With Spring in Taiwan showing the first signs of coming, flowers are beginning to bloom, especially the Sakura. That means hill climbing season is coming. Truthfully, hill walking time never seems to go away in Taiwan, but if you do decide to go hiking in the hills and foottrails of Taipei County, you will definitely need good footwear, perhaps shoes from mbt or Nike or one of the tougher more durable brands before you take to the hills.
Other things you can pack in your bag include: a decent water bottle, some anti-mosquito repellant, sunscreen, sunglasses, a light jacket (for sun and rain), a decent hat, a soothing cream for bites/stings, a small towel.
