Snapshot Sunday: Rush Hour on Taipei Bridge

Rush hour
Rush hour on Taipei Bridge - Taipei, Taiwan

With 415 scooters for every 1,000 people in Taipei, two wheelers dominate rush hour.

    That is a crazy number of scooters. Did you guys dare ride one? I think I’ve learned my lesson from when I was in Bali

      We didn’t ride one in Taipei, but when we were in Green Island as that was literally the only form of transportation.
