Wendy is a painfully shy introvert who enjoys traveling for good food and sights. It’s odd that as a foodie Singaporean who lives in Bangkok and enjoys Korean food, she can’t take any spicy food. She also dislikes coriander and parsley (more of 臭菜 to her). Do you know that May 2018 marked her 16th trip to Taiwan since 2010?

Taroko Gorge Tour
The Taroko National Park is best known for its awesome marble-walled gorge as well as its majestic mountain scenery, Eternal Spring Shrine, Swallows' Grottos, Tunnel of Nine Turns（Jiuqudong), and other incomparable sights. The park's spectacular geologic features also encompass such spectacles as the Baiyang Waterfall just above the gorge, and the precipitous Quingshui Cliffs just below it.
