"pollution" Taiwan Warnings Or Dangers Tip by whygworen

Taiwan Warnings and Dangers: 44 reviews and 33 photos

The first thing I became aware of was (on my arrival in Taipei ) the strong smell of exhaust fumes in the"air" Taipei is not a pedestrian friendly city..beware crosing the streets even on "zebra" crossings.!! It is beyond my understanding that millions of people would burn toxic money in metal pots (on so many occassions )in a crowded and polluted city (Chinese have strong superstitios beliefs).. this can not be good for the environment. I would not reccomend Taiwan as a good tourist destination, value for money is not there....go to Thailand instead .
