Places to View Autumn Foliage in Taiwan

If you check around for the best places to catch autumn foliage in Asia, South Korea and Japan always tops the list. But I’ve always found Taiwan to be a strong contender whether it’s food, mountain views, cherry blossoms or even fall foliage. Also, doesn’t hurt that air tickets and accommodations in Taiwan are relatively lower than its more popular neighbouring countries! Here’s a round-up of the best places to film your own romance drama:

Whether you’re flying in from Taipei or Kaohsiung, there’s someplace for everyone. Furthermore with Scoot’s very generous deals out of Singapore, catching the autumn foliage is even more accessible nowadays. Aren’t we privileged to live in a time where all 4 seasons are just a flight away?
