True Love in Taiwan

The good-old perennial travel destination for a leisure and relaxing trip. It can only be Taiwan! It’s near to Singapore and air tickets are relatively cheaper, making it a great honeymoon option for many people. No matter whether you are considering Taiwan for its irresistibly tantalizing eating finds in every corner of its streets and night markets, or for its awe-inspiring scenery, it is a honeymoon destination that won’t let you down! Take a look at these top 3 recommendations W&T has for you if you are planning a Taiwan trip:

1) Stargaze at Nantou (南投)

When Singaporeans think of stargazing, the first thing that comes to mind is probably “Singapore has no stars”. With the “lack of stars”, it will be a fun and exciting, albeit unconventional experience to stargaze when you are overseas. Taiwan has just the perfect place to catch a dazzling array of stars across the night sky. With stargazing as part of your honeymoon itinerary, it will definitely be a romantic and magical memory for the both of you. Embrace your significant other in your arms as you make a wish under the stars. Who knows, you might just be lucky enough to spot a shooting star! Cingjing (清境) is a good location to do some stargazing as it is situated on higher altitudes. If you are heading to Cingjing the next time you travel to Taiwan, why not join in for a stargazing tour? Some homestay inns (民宿) in Cingjing organize such star-gazing tours, where you will travel up to Hehuanshan (合欢山) for an enchanting star-gazing night followed by an enthralling view of sunrise.

2) Wulai (烏來) Hot Springs

How can you not try out the famous Wulai hot spring when you’re in Taiwan? Hot spring baths in a hotel or resort are too mainstream. At Wulai, get ready to indulge in a hot spring experience like never before at the open-air mountainside public hot spring! The hot spring is situated next to the bank of Nanshi River, and directly channelled from steaming rocks beneath. The name Wulai is derived from the Atayal language, a dialect spoken by one of the Taiwanese aboriginal tribes, and refers to “steaming water”. The water of Wulai hot spring is famously known as “beauty spring” for its therapeutic benefits. It contains rich elements of alkaline sodium bicarbonate, and is clear, transparent and odourless. As you and your significant other soak in this soothing hot spring, your eyes are also in for a treat with beautiful natural landscape and waterfall views surrounding you. The popular Wulai Waterfall is estimated to be 80m high, and looks like a spectacular white silky cloth pouring down from the sky above. Pamper your skin with the most natural beauty treatment, and feel wrapped in the tranquillity of nature’s paradise! After a relaxing hot spring, engage in some activities such as fishing, swimming or camping or simply take a stroll along the Wulai Old Street while digging into aboriginal cuisines at Atayal restaurants.

3) Bai Sha Wan (白沙湾), Kenting

When we think of Kenting, we usually think of its pristine white-sand beaches, caves, coral reefs, cool sea breeze and lots of sunshine for an unsurpassable tropical resort stay. Situated at the Southern tip of Taiwan, Kenting boasts a number of gorgeous beaches. With popular beaches jam-packed with crowds, it can get a little annoying trying to have a relaxing dip in the sea, or to find a perfect spot to suntan. Bai Sha Wan is a relatively uncrowded beach in Kenting, slightly hidden away from the main tourist beach spots. You will be delighted to find that you can enjoy a quiet time there with your significant one, with no crowds of tourists photobombing you in the background of the azure, sparkling sea! Bai Sha Wan is known for its long stretch of fine white sands and clear waters, which makes it a wonderful snorkelling spot! It is also ideal for other water sports activities like hang gliding, and rental of equipments are readily available for adventurous couples. There is a campground and some food vendors at the beach entrance, so you can opt to camp there with your loved one for a night. Bai Sha Wan is indeed a water paradise of its own!
