    Hi,
    Why is Stupid Tourist Series being chosen in the first place?

    I’m glad you asked, Alice.
    In a nutshell, I define stupid tourists as “essentially visitors who could not care less about the place they tour.”

    But Taiwan is a culturally rich and dynamic island.
    Often times, tourists may (and will!) unwittingly tread on a taboo or two – when excitedly experiencing the culture, lifestyle and people!

    Even visitors from Asian countries where cultures can be quite similar.

    Thus this tongue-in-cheek idea of the stupid tourist in Taiwan.

    And I’m sharing here what

      • real travel, practical tips
      • tourists can do to steer away from such quirks of Taiwan

    – and stay sane from embarrassment and culture shock!

    Enjoy Taiwan! :)
