SANCHONG CITY. NEW MRT STATION OPEN
Sanchong is different to Taipei in that it’s obviously poorer. People everywhere are friendly. A foreigner should relax and feel safe in Taiwan, within reason.
The absence of street bars as per Pattaya (Thailand) attracts red necks elsewhere.
Best, friendliest cat in Taiwan. Shop window adjacent to Sanchong MRT. Such a perfect pose at first it could have been mistaken for a statue.
Street market. Seafood and a small shark (with fins)
Campaigning Taiwan style in Sanchong City. ‘Entertainment’ and local politics combined. Australian politics is asleep by comparison. Democracy is obviously a more important issue in Taiwan.
Australians take theirs for granted, voting is compulsory for everyone over 18 years of age. A few handbills and posters is all you will see in rural Australia, plus media advertising.
Australian market vendors offer customers very little as compared with Taiwan.
Local laws protect shops and restaurants from this type of competition.
