One of the greatest hidden gems of Taiwan is its scenic railroad routes that lets visitors get a glimpse of the natural beauty of the island.
近期，在台北工作的Geoffery Chang 決定與他人分享這一塊小小天地，於社群媒體上貼出一張他在深山處拍攝的照片，照片中，只見一列火車正在進站中。
Geoffery Chang, a Taiwanese living and working in Taipei, recently decided to share this small part of paradise with social media users and posted a photo he took deep within the mountains, which showed a train approaching the station.
The picture was very well-received by members of the foreign community, with many equating the beautiful image to a still from a Studio Ghibli film.
One social media user loved it so much that he commented, “So gorgeous! Put me in quarantine for two weeks-I don’t care.”
“I just want to come back to this beautiful country and eat the glorious food,” he continued.
與The China Post訪談中，Geoffery透露照片是在平溪線上的某一站拍攝的，雖然他記不得，不過猜想是嶺腳站。
When asked by The China Post, Chang revealed that the photo was actually taken at a train station on the Pingxi Line, and though he couldn’t remember, he believes it was the Lingjiao station (嶺腳).
Chang added that while he was trying to get the perfect shot, an old man sitting at the train station suddenly piped up to alert him a train was about to approach the station and urged him to take a shot the second it entered.
The old man’s friendly suggestion reminded Chang exactly why he loved Taiwan so much and recalled just why he missed it so much when working abroad.
To him, the warm and cheerful locals who casually strike up a conversation with you without asking anything in return is “what makes traveling in Taiwan so pleasant and relaxing.”
Chang later revealed that he just wanted to “capture the sunlight” and the “sense of tranquility” at the specific moment and was pleasantly surprised to find others loving it as much as him.
