Taiwan Preview

Next week I’ll be going to Taiwan for about 2.5 weeks. It’ll be my third visit. I’ll spend some time in Taipei but will likely also travel around the country a bit.

Here’s a selection of images from the first half of my 2005 trip. I’ll post some more in the next day or so.

The first image is Sun Moon Lake, a few from the east coast, Taroko National Park with its famous gorge and Tunnel of Nine Turns, and my favourite places to hangout – temples. In this case the first half of the temple images below were from Jenlan temple in Dajia Township (alternate spelling: Chenlan temple, Tachia Township), home of the goddess Matsu. The old temple is Longshan (Lungshan) temple in Lugang (Lukang) and the rooftop and pillars images are of Wenwu (Wunwu) temple overlooking Sun Moon Lake.
