Travel literature not only serves as the record of experiencing spatial movements, but contains a traveler’s perception when being in the natural or cultural environment； the narrative position, furthermore, reflects the author’s field of view. Travel literature in Taiwan has a long-term history dating from the seventeenth century to the present age. Taiwanese travel narrative has a characteristic of prose narration. Selecting from the broad collection of texts and referring to related research results enables one to map the historical development of travel literature. Among the various texts, Taiwan Education Association Magazine had a representing position in the field of Chinese literature for its long publication period in Japanese Colonial Era and its Chinese section appearing from 1903 (Meiji 36 ) to 1927 (Showa 2 ). The research aims to explore the meaning of the travel writings both from Chinese and Japanese background collected by the magazine’s Chinese section and analyze the traveler’s on-the-spot experience and field of view. The authors of these works were mainly students or faculty of Taiwan Govenor-General Chinese School, or people who concerned about education like Lin Cheng-Lu, Wang Min-Chuan and Chang Shu-Tsu and some traditional literati, for example, Wu De-Gung and Nakamura Sakuradani. These travel writings sometimes reveal the author’s sense of regionality or identification, or even the infiltration of colonial power. The connection between these travel writings and culture is also something worthy of researching. The research start from the interpretation of the texts through aspects of Taiwanese image, writings on the Eight Views, educational excursions, experiences of visiting Gon Jing Hui , and expirences of modernity. At the same time, the research expound on themes such as the function of travel writing, its contents, settings, dialogues within prose and poetry, and application of certain form. Also, in order to present the homogeneity and heterogenity between the travel writings recoreded by Taiwan Education Association Magazine and the travel writings composed during Japanese Colonial Era, the research also compare the selected texts with serial publications like Chinese Taiwan Daily News and Taiwan Minbao. The ultimate goal of this research is to contribute to the collection and explanation of historical materials on Taiwanese travel literature.
