  • Capturing a zen moment at the Chiang Kai-shek memorial hall. I love this photo as it depicts the tranquility and serenity of the memorial ground provided by the hard working gardeners tending to their craft. #taiwan #memorial #chiangkaishek  #travelblogger #travelpics #chinese #chinessculture #tourism #foodblogger #nature #naturelover #zen #zenmoment #pictureperfect #perfecttiming #culture #presstrip #luxury  #luxurytravel #luxurylife #waunderlust #travelinstyle #travelblogger #travelpics  #thefoodteasetravel #tripofalifetime #roc #republicofchina #chinesehistory #visittaiwan
  • Having more days in Taiwan than originally planned due to the #supertyphoon mangkhut, I had the chance to visit the beautiful grounds at the Chiang Kai-shek memorial hall. I learned so much about the man who was a political and military leader who served as the leader of the Republic of China between 1928 and 1975, first in mainland China until 1949 and then in exile in Taiwan. Chiang Kai-shek is the third-longest-ruling non-royal national leader since 1900 by term length (48 years, 46 days). 📷 @michaelpihach #taiwan #memorial #chiangkaishek #ruler #formerpresident #travelblogger #travelpics #chinese #chinessculture #tourism #foodblogger #culture #presstrip #luxury  #luxurytravel #luxurylife #waunderlust #travelinstyle #travelblogger #travelpics  #thefoodteasetravel #tripofalifetime #roc #republicofchina #chinesehistory
  • What better way to view the Lantau Island on the way to see the majestic Big Buddha then by taking Asia's longest bi-cable ropeway. The bi-cable gives a 360 degree view of Lantau Island and provides the perfect sights that Hong Kong has to offer😍😍 #instatravel #nofearofheights

  • All throughout the exterior of the Po Lin Monastery, visitors can admire and be in awe of the highly detailed carvings that adorn the monastery. Insanely beautiful 😍 One can easily spend hours admiring and taking in the devout craft showcasing Buddhist iconography.  #zen #monastery #monks #prayer #hongkong #art #presstrip #luxury #luxurytravel #luxurylife #waunderlust #travelblogger #travelpics  #thefoodteasetravel #travelinstyle #lovemyjob #epic #instatravel #bucketlist #pictureperfect #instatravel #budda #thefoodteasetravels #polinmonastery #monklife

  • I was fortunate to visit the Po Lin Monastery, one of Hong Kong’s most important Buddhist sanctums which has been dubbed ‘the Buddhist World in the South’. Home to many a devout monk, this monastery is rich with colourful manifestations of Buddhist iconography. #monastery #tiantan #zen #hongkong #presstrip #luxury #luxurytravel #luxurylife #waunderlust #travelblogger #travelpics  #thefoodteasetravel #travelinstyle #lovemyjob #epic #bucketlist #pictureperfect #instatravel #budda #bucketlist #pray #thefoodteasetravels
