on May. 10, 2018 by

An ultimate dream came true, a free flight to Taiwan for the Reformatt Show! Special thanks goes out to all subscribers for watching, liking and commenting on all my videos.

It took many years working on the Reformatt Show and the Reformatt travel guides to get the show to a level high enough to record even more amazing videos for you guys. I could not have done this without you, it took many months preparing for Taiwan and to end up with the amazing footage you'll be able to watch in upcoming Taiwan episodes.

EVA Air is one of the best airliners I've ever flew with, the customer service and cleanliness are unmatched. Our plane was the last to leave Toronto Pearson Airport at 1:45am. It was also the longest direct flight I've ever been on, 15 and a half hours from Toronto to Taipei on flight BR35. The flight took us over the arctic circle, into Siberia and a took smooth curve around North-Korea to avoid crazy rocketman's rockets.

The food on EVA Air was out of this world, quality meals and a wide selection of drinks, EVA Air tickets are usually a bit pricer than charter airliners but you get incredible service even in economy class. My favorite movie on this flight was Teiichi: Battle of Supreme High. To my own surprise, they provided metal cutlery on the plane, including metal knives, it felt great eating food properly on a plane again.

I was extremely surprised to be welcomed by a private tour guide holding a sign with my name on it, and a private driver waiting outside to take us around Taiwan for the next 8 days. You will be convinced as to why Taiwan left a lasting impression on me after you watch my upcoming episodes.

Another big surprise was staying at Palais de Chine, one of the best hotels in Taipei. In my hotel room I found this nice welcome gift of treats including the Reformatt logo printed on one of those sweets. Staying at Palais de Chine was more than I could ever wish for, a gorgeous room with a jacuzzi, large shower, high-tech toilet and very comfortable beds, highly needed after long days of filming. Palais de Chine also offers a wide selection of delicious dishes at their buffet, one of the best dim sum experiences I enjoyed in Taiwan.

After filming for more than a week in Taiwanese cities Taipei, Tainan and Kaohsiung, I took a flight to Tokyo to continue recording another season for the Japanese Reformatt series after which I flew back to Taiwan for a second time to finalize the footage for the Taipei Nightlife video.

During my second stay in Taiwan I took the Taoyuan MRT metro to downtown Taipei, their MRT metro service is one of world's best! I found myself a roomy AirBnB just a minute walk from Taipei 101. Another personal thing I really enjoyed was the arcade center in downtown Taipei, especially for having Initial D8 together with all the mind-blowing experiences around the country making this one of the best trips I had ever been on and I look forward to returning to Taiwan in the near future to record the entire East coast.
