Hey there!:) I am Shih-Heng from Taipei and if you are a foodie, nature lover or culture explorer? I am exactly your ideal mate to accompany you getting to know this city better! I consider myself open-minded, talkative and patient. I used to live in USA and several countries in Europe and I speak fluent English, Spanish, Vietnamese and a bit German and Catalan. My hobbies are hiking, marathons, cycling, music and exhibitions. Having worked in various industries like manufacturing, travel and software, I am also a licensed tour guide during free time and I have showed 2,000+ international travelers around in Taipei City. Taipei is not just a modern vibrant city but also a paradise with abundant natural landscapes and religious/cultural/historical inspirations. Sounds interesting? Book a tour with me or send me a private message to personalize your itinerary!

About the Tour

Though mostly associated with modern city image, Taipei is actually home of more than 100 hiking trails. In this tour we will explore one of the steepest trails in the neighborhood called Neihu as well as the largest temple here. Besides enjoying the panoramic view of Taipei and getting closer to the astonishing nature, as a citizen living in this area for more than 20 years, I will also share some historical and religious stories only locals are familiar with. In the end of the tour, you also get the chance to buy some local agricultural products and try out the typical Taiwanese tofu pudding (douhua)!

This tour includes the following stops:

- Bishan Temple with panoramic view of Taipei

- Bishan Hiking Trail

- Zhongyong Peak

- Baishihu Suspension Bridge

- Snack time in a local tofu pudding shop

Insider Tip:

- Wear shoes suitable for hiking

- Please bring your EasyCard or coins for local shuttle, the price is TW$15/one way

- Remember to bring your mask. Taiwan is super safe now, yet due to COVID-19 those without mask will not be allowed to take public transport

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: Right outside of the Exit 1 of MRT Neihu Station, you will find me wearing a camouflage hat and holding a red sign "GuruWalk"
