Story Studio

Story Studio was established in 2014, aiming to bridge the widening gap between the academic world and the general reader. In the past two years, the website has approximately 624,339 page views and 220,000 unique visitors per month, and has become a content supplier for several major web media in Taiwan. Currently we are running to new project called "Historical Tour in Taiwan.” The main idea of this project is to invite our professional researchers and local experts to be tour guides, sharing their knowledge to anyone willing to gain profound understanding of the history of city. Our core value of this project includes the sense of sharing, extraordinary experience of travel and the profound understanding of city. We believe that city tour is another kind of lecture, we love to try any way to share knowledge.
