TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — A Filipino migrant worker vlogger has created a video documenting his travels to 63 scenic spots across Taiwan over the course of a year.

Marc Peter Uy, 25, hails from the Philippines' Cagayan Valley and has been working and living at an electronics factory run by Elite Material Co., Ltd. in Taoyuan's Zhongli District for three years. Uy, who also enjoys vlogging about travel, told Taiwan News that the video is a compellation of his year-long adventures around Taiwan.

Uy said that being a travel vlogger is fun but not easy job. He pointed out that "When you see a good video, it means they put a lot of hard work on it."

He added that he likes the way vlogging enables him to express himself and is as much of a journey of self-discovery as it is about exploring destinations. "No one can compete with you on being you. Most of life is a search for who and what needs you the most," said Uy.

The five-and-a-half-minute video titled "What If?" asks the question, "What if we had the ability to relive a day in our past, to travel backward in time, to feel that special moment again?" The following are the 63 destinations Uy documented in the film:
