Instagramming Around Taiwan

While traveling through Taiwan with AFAR Magazine and Taiwan Tourism, I recorded my initial thoughts and shared my favorite images through Instagram. I had so much fun doing it, I thought I’d share some of my favorite images from that collection to share with you. It’s a great introduction to what experiencing Taiwan is really like.

    Wow, love them. How did you take the first one under ‘sights and attractions’? Just held the phone up to a telescope/viewfinder thing?

      Thanks, that’s actually the beauty of instagram, the freedom to use a variety of filters I wouldn’t normally use with my photos. That one was created with an app called Fish Eye that mimics a fish eye lens.

    I just want to bury my face in that mango shaved ice! Gets me every time. I also LOVE that lanterns shot. Great job capturing Taiwan’s colorful culture, Matt!

    Gorgeous pictures! I’m enjoying reading all your posts about Taiwan. My friend is thinking about making a trip to Taiwan during the spring and I would love to join her. This is making me excited for an adventure there!
