Sound Taiwan
I want to share with you some sites I’ve found related to sound in Taiwan. An interesting one is “Sound and Taiwan” run by Wu, Tsan – Cheng (吳 燦 政). There is Sound Map with a collection of nearly 2000 recordings around Taiwan. The Sound Map is integrated with Google Maps, so you can easily pinpoint the exact locations of the recordings.

I encourage you to have a listen to the sounds of Taiwan. There are also other sounds to be heard here for those sound enthusiasts.
