June has arrived! You know what that means? It’s finally time to pack away the last of your warm woolens and break out the summer gear. I’m sure I’m not the only one excited to finally get some continual sun and chilled times by the pool. Yes, it’s going to get very, very hot (if it’s your first time here, you’ve been warned…), but there’s lots of awesome events this month to keep you distracted!
As usual, I’ve picked 5 events to feature in my monthly events round up for Travelog. Read the article, Taipei this June, as it’ll outline a lot more info about these events.
In addition to the 5 featured events, I’ve also included 10 more unique events to check out this June below.
