I'm probably the craziest and most energetic of the team! I love life and I see losses and sad times as a chance to grow and explode!! I've had the privilege of working with Taipei Trends since April 2013. Before I came to Taiwan I thought I'd be in the country for 2-3 years, but after having lived here and experiencing so many fruitful times in Taiwan, I've made it a goal to help others fall in love with Taiwan just as I have. Hang out with me and you'll laugh, be entertained. I'm an all-around social butterfly. You can find me doing anything from checking out new restaurants, to playing in an American flag football league, and enjoying all the nature Taiwan has to offer!

By Lewis Clark | Published 2016/04/14

I’ve been in Taiwan for over 3 years now and I’d like to think that I know my way around the city; places to go, restaurants to dine at, activities to do. But it wasn’t until a few weeks ago that one of my great friends, Roxanne, from Yelp Taipei, approached me about finding fresher […]

By Lewis Clark | Published 2016/04/04

This year we at Taipei Trends have been quite busy! First, we decided to dance around Taiwan to show Taiwan’s beauty to the rest of the world, which we filmed during Chinese New Year. And THEN we said to ourselves, “Why not participate in International Pillow Fight Day?”

By Lewis Clark | Published 2016/03/01

House rentals take a bit more work to find in Taiwan, particularly during Chinese New Year. Luckily, my friends and I were able to find the Green Light House after some extensive Internet scouring.

By Lewis Clark | Published 2016/03/01

Chris, Sylvie and I were traveling all day in Yilan, and were looking forward to quiet rest out in one of the area’s many amazing B&B’s. Where we ended up was a bed and breakfast called Cinderella’s Castle… “Oh great! With a name like that, this is going to be a frou frou, princess-esq BnB!” […]

Taitung Z Hotel
By Lewis Clark | Published 2016/03/01

The Z Hotel, located in the heart of Taitung City, on the surface is a pretty typical business hotel. The design is modern and I thought it looked very nice, with a great atmosphere and style. There is a lobby, the rooms, and a dining area on the top floor….you know: the basics. But it […]

Stay Nice Home — Tainan
By Lewis Clark | Published 2016/03/01

A friend of mine posted about the gentrification of Taipei, in that people refurbish old buildings by turning them into cafes. And when I discussed this idea with Chris, he said that he liked how the southern part of Taiwan gentrified old buildings and areas in that the owners of the buildings maintained them, rather […]

The era of technology is gaining a hold of our lives every day. While we still have yet to see hover boards or flying cars, we are already very capable of turning our living spaces into super convenient, awesomely modern, fully-automated abodes. So why haven’t we?? But this hotel…OMG this hotel is so cool.

Put Up or Shut Up: Let’s Learn Some Chinese!
By Lewis Clark | Published 2016/01/04

So you’ve been proclaiming that you are going to study Chinese for a while now. How long has it been? One month? One year? One decade? It’s no easy task to learn a language of tones and characters, and you know that, which is probably why you’ve been putting it off. But one day you’ll […]

Level Up Experiences: VIBE Review
By Lewis Clark | Published 2015/10/07

  I’ve always been a fan of meeting new people. I think it’s because it’s NEW! New stories, new dialogue, new opinions, new tastes that are trending in culture. The rush I get from meeting new people is similar to the rush travel junkies have. I crave it. I swear by it. Why Do I […]

DAVA Fitness: Be Better than Yesterday
By Lewis Clark | Published 2015/08/17

Fitness in Taipei is becoming more popular as people become educated on the benefits of being fit. And by fit, I mean healthy, not necessarily looking like the Hulk. At DAVA Fitness there are many different methods for getting in shape and staying that way! The newly-opened gym in the Neihu District offers individual/group/family classes […]

Little London: Revisited
By Lewis Clark | Published 2015/07/28

When I want a good beer and some face-time with friends… Little London serves up the perfect experience! Coming to Taipei three years ago, I thought I was sacrificing my beloved beer and hangouts with just the right atmosphere to chill with friends, good conversation included! It wasn’t until 6 months into my stay in […]
