Taiwan for Culture Vultures

Taiwan for Culture Vultures, the travel app I've been developing on and off for the past half year is now available as a download for iPhones and iPads, published by Singapore-based Guidegecko. As the name implies, it's very much a guide for those who enjoy temples, museums and architecture.

Much of the content can be read online. Among the entries I most enjoyed writing, and places I especially recommend to visitors, are: the Former British Consular Residence in Kaohsiung; Jinguashi Gold Ecological Park; and Lugang's Cheng Huang Temple. Those three entries, and many others, benefited from the photography of Rich Matheson and Craig Ferguson.

For more details about the project, see this post on my other blog.

Ha! Ha! Hot Kaohsiung!

Ha! Ha! Hot Kaohsiung! is the name of a 120-page booklet just published by Kaohsiung City Government's Research, Development & Evaluation Commission. I was one of the editors for this project.

The booklet has a lot of tourist information (especially about Meinong, Fengshan and Zuoying districts), plus information about restaurants, homestays, shops and hospitals which have received English Emblem awards for bilingual service.
