In a recent video, Polish photographer Amedee and Canadian YouTuber Wes Davies sit down to talk about what they love about Taiwan that most people do not notice.
“Taiwan is this really exciting mixture of old culture and old traditions mixed with this upcoming new technology advanced nation,” Davies said in the video.
“It is a very traditional place like people keep their tradition for thousands of years. At the same time, it’s a business place,” Amedee notices. He pointed out that in “Toy Story,” there’s a toy with the tag “Made in Taiwan.”
Furthermore, both noted that they really like how Taiwanese people always give it their all whenever they do something. They were also very complimentary about the local fruit, the close proximity to other countries, as well as the diverse culture.
Taiwan’s response to COVID-19 was another factor that both YouTubers praised.
Amedee explains that when he went to the traditional market, he saw that not everyone was wearing helmets. However, he noticed that everyone was taking COVID seriously by wearing a mask. “I think we’re just gonna see the cases start to tick down,” Davies added.
The YouTube community was very complimentary about the video and the comment section was filled with positive comments thanking the YouTubers and wishing them the best.
“Thank you for being so positive about Taiwan. It’s really important for country to be seen in a positive light by the rest of the world,” someone commented.
“Hopefully, the epidemic will disappear, and life will go back to normal. Hope everyone is safe!” another added.
