On May 4 (Saturday), YouTubers from different countries assembled teams to experience dragon boat racing. After arriving in Taiwan 18 months ago, renowned French YouTuber "Ku's dream" found his passion for Taiwanese gourmet delicacies and various experiential activities.

This time around, he led kiki from Osaka and YouTubers from around the world to experience Asian culture in Taiwan. In particular, he invited former national athlete Wu Shih-liang, also a member of the world dragon boat racing champion outfit, to root for his team. By understanding the culture of dragon boat racing, and by practicing and competing in the event, the winners will be distinguished from the losers.
