Review: Taiwan (Lonely Planet Country Guide)

User Review  - Badariah Yosiyana - Goodreads

quite helpful if you know nothing about Taiwan before. But the book mostly exposed Taipei. Other cities? not that much unfortunately. Read full review

Review: Taiwan (Lonely Planet Country Guide)

User Review  - Caitlin - Goodreads

This book was spot on for my trip to Taipei. The book, a subway map, and a subway day pass were essential to seeing everything I wanted to see while I was there. Read full review

About the author (2010)

Ever since he learned that his dad's airline job meant he could fly for peanuts, Robert has been travelling. His interest in Tibet can probably be traced to early readings of Tintin and, later, to a love of trekking. Robert, a Canadian, lives in Taiwan and speaks Mandarin.
