New Taiwan Travel App — Taiwan for Culture Vultures

A new Taiwan Travel App from Gecko authored by the prolific and highly respected Taiwan writer, Steven Crook, has recently become available.

Taiwan for Culture Vultures Guide App

Steven recently told me he is excited about the app because he was able to delve into attractions and topics in much more depth and breadth than was possible for his traditional print guidebook — and that no guide book can, unless you want to carry a phone book-size guidebook in your bag!  Many of the places he researched for the popular Bradt print guidebook  that he was simply unable to include, as well as places that opened after its publication, are in this app.

Culture focus; temples, museums, architecture, gods, festivals, history…

As the title suggests, the book focuses on cultural attractions; temples, museums, architecture and the like. At $2.99 you can’t go wrong — buy it just to learn about Taiwan whether you live here, want to travel here or just want to learn about Taiwan’s art, culture and history from one of Taiwan’s most established travel writers. Also a writing coach, this erudite scribe is a pleasure to read; his writing is perceptive, sensitive, unbiased, and above all — knowledgeable.
