to find the start of the path to one of Yangmingshan's best hidden treats: the untouched hot springs of Lujiaokeng (鹿角坑溫泉).
 
Hiking Da Tzukeng Old Trail to recall "gold fever" in Taiwan
The great popularity enjoyed by the Gold Ecological Museum at Jinguashi (金瓜石) since it opened a couple of years ago is proof that the gold rush era continues to exert a strong pull on the public's imagination.
 
The ancient pines of Aman Peak
In comparison with many of Taiwan's more famous ancient trees, the Dasheng Tree (大神神木), on the slopes of Aman Peak (阿屘尖) on the border between Taoyuan and Taipei Counties is a mere baby in size.
 
A short walk to a stunning viewpoint: Mt. Nanzilin
Perched high above the union of the East China Sea and the Pacific Ocean, the area around Jinguashi and Jiufen on the northeast coast of Taiwan is a relatively new discovery for me, but is turning into one of the most exhilarating and tempting hiking areas anywhere within easy reach of Taipei City.
 
Gold mining country: Xiao Tzukeng Old Trail
Two things immediately stood out as I followed Xiao Tzukeng Old Trail near the Taipei County town of Ruifang one beautiful early morning recently.
 
A two-day motorcycle trip to the North Cross Island Highway
It was a long weekend, and we decided to embark on a motorcycle trip over the Central Mountain Range, using the North Cross Island Highway. We had ample time, and chose a two-day trip.
 
Yangmingshan's 'Demon Steps' provide a secluded escape
September is here, yet still the heat and humidity make it a hostile environment for those of us seeking a good long hike in the hills.
 
Paradise found: Fu Xing's peach orchards, scenic views
As a diehard fanatic for fresh fruit, I can absolutely appreciate how it is so readily available during the summer months in Taiwan.
