October is perfect for travelling to Taiwan. The temp stays around 25C and the local holiday makers are gone. A week was just enough to circle the island on a motorcycle and to visit a few popular attractions. I rented an old but still in good shape Yamaha SR150 which turned out to be perfect for the mountain roads in Taiwan. It was cheap too. Contact: Jeremy at email@example.com if you want to rent one. Places visited: Taipei (city), Taroko Gorge (hiking), Green Island (diving), loop around the island (motorcycling).
Total km: 1585.
Highlights: people, food, Taroko gorge, mountain roads. Nuisances: city traffic around Changhua, slow car drivers.
