Taiwan built high-speed rail, why can’t California?: Joe Mathews

When it comes to fast trains, a California consensus has hardened: High-speed rail is beyond us. We may be the world’s high-tech capital, but high-speed rail is just too technically challenging for us. We may have one of the planet’s richest economies, but high-speed rail is too expensive. We are a sprawling state of 40 million, but we’re too small to construct even one high-speed rail line. But if we’re right about powerlessness to deliver high-speed rail, then how do we explain Taiwan? My rece...

Outdoor opportunities in Taiwan

Taiwan is a sweet-potato-shaped island surrounded by rugged coastline and long stretches of beaches, with towering mountain ranges running north to south in the center. It’s always been a popular destination for other East Asian tourists for its natural sceneries, most notably YangMingShan and Sun Moon Lake, but its outdoor opportunities have long been overlooked by travelers from the rest of the world in favor of bustling Taipei. Taiwan is secretly one of the best backpacking destinations: e...

Taiwan president quits as party chair after local election setback

The results of the polls, being held just over a year before Taiwan's next presidential election, are likely to please China, which claims self-ruled and proudly democratic Taiwan as its own and has ramped up pressure on Tsai and her administration since she took office in 2016. In the run-up to the elections, Tsai and her government said repeatedly that China was trying to sway voters with "political bullying" and "fake news", accusations that Beijing denied. The DPP lost control of the mayor...

Pollution in Taiwan – Is It Bad? YES, IT’S BAD!

Air pollution in Taiwan is a serious matter that island residents have complained about for years. Taiwan receives a lot of air pollution from China, but Taiwan also produces a significant amount of its own pollution problems. Taiwan’s geography makes air pollution worse because many industrial centers on the north and west coasts of Taiwan are surrounded by high mountains which keep the bad air trapped at city level. Taipei also suffers from this problem. It’s not uncommon to have a completely ...
