Taiwan’s best blogs in 2011

Taiwanderful recently announced the 2011 Taiwan Best Blog Awards. To enter your blog you need to make sure you are registered at Taiwanderful before 10 December. Voting will take place from 10-30 December. I am no longer directly involved in running the awards but this blog will not be entered in the awards even though it is registered at Taiwanderful.

In previous years I have used the blog awards as a time to post links to some of my favourite Taiwan blogs. Even though I’m no longer in Taiwan I still read a number of Taiwan blogs and find them a great way of keeping in touch with what’s happening in Formosa. A list of some blogs I like in several categories follows.


With the presidential and legislative elections taking place next month these blogs are packed with great analysis.


Personal and travel

Language, Tech and other
Apologies if your blog is not included. Please feel free to add a link to your blog or any of your favourite Taiwan blogs in the comments.
