Some of you would make shit celebrities.
They are directing their gaze at me or my children or indulging in their favorite habit of rubbernecking. It's not difficult, granted the odd time the are just daydreaming or looking at something else.
We get stared at 100s of times a day, you just have to deal with it and ignore it as much as possible. It's very obvious to people who just arrive in Taiwan, friends and family all commented.
It's not the worst place in the world for staring by a longshot, most are fairly discreet and many do not do it, but a sizable minority do it all the same. It's not that surprising because there are VERY few westerners in Taiwan, especially outside Taipei.
