As Chinese New Year and Lantern Festival both tend to fall in February depending on the year, culture buffs will be thrilled at the chance to travel in Taiwan during the month of Februaryfestive celebrations everywhere!

In Taiwan, the coldest time of the year starts in January. It can be cool and/or cloudy and most homes are not heated.

Winter officially starts from December, but visitors to Taiwan in December can still enjoy most outdoor attractions as the weather stays mild. However, there is a very remarkable difference in temperature between day and night. Expect the unexpected, in today’s climatic chaos, and be prepared.

Little Chilai (小奇萊)-043

雖然甲午年都還沒有過完,新年也是下週的事情,但已經可以預想大吃大喝加作息顛倒後,一定會有人羞於回到辦公室,面對同事們的揶揄。要上健身房除了要繳月費還要很有毅力,沒有朋友家人的陪伴,實在很難持之以恆, 但是台灣有70%的面積都是山區,利用週末假日約三五好友出門踏青可是很容易啟口的,藉由運動燃燒過度脂肪,不僅增加更人魅力,更是維持健康的好方法。不過還有一個小小問題沒有解決,那就是活動一整天總是會想犒賞自己,結果享用一頓美味午餐,熱量又都回來了。所以本週roundTAIWANround在走訪了全台一千多個景點後,精選出了十個地方,周邊沒有美食的誘惑(或者根本沒有食物可獵),且不需要特殊技能或重裝備,就可以輕鬆欣賞風景又減肥。
