About two months ago, I spotlighted a few YouTube channels where you can get live 24/7 feeds from various locations around Taiwan. It's a good way to take in the sights, observe the weather, and watch the day pass by, but it isn't the same as being on foot. Today, I figured we'd follow that up by finally seeing the streets of Taiwan.

Admittedly I'm a huge sucker for videos with scenic coastal views. There really is no feeling like being out near the ocean as the sun begins to set. This video makes the cut because for a split second I can close my eyes and remember the exact feeling. The warmth of the sun on my skin as the sky finally stops being so harsh and bright while the cooler temperatures start to make their way in.

  • Length: 1 hour, 10 minutes.
  • Includes: Ocean views, alleyways, street vendors.

If there's one thing I've missed in the last few years because of Covid, it's going to a random shopping center just because we can. Despite the lower overall numbers, this is the United States where masks are viewed as oppression and no one is responsible so we still only head out when there's something we're trying to get.

  • Length: 45 minutes.
  • Includes: Skyscrapers, city parks, shopping center.

Ignoring the humidity, there's something special about going for a walk just after it has finished raining. Assuming there aren't puddles to avoid everywhere, everything seems much more quiet and peaceful.

  • Length: 30 minutes.
  • Includes: Alleyways, shopping center, just finished raining.

I love this video because it transitions from what is clearly the center of a city, complete with all of the extravagant hotel exteriors, but eventually it gives way to multiple parks and wide open spaces.

  • Length: 1 hour, 20 minutes.
  • Includes: City streets, fancy building exteriors, parks.

We started off this week's videos with a walk along the oceanfront. To end, let's poke around a wharf complete with boats and boardwalks as day transitions to night. Also there are multiple sections labeled Cute Dogs so you can't go wrong.

  • Length: 1 hour.
  • Includes: Ocean views, boardwalks, cloudy day into night, dogs.

Hope you enjoyed the new format! Going to adopt this going forward because I find it to be both more informative and easier for me to write.

Have a good week!
