The 221-second video by French travel photographer Tolt juxtaposes images with several negative written headings, starting with "Taiwan is just buildings and factories."

That is then followed by "Taiwanese nature is completely lifeless," "Taiwanese temples are quite humdrum," "Taiwan is not a destination for outdoor lovers," "Taiwanese culture is not so diversified," and "Taiwan has no gastronomy."

The images, however, belie the assertions, as they showcase the beauty of Taiwan's forests, clouds in mountains and wild animals, as well as exquisite temple sculptures and tempting foods.
