In Taiwan,  forest bathing” means simply spending time relaxing among trees.  Breathing in the forest air feels like breathing in new life.  Wellness surveys and reports have showed that when people spent two hours in a forest setting, their pulse rate, systolic and diastolic blood pressure were significantly lower, indicating physiological benefits that help in reducing stress levels. Being out in nature, surrounded by nothing but greenery and watching the beautiful sunrise of Alishan, has had a way of making people feel at peace. The clean crisp air, the fresh green leaves, and the scent of the forest can really help restore our mood and leave us feeling refreshed.
It’s also a natural form of aromatherapy, since many forest plants give off fragrant molecules called terpenes, which have been shown to have health benefits.

NAMASTAY in Taiwan!

Taiwan offers local experiences of Yoga and Wellness Retreats like Origin Yoga and The One Nanyuan. These wellness retreats offers tours of the area, local food experiences prepared in-house as well as signature kombucha. These places provide a calm place surrounded by water and greenery for yoga, meditation, and relaxing experiences for travellers. This pandemic surely taught us that sometimes we need to just take things slow and accept the present moment.  This world is a beautiful place and Taiwan boasts variety of nature for visitors from all around the globe.

Taiwan, known for handling the COVID virus efficiently is applauded for its efforts bringing the interest of travellers to know more about the destination to travel once the borders are opened as people adapt to the new normal way of life. Cases in Taiwan maybe increasing recently, however being the front runners in managing this virus, they are managing it well as the situation is still under control following all protocols. Hopefully, life in Taiwan will be back to normal soon to welcome tourists to this beautiful country in North East Asia.
