Like It Formosa
Like It Formosa is a walking tour company founded in 2015. We are dedicated to promoting what we call “cultural tourism.” Our mission is to help tourists on any budget to explore Taiwan to the fullest. By taking foreign guests on our walking tours and casual hangouts, we present the diversity and wonder of Taiwanese culture in the most informative and entertaining way.
Like It Formosa offers:
- 3 free walking tours: tip-based downtown tours led by our young local in-the-know tour guides, popular attractions and hidden corners included, quality and entertainment guaranteed;
- 1 theme tour: this tour provides a more focused introduction of Taiwanese culture, showing you the most interesting bits of Taipei;
- city map (Taipei Edition): our Taipei Map includes everything you need to know traveling in Taipei. It guides you to multiple spots recommended by locals and provides practical tips you otherwise wouldn’t know
We are looking to initiate more theme tours/events and to expand beyond Taipei. Additional funding is needed to develop these ideas beyond concept stage.
