A U.K. expat has recently released a video sharing his thoughts and experience re-visiting the community in Taichung where he was quarantined upon his arrival in Taiwan.
According to Lewis, he was inspired to make the video after looking out his hotel room window for 14 days, and wanted to know what everything looked like “on ground level.”
與The China Post訪問中，Lewis說他曾經在中國居住，後來因工作原因決定搬來臺灣久居。
In an interview with The China Post, Lewis revealed that he came to Taiwan after living in China for some time, and is now here for work purposes.
Though some may complain about the 14-day mandatory quarantine regulations of the Taiwanese government, Lewis was impressed by the procedure and praised it as being very “efficient and affordable.”
Lewis added that the taxi he took from the airport to Taichung was subsidized by the government, and a SIM card was also acquired for him so that health authorities could check up on him daily.
The quarantine hotel he stayed at was also comfortable, he continued, and the food was decent as well, but after a while it became a little mundane staying in a single room all the time.
It was during this period that Lewis began looking out his window, wondering where people were going and the views of the street.
In his video, after exploring the locations outside his quarantine hotel, Lewis was happy to discover that the long line of people he saw previously was actually waiting for their turn on several claw machines located in a nearby alley.
Overall, Lewis deemed the quarantine period “necessary” and praised Taiwan for containing the spread of the virus.
When asked about the hardest part of being in Taiwan during the pandemic, Lewis revealed that he felt guilty for living a “normal life” in Taiwan, while friends and family may not have the same luxury back home and in other parts of the world.
“I hope that Taiwan can be used as an inspiration for future potential pandemics,” Lewis said.
Lewis added that after being in Taiwan for 8 weeks, he has fallen in love with its culture, countryside and friendly people.
He expressed a desire to visit Kaohsiung in the near future, but is more likely to visit “everywhere in Taiwan” as he feels every place is “incredibly diverse” and “there is always something interesting to see.”
