Exploring unique and off the beaten track areas of Taipei and its suburbs is the focus of the WTIC Exploration Group. The purpose is to find a new rarely visited scenic area, an undiscovered cultural event or to discover and artistic craft unique to Taiwan. Together we take public transportation, sometimes rent a bus and often find a neighborhood restaurant to try. The goal is a better understanding of the city we all call home. and the chance to share that city with friends new and old.

Exploration Group had five unique trips in 2022. Beating the hot summer heat and staying cool meant some air conditioned events, but together we shared some great adventures and learned much about Taipei.

  1. Strawberry picking at Martine’s Organic Farm

  2. National Railway Museum

  3. Chiang Ching Kuo Chi-Hai Cultural Park

  4. Lin An Tai Historical House & Museum

  5. Grand Hotel Newly refurbished and renovated East Tunnel

Once you indicate an interest in the Exploration Group, we will send email information about upcoming trips three to four weeks prior to the trip. We look forward to seeing you on our next adventure.
