Lanyu Island was undoubtedly one of the most amazing places I’ve ever been in Taiwan. Where most invading countries would have taken it for its resources alone, it was never captured by the Japanese during their invasion of World War II because they didn’t see it as a threat. They saw the tribes that lived here as more of a fascination. Today, of Course, the tribes have been overrun by Chinese citizens who’ve been given incentives to move there after China claimed it as their territory along with Taiwan. But the way life was back then will likely always remain a mystery.
