"What kind of Transportation should I take from Taipei to Taichung?"

"Is there any way that I could travel without vehicles, or just on foot?  Is it possible? "

my foreign friends always said to me.  

我的外國朋友來台灣玩時常問我說 : 「從台北到台中坐甚麼交通工具比較好呀?」

「有除了坐車以外的任何方式,能夠到達台中嗎 ?」

 

Actually Taiwan is such a small island, all the weird methods we thought have been carried out.

說真的,台灣佈過就是彈丸小島。大家想過的環島方式都已經有人做過了。 

 

If some ideas popping up in your mind, just try it. You must have a lot company travlling with you on the road.

Introduction of Taiwan :

如果下次來台灣玩,有想到甚麼新的旅行方式,不妨直接做做看,搞不好還會遇到許多做同樣事情的夥伴唷。
