500 Arahats Garden (五百罗汉)
I cannot forget my visit to Taiwan's largest Buddhist Temple, Fo Guang Shan Monastery is built on a mountain in Kaohsiung. Although I am a Christian, the visit offered me a cultural and spiritual glimpse into this ancient religion.
Beautifully carved statues of Buddha are found everywhere around the monastery, I was told there are over 10,000 of them. I love the tranquillity the monastery offered. I shall not forget my promise to return for a visit to the majestic Buddha Memorial Center which I missed out on my last trip.
My third visit to Taipei, I never miss a visit to its hotsprings. Dipping in hotsprings can become addictive. :D I could only wish my tiny country has a great hotspring where I could have frequent dips.
old mining town turned into a popular tourist attraction
I fell in love with this charming old gold mining town turned into a popular tourist attraction. It took me an hour's drive by car from Taipei. Many tourists visit this place during the day. I love the cosy tea houses and the artist studios. I would like to stay for a night on my next trip for a different experience of this place.
