On our Podcast Show this week, we’ll be taking you on a virtual journey of the real tech capital of the world. Taiwan is home to every major computer component maker, and in many ways, it is also where many tech innovations we love are developed, designed, and manufactured. And, of course, 90% of the world’s most advanced chips come from here. But it doesn’t always get the credit it is due.

Taiwan isn’t just a tech paradise. It’s packed with culture and creativity. It is known for inventing Bubble tea, and its world-class Beef Noodles are to die for. If you’re a tech head, the computer, camera, and night markets and heaven for geeks.

Winston and Stephen call it one of their favourite places in the world, and we wanted to share with you why we love this place so much.
