Travel Taiwan: 12 Incredible Images From Our Taiwan Photographers

In the past six months, the writers here at MSW have stepped up the pace in an effort to promote Taiwan as an Asian travel destination. We’ve had an incredible response to our Travel Taiwan series.

The images that you see here today were contributed by an online community of photographers called Taiwan Photographers. We look forward to bringing you more images from Taiwan in the coming months.

Karl says:

Wonderful selections of several of Taiwan’s diverse, but beautiful attractions. I lived there for 2+ years but I never visited a few of the places shown here. I’d love to return.

Logan says:

Great collection and gave me a few new ideas for my final ten days trekking through Taiwan. Thank you!!


Dina says:

Great photo collection! I like the Ba Yan Wild Spring and sunset photo a lot, but I hope there’s nobody die out of the butcher knife massage!

Nancie says:

Beautiful shots here Carrie.

They are excellent pictures but number 11 freaked me out. Fear of heights and that photo makes it feel like I am actually on that bridge!


I really like your “Dome of Light” pic. The “Making Noodles” one is also nice. Good post; you’re bringing some pretty vivid images of Taiwan out here.

Sonya says:

Super cool Taiwan photos! I especially fancy the Sunrise on Jade Mountain!

Stu says:

Thanks for including my photo, Carrie! Some great images, I really like the one from Yushan.

Expat Shooter says:

Great photos. I need to visit Taiwan again when I have more time to look around.

Angela says:

Aww gorgeous photos, probably I would avoid the butcher massage! :)

Fili says:

Terrific. Loving this. ^_^
