What we're about

According to Meetup.com, we are "One of the most active Meetup groups in the world"

Taiwan Travel & Language Exchange is evolving into an umbrella structure for people all over Taiwan to coordinate joint activities with and for people who want to practice or learn English, get together to socialize, go hiking with experienced volunteer leaders, or join occasional one-time activities.

While Taiwan is often described as 'a small island,' it's large enough that it is both complex and expensive for anyone to attend events everywhere. As a result, most of the Social Networking activities tend to be centered in Taipei and everyone else has been ignored.

So, no matter where in Taiwan you are located, we invite you to join this group. Existing members in your area will do their best to get you involved in local events and the group itself will give you a view of things all over Taiwan. If you should find yourself traveling or moving to another area, you will already have contacts you can connect with.

While English is the most common language among us, Mandarin Chinese is equally important and welcome.

Who should join us?

Anyone who can manage enough English or Mandarin to communicate in this setting is welcome.

Anyone who seeks opportunities to socialize with speakers of one or both of these languages will find them here.

Anyone living in Taiwan or planing to come here is also welcome.

Anyone not living or traveling to Taiwan but interested in what people are doing here is welcome but you are less likely to find much benefit.

If you use this Meetup group to distribute commercial advertising, you will be warned and may be banned without further warning!

Wujiutongshan Footpath nearby invites you to get to know Luzhu from a brand new perspective! Wujiutongshan Footpath is 4 kilometers long and consists of 5 trials. The height difference is 80 meters which will make you sweat and challenge your limits! The name of Wujiutongshan Footpath dates back to the Ming Dynasty. Mr. Tsai and his five alcoholic sons moved to this place. Each of them drank a bucket at a time. Thus, the place was named Wujiutongshan (five wine buckets mountain). Another saying goes that villagers in the past would take their cows to drink water here. Thus, the name Niusuitongshan (cow water bucket mountain) came along and was phonetically turned into Wujiutongshan nowadays. On holidays, Nantien Gong on Changxing Road is always packed with pious believers and hikers. The hiking gate to Nankanshan Footpath at Nantien Gong Parking Lot was funded and built by passionate hikers. The 170-step stone staircase named “Yingguang Love Stairs” is mild and safe. Following the concrete path passes Chunchiu Pavilion, the 155-meter high Nankanshan is a great spot to overlook the Taiwan Strait and the international airport. There is another trail named Liufu Footpath that also leads to Wujiutongshan which is slightly covert and bumpy. Passing by Wangyiu Pavilion, sculptures of five wine jars are frequently seen along the way.The Wujiutongshan Resting Pavilion where you can overlook the Guanyin Statue is also where other trails meet. Continue straight and you will arrive at the Fude Ancient Road. Turn left and you will connect to Haishan Road and Huanshan Footpath. Luntou Fude Temple is located at the intersection of the two paths. The intriguing scene of a temple within a temple attracts many visitors. The highest point of the trail is the peak of Shanbishan where Chinese silver grass flourishes in fall and turns the mountain into curious white. https://travel.tycg.gov.tw/en/Travel/Attraction/1315 http://yingtingshih.pixnet.net/blog/post/178116015-%E7%AC%AC0380%E7%AF%87%5B%E6%A1%83%E5%9C%92%E8%98%86%E7%AB%B9%5D%E4%BA%94%E9%85%92%E6%A1%B6%E5%B1%B1%E9%A2%A8%E6%99%AF%E5%8D%80%EF%BC%8F%E7%92%B0%E5%B1%B1%E6%AD%A5%E9%81%93 https://udn.com/news/story/7158/2560841 http://www.tonyhuang39.com/tony0683/tony0683.html
