As a follow up to “Top 5 tips for hitchhiking in Taiwan” I will share with you my top 3 favourite experiences while hitchhiking in Taiwan. Allot of things happened while being driven around, and these are just a few of the amazing adventures I had!
- Being picked up by a millionaire in a sports car, and being driven around the country side to see all his estates. Followed by a lunch at his house, which had a shiny black Lamborghini on the drive way. See this Instagram post.
- Hitchhiking 130 KM, when the last drivers offers you lunch at his favourite local restaurant, drives you to his friends farm to eat fresh bamboo shoots and chicken eggs, followed by a trip to his other friends garage and fruit farm, to eat various delicious fruits and have a bbq. After all that he drove us to a few sights and let us sleep in a spare room in his house.
- My travel buddy lost her phone in one of the cars we were in while hitch hiking, luckily the driver added us on Facebook. He contacted us the next day and asked us to meet him so he could return it. He drove out to meet us and invited us to join him for sea food at a local restaurant.
