Synapticism

An experiential journal of synchronicity and connection

Pingtung City 屏東市 is the capital of the eponymous county in the far south of Taiwan 台灣. It is somewhat reminiscent of Changhua City 彰化市 in that it is old and historic and shows few signs of modernization compared to the mega-city just next door (Kaohsiung 高雄 in this case). The Minzu Road Night Market 民族路夜市 is a happening place but apart from that Pingtung City is a fairly quiet place. Even so, there's a good number of historic sights and old temples worth a look for those interested in vintage Taiwan 台灣 style.
