Despite having visited Taipei on the to-and-fro of my 2014/2015 Christmas trip to New Zealand, the nature of print media means the travel feature I wrote back then has only just now been published.

I managed to break up the long haul Frankfurt-Auckland flights with two, day-long stopovers to explore the sights and tastes of this fascinating city.

You can read about it here, on the Otago Daily Times website.

Although I had a blast exploring Taipei, I’m still a newbie to stopovers since I try not to fly so often.

So what are your favourite stopover destinations, and why?
