My guidebook in Action Asia

Action Asia, a Hong Kong-based magazine that has long championed Taiwan as an adventure travel destination, reports the publishing of Taiwan: The Bradt Travel Guide.

Here's the text:

Until just a few years ago Taiwan was poorly served by guidebook publishers, but there's been a noticeable uptick in quality since 2007 or so. The arrival of a new Rough Guide started the shift, and now comes this latest release in the Bradt series that will appeal to the more culturally-attuned traveller - as well as those keen to avoid the hordes of LP and RG acolytes.

Crook is a long-term resident and the book betrays his love of the island and its people in its attention to the sights and experiences that make it a place simultaneously fast-changing and deeply rooted in tradition.
