The Grand Canyon is one of the most famous and classic photo spots in the United States. Contrary to all expectations, it seems that the majestic yellow mountains can be seen in Taipei too!
A social media user recently posted a short video to a Facebook group, tagging it with descriptions including “Taipei Grand Canyon”, “secret spot” and “#Instaworthy spots.”
In the first two seconds of the video, a camera drone is seemingly panning over a large area of hills interspersed with green trees, culminating in a stunning view.
In addition, the rocky cliffs on both sides also look very similar to the Grand Canyon in the United States.
As the camera zooms out, however, viewers suddenly realize that the beautiful “natural landscape” is actually the seat of an old motorcycle and the “green trees” are the moldy patches in the yellow sponge seat.
The video immediately received more than 10,000 likes and a thousand shares. Many social media users also fell prey to the optical illusion and commented that they had wondered where the exact location of the secret spot was.
Another also jokingly added that there’s also a “Taipei Grand Canyon” parked in front of their home.
For disappointed social media users who really want to see the Grand Canyon without traveling abroad, we recommend the “Linkou Buffalo Pit” which is located near the Xibin Expressway! With its large rock formation, the secret spot is now widely known as the real “Taiwan Grand Canyon”.
