We've all heard the old adage that travel is about the journey, not the destination.

Now, a travel company in Taipei, Taiwan, is taking the concept so literally that it's not even bothering to list the destinations on its newest city tour.


That's because not even the company knows where its customers will be heading once they've booked a tour.


The company is called Topology and its unique, experiential tour is called the Taxi Diary.


Customers pay NTD1,000 ($33) for the privilege of doing a ride-along in a local taxi for a four-hour stint.


The tourists travel wherever the taxi is called upon to go by its normal customers.


"This idea came to me a long time ago when I was a passenger in a taxi," says Peter Lin, Topology co-founder. "That driver was so talkative that we chatted nonstop during the half-hour drive. He told me where to find great food in town."

拓扑的合伙人Peter Lin称这个主意来源于自己做乘客的经历,有一次自己坐出租车司机非常健谈,在一个半小时令人一直在讲话。司机告诉他哪里的东西最好吃。

"Ever since, I've thought letting taxi drivers and local commuters be city guides might be a good idea."
