To be a Taiwanese local you'd have to wear a gold chain on your neck, chew betel nuts, and speak a good Taiwanese dialect, and we can get a good glimpse of that together! Hi, This is Ben, and I am a native here in Taipei city, and lived here for 16.5 years in total. So I know my way around no matter if you are looking for good food to eat, and good understanding of history through museums, or just want to enjoy the outdoors, I can be your local host! I am friendly, outgoing, and we can talk quite a lot of daily life in Taipei as a Taiwanese. Look forward in seeing you~

I moved to Tokyo because of my love for Japanese Culture...I am a European who has lived in here for 20 years. I am “your Local” in this very exciting great city. Happy to make your vacation the most interesting and creative one, since I am also a promoter of the “Intercultural” lifestyle. So, I am happy to explain to you many aspects and tradition of the old and modern Japanese lifestyle. Happy to show you also the Tokyo`s coolest neighbourhoods (near the sea and the mountain) that not many tourists know about
