2002 ISSUE IS OUT NOW!
Note From the Editor
I recently had the enjoyable opportunity to host a Taipei
friend who, in his few years of living in Taiwan, had NEVER
been to Taichung. Needless to say, I was somewhat horrified
at this piece of information. However, we made up for lost
time and, after only a few hours, he was remarking on what
a great city Taichung was. He returned to Taipei vowing
to visit central Taiwan again soon.
Much is made of rivalries and contrasts between Taipei
and its number-two counterpart in the south, Kaohsiung.
Fortunately, the relationship, geographically and otherwise,
between Taipei and the island's number-three city, Taichung,
seems to be much more closer. Residents and businesses constantly
remark on close ties between the two and tendency for the
latest trends and tastes to slide south from Taipei to Taichung
first, before eventually reaching the south. Equally important
is the fact that Taichung and central Taiwan have become
a top getaway for northerners looking for an enjoyable time-out.
For these reasons, we have decided to do a cover story
swap of sorts between Taiwan Fun and its Taichung sister,
COMPASS, this month. Taipei readers making summer plans
should check out Cheryl Robbins' overview of Taichung's
charms. In the meantime, Taichung readers will be able to
enjoy a similar introduction to Taipei.
If you decide to venture south, take your June Taiwan Fun,
but don't forget to also grab a copy of COMPASS when you
get there. I hope to see you soon in Taichung!
