Yangmingshan, the national park closest to Taipei, is most famous for it’s hiking and breath-taking views, but it is also a great place for rivertracing.  The Touqian River 頭前溪 to the north-east of the park is a particularly beautiful place to cool down and challenge yourself climbing some big waterfalls.

At long last, after a busy month for all of us, we’ve finally been able to sit down and put the finishing touches to our final video! The last stage of voting begins on the 1st of October and runs until the end of that month. After that it’ll be a tense wait until the 15th of November, when the winners of the million dollar prize will be announced.

Hopefully by putting this together, we’ve been able to inspire more people to get out there and enjoy the best parts of Taiwan, it’s moutains, rivers and jungles. And we’d all like to thank everyone for their continuing support especially all the people who helped us out all the way on the trip.

Cheers! And enjoy!

We finally made in back to Taipei late last night after four fantastic days of travelling down the east coast of Taiwan. We’ve all had a great time and looking back on it, it’s amazing just how much we managed to fit into only four days.

Eventually, when we’re all sorted out and fully recovered, I’ll publish an itinerary of what we did with details so that if anyone is interested in doing any of the activities will be able to use it as a guide.

In the meantime here are the videos and don’t forget to check back soon for the final video!!!

Thanks for all the support!

Following the success of Australia’s “best job in the world” competition, the Taiwan tourism bureau has decided to create a similar competition.
