Hi, I’m Kathy Cheng, a travel and lifestyle writer currently based in Taipei. I started this blog to introduce Taiwanese design, food, lifestyle and travel stories to a global, English-reading audience. Outside of Taiwan, Tricky Taipei reaches readers in the United States, Singapore, Philippines, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Canada, Australia and Japan.

I’m also the founder of Thankful Registry, an open-platform online gift registry that launched in 2013. It’s been covered by TechCrunch, Fast Company, Dwell, Lucky, New York Magazine (Weddings Issue) and The Billfold.

In my previous career, I was a copywriter and content strategist. I worked at Smart Design in NYC and VSA Partners in Chicago. My clients included brands both big and small. You’re welcome to poke around my out-of-date professional website: kathywcheng.com.

From time to time, I’m invited to write reviews and articles about hotels or restaurants in exchange for complimentary stays or meals. Whenever this is the case, I make a mention of this at the bottom of the post. In regards to images on Tricky Taipei, all photos are taken by me unless a photo credit says otherwise.

    You have an audience in Indonesia and in Australia as well.
    Love the straightforwardness.
    I live in Taipei since 2012 with my wife and three kids and have a lot of “tricky” bugging topics.
