[Core Value] What is "Travel in Real Taiwan"?

Topology Travel was founded by travel lovers who are young at heart, and share a common vision: authentic experience by exploring Taiwan through the eyes of locals. While we have all grown up in Taiwan and understand the culture as native Taiwanese, our passion, our goal, is presenting a first hand experience of authentic Taiwan to every single person who we meet. We aim to create unique travel experiences for people based on their style, their interests, and their preferred pace of travel.

“He treats every guest as a friend. That’s what tourism business means to him.” By he, it refers to Peter Lin, our 30-year-old founder of Topology Travel.  The comment is given by30》, a visionary Taiwanese magazine publisher aiming to offer young generation new perspectives and innovative insights.

On Topology’s webpage, Peter has a few words as his self-introduction. “A journey is not about the sights I see, but about the insights of my experiences and the people I meet. These are what make a journey unique and unforgettable. I want to remember my life, by the connections I have made with friends, worldwide.”

That’s probably a philosophy that he wants to share with us and all our guests who take private journeys, small group tours or expedition voyages in Taiwan. However, there definitely are "happy problems" hidden behind those big bright smiles. As a travel consultant and a tour guide, how does it work to meet all our friends' expectation?


Offering authentic experiences
 by exploring Taiwan through 
the eyes of locals

While we have all grown up in Taiwan and understand the culture as native Taiwanese, our passion, our goal, is presenting a first hand experience of authentic Taiwan to every single person who we meet. We aim to create unique travel experiences for people based on their style, their interests, and their preferred pace of travel.


We always ask ourselves "what is uniqueness mean to us, and the most importantly, to our guests."


Offering 100% guests-centered 
tours and thoughtful tour guides

While it's a relaxing family trip, a vacation, or even a long weekend stay that our guests mostly come to Taiwan for, they deserve totally comfortable and flexible time and space

And you can feel safe and secure knowing that a personal travel consultant is overseeing your trip with a keen attention to detail. From the time that you reach out to us to begin designing your tour to the moment you depart from Taipei Taoyuan International Airport (TPE), one of our travel experts will be guiding you every step of the way, communicating with you to ensure that you have the most outstanding experience of Taiwan imaginable.



We try our best 
to actively facilitate
 a learning environment 


We might come from a totally different nation on earth. We might speak different languages. There might be a gap of age, gender, color, religion. We might be educated and cultivated by different cultures. However we hope to shorten the geological distance and build up a learning environment out of mutual trust with all travelers. Our biggest sense of satisfaction comes when we see genuine interaction and friendships formed between our guests and the communities of people we introduce them to.




When the moment
 our guests
 feel touched...


"My greatest joy is when I'm sharing the best of Taiwan with people I meet, I get their smile in return." Said Daniel, one of our full-time tour guides. For us, what we think a successful trip is - there should be a connection that clicks on our guests anytime during their trip. 

But the connection doesn't come out of nowhere. As we receive the very first e-mail from our guests, we hope to understand what they need, what they prefer, or just generally how they're like through a close trip designing discussion ,or through guests' background research we do about their culture, personal occupation, family formation and deeper issues alike. 

To reach this level, an item, a person, an event, or a place, all can be such connection we're trying to present for our guests. It's not easy to find such "thing" and depends on how lucky we are indeed. However we make it as our major task. Because once we find the connection, it will leave an impression for our guests and will last a lifetime. And that's also when we are fully motivated and get a sense of achievement. 

We're very much grateful for our guests leaving positive reviews on TripAdvisor.
