“It takes a village”

Places to lay your head at night

Agoda Amazing website to find hotels in Taiwan. In 2018, they partnered with the LGBT travel platform TravelGay to provide valuable information on accommodations for the community. Extremely easy to navigate and book a hotel quickly without much effort 




Royal  Season  Hotel, Taichung- I stayed here for two weeks in quarantine. My room had a great view of the city with a huge tub and bed.  I was able to unwind, relax and chill while waiting to start my life.  It’s in an amazing location surrounded by shops and restaurants.  When you are in quarantine, it’s important that you have many options for food. The prime location allowed me to get amazing food from Food Panda and Uber Eats. 

The In-house hotel is a great place to stay if you are visiting Taipei. Location is great. I was able to navigate the city with ease. They’re very close to night markets and I could easily walk to LGBTQ sites I wanted to see. The room is very comfortable. They had a huge bed, and a great bathroom. 

The continental breakfast they offer was really tasty. In Taiwan, there aren’t many gluten-free options but there were some choices. You can always have fresh fruit and vegetables. There are also vegetarian options.
The price was a little higher than I’ve paid at hotels ($1,500 NT or 50$ USD) but to me its worth it!



If you are in Taiwan, I highly recommend the Bivy Rock Climbing Guides. They are a husband and wife who are very kind and love what they do. Kelly is the best.  If you want to challenge yourself, check them out here.
