Daphne the Explorer
Hello, I am a Taiwanese native and have been living in Taipei and giving tours of this charming city for many years.
When I travel and visit a new city, I like to go to less crowded areas maybe in the suburbs and get lost in it. It's a good way to see a different view of a city. I like exploring a city through talking with the local people and ask for their recommendations, so that's how I love to guide my guests around as well.
I am quite an active traveler. I like to bungee jumping, diving, hiking, skydiving in different countries. And I believe in the old saying that the world is like a book, if you don't travel, you just read one page. So I want to explore and experience as many places as possible.
Hope to see you on my remote tours!
