Meteor Garden(2001) Shooting Locations and How To Get There

As a kid, I dreamt of coming to Taiwan because this series made me feel a thousand feelings. Never had I imagined that this dream will come true 17 years later. Good thing that Taiwan extended their visa-free access for all Filipinos until July 31, 2019.

It was the 10th of September, 2018 when I went to Chiayi, the southern part of Taiwan with the help of Klook. Chiayi is 5 to 6 hours away from Taipei, but if you opt to use Taiwan High Speed Rail you can save lots of time by traveling for only just 2 hours.

YOU CAN BOOK HSR PASS HERE!!!

What it looks like?

  2. Hi Mira! Planning out my Taiwan version of a Meteor Garden pilgrimage and I came across your blog. Just wondering if it took you one whole day to explore NCCU? I assume commuting through Taiwan is efficient? Thank you!

    1. Hello. Of all the trips I had this one is the cheapest. Less than 10k actually. I booked a dorm type accomodation too. I just spent money on transpo, wifi and food.
