Hi, I’m Kathy Cheng, a writer and creative consultant based in Taipei.

Tricky Taipei started as an English-language design and culture blog in 2014. Since then, it’s evolved into a cultural amplifier for Taipei and Taiwan, and grown into a vibrant online community on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

In June 2018, I launched Tricky Talks, an English-language event series that gathers international and local professionals for a relaxed evening of drinks and conversation.

My picture book, Hey Taipei, was published in April 2019. This is the story behind the book and here’s where you can pick up a copy.

From time to time, I take on consulting projects. If you’d like to work together please get in touch. Here’s my professional website: kathywcheng.com.

Press & Media

Discussions started on Tricky Taipei have made it to local media via Apple Daily, SETN, The News Lens, TVBSCentral News AgencyTaipei Times, CommonWealth Crossings, ETToday, LTN and TTV. I’ve also been quoted in National Geographic, Airbnb Magazine and Taiwan Business TOPICS.

Editorial Partnerships

At times I partner with brands on content for the blog and social media. Whenever this is the case, I make this relationship clear within the post.

In the past, Tricky Taipei has collaborated with Hong Kong Disneyland Resorts, Tourism Indonesia, Aloft Beitou, amba Songshan Hotel, Silks Place TainanMarriott Taipei, Grand Hyatt TaipeiAndaz Tokyo and Rosewood Beijing.

    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.
