When it comes to popular getaway destinations within Asia, Taiwan definitely ranks high on the list for Singaporeans.
Some, like myself, even consider the place a more affordable quasi-Japan since the mining town of Jiufen did provide real-world inspiration for Hayao Miyazaki’s award-winning animation, Spirited Away.
Less than five hours away by plane from Singapore, Taipei is famous for its delectable food and warm hospitality, and most people will be familiar with at least one or two top attractions in the capital.
Case in point? The 60,000-strong crowd that descended upon The Grounds @ Kranji earlier this year during the Shilin-inspired pop-up event.
