Ghost Island 鬼島

Taiwan 台灣 is sometimes referred to as Guǐ Dǎo 鬼島, literally “ghost island”, for an extraordinary numbers of reasons depending on the context. I have adopted this term as a unifying concept for my explorations of Taiwanese history, declining industries, abandoned places, temple culture, urban decay, and the otherworldly environments that can be found here on Ilha Formosa.
