Geocache Description:

This is the first Travel Bug Trader in Taiwan.

I found this kind of cache in USA, that's really special, so I'm going to try this in Taiwan too. I hope this one works out here.
This cache is mainly for "Trading Travel Bugs". It started out with 4 travel bugs. If there are more than 3 bugs, you may take one without leaving one. If there are 3 or less, please don't take any bugs, except you leave a bug. You can always leave a bug without taking a bug.

Please don't leave the same Travel Bugs that had log here before as possible as you can. I'll try to list all TB's that had been here.
