    Taiwan Travel 2015 [Day 1] – Carton King Creativity Park and Rainbow Military Dependents’ Village

Let me share a few tips first. We went to Taiwan last April 8-12 and the weather was really cold which was not what we expected. I’ve been monitoring the weather since January and I have been checking forecasts for April. A week prior to our departure, the weather in Taipei and Taichung were already hitting 27-30degrees (Manila at that time was at 34degrees). Who would’ve thought that it will be somewhere between 13-14degrees when we got…
