Taroko National Park │ Travel Taiwan

Have you ever heard of Taiwan 🇹🇼 ?
Taiwan is in East Asia, neighboring Japan, China, and the Philippines.
Taiwan is being talked around often in the news, mostly for political reasons! However, what lies behind is a country with its unique beauty that most people do not have the chance to see. Taiwan, for sure, is flying under the radar for travelers.
Taroko National Park covers around 92,000 hectares of the Central Mountain Range, ranging 36 km from the north to south and 42 km from the east to west. Some of the cliffs are above 3,000m in elevation, which provides a spectacular marble steep gorge view. Unquestionable, this is one of the most beautiful parks we have been, it’s nothing but spectacular.

Hsin Chen

Hsin Chen

Hi, My name is Hsin and I am a third-culture kid from Taiwan, my partner was raised in a mixed Brazilian-Catalan family, and we have 2 daughters together. The best part about being a multicultural family is that we have more cultural experiences. We grow knowledge and perspectives in a global context.  We moved 11,000 km from Taiwan to Barcelona where we are now based to embrace multiculturalism and establish family values of our own. 

“Nanani”  was how my multilingual daughter expresses “where” in Chinese. I have decided to go with it, meaning living with the world in mind.
