[ LETTER ]

Thank you

In November, I spent 10 days in Taipei on a business trip. I have been visiting Taiwan for about 15 years and I keep falling in love with it every time I visit.

I am fortunate enough to have a job where I get to travel all around the world and Taiwan is most probably my favorite place to visit. I was based there in 2005 for a little more than a year and made friends who I still stay in touch with.

As an American with very basic Mandarin skills, I can say that the level of English in Taiwan is absolutely amazing.

The people are the friendliest, kindest, most genuine of all the people that I have seen. Taipei is a clean, convenient and fairly priced city, and Taiwanese food is amazing. The night markets never cease to amaze me and Taiwan is truly the “Beautiful Island.”

However, it all comes back to the people. They are the best resource Taiwan has. I want to send a big “thank you” to all the people who greeted me with friendly smiles and acts of kindness. I cannot wait to go back to Taiwan this year.
