Saturday I had my first experience with the aboriginals in Taiwan. Winston I believe that these guys might be the non-stuck up Taiwanese you are looking for. I went to a village called Fushan which is in the mountains not that far from Taipei. First guy I spoke to there was very friendly and asked me why I didn't have a girl with me. I then went to do a jungle trek and when I came back I needed to call a taxi to get back to the bigger town of Wulai. The taxi driver who turned up was shirtless, with paint on his face, but also pretty friendly. Several guys asked me to drink beer with them when I was waiting for the taxi and also if I needed any help. The women seemed to be fairly open. I think there are some good looking aboriginal girls - the girl at the ticket desk at the aboriginal museum in Taipei being one. I also saw a young guy topple off a powerful motorbike up in the village - I wonder if he was drunk? Anyway the aboriginals gave me a very different vibe from the people in Taipei (as you'd expect). Maybe a hermitage in the mountains not to far from an aboriginal village would suit both your spiritual and social needs Winston? Happy-Abroaders could make a pilgrimage to see you - once I get a vehicle here I will make a tour of it - introducing them to the flora and fauna on the drive up. Perhaps we can split the profits? You after all would be the main attraction!
I thought their villages were closed off to the public? The only aborigines I see in Taiwan are at those touristy shows that they put on for tourists. Kind of like the ones in Hawaii.
How many aborigine villages are there? Are there any down south? I have a car here and could drive you up to one of them near here, if you can find one.
What did you say when they asked you why you didn't have a girl with you? lol
Rock, Momopi, Falcon, what do you know about this subject? I will PM this thread to you.

I had no idea that some were closed off to the public. There are thousands of aboriginal villages up in the mountains - the more remote, the less touristy they will be. I told the guy I couldn't find a girl in Taipei. I generally don't like taking girls on hikes, but it depends on the girl. I was thinking of asking a couple of foreign guys I know if they wanted to come - but they are too enslaved to the bottle. I'm not sure aboriginal villages are great places to pick up chicks, given that they are tight knit communities, but at least everybody says hi and doesn't need to feel ultra comfortable before chatting.
Per the article, there are over 800 villages.
