The Eat Your World team dreams of one day feasting in the streets and night markets of Taipei (and adding to our already awesome Taiwan users’ page!). But before we get there, we’re giving away a free night at a popular downtown Taipei hostel to a few lucky travelers—and a cash prize to one—and all you have to do is upload a photo or story about local food to EYW to get started.
HOW TO ENTER:
1. Sign up as a user to Eat Your World and upload your photo or story about local food (from any country) to our database.
2. Invite your friends to LIKE your entry via the Facebook LIKE button on the page.
3. The three users who collect the most LIKES win a free night in Taipei at Bigfoot Hostel. One grand prize winner will also receive NTD 1,000/US$35! (May we suggest you spend it on food?)
ABOUT BIGFOOT HOSTEL:
Fun, comfortable, and conveniently located in the very center of Taipei, backpacker-friendly Bigfoot Hostel is an ideal place to base oneself in the city, close to the presidential palace, National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, and Longshan Temple, and just two blocks away from Ximen MRT station. Visitors can choose from colorful bunk or private rooms; free Wi-fi, cozy public spaces, and an English-speaking staff are among the amenities on offer.
Special thanks to Bigfoot Hostel.
