Taiwan is a really convenient destination for our family to visit.  It’s not too far from Singapore, and we don’t have to worry about language barrier.  Many Singaporeans visit Taiwan rather frequently, but we have only been there once ourselves as a family.

During that one visit, to be honest, we didn’t even plan to visit Taiwan.  We wanted to visit Okinawa in Japan. And with the lack of (reasonably priced) direct flights from Singapore to Okinawa, Taipei was the best spot to make a transit.  We decided that since we were going to be in Taipei for transit, we should just stay a few days before and after our Okinawa trip to do some sightseeing.  And of course to hit the night markets for FOOD.

During the few days we were there, we decided to just grab a THSR (Taiwan High Speed Rail) pass and speed from Taipei (in the North) to Kaohsiung (in the South) just to get a feel of the country.   And I was pleasantly surprised by how family- friendly the country was, regardless of which part of Taiwan we found ourselves in.

In all our travels, Taiwan was the country that we found it EASIEST to find family rooms in hotels.  Almost every hotel we looked into had triple or quad rooms to offer.  And at extremely reasonable prices.

In Taiwan, the kids were also very well-entertained, as there seemed to be an amusement park, indoor playground or family cafe everywhere we went.  Even when we didn’t intend to find one, we would come across one in our face.

If you are looking for a destination in Asia to bring kids to, you really can’t go wrong with Taiwan.   And on this page, we share our itinerary, travel tips and write-ups of some of the places we visited.
