When we venture into abandoned places we normally have to do battle with various elements: blood thirsty mosquitoes, overgrown flora and a lot of broken glass.

Little did we know a different kind of shooting was going on inside. Taiwanese clad in full camo gear and masks and armed with massive rifles were silently sneaking about the place. We had entered a war zone. Luckily the guns held only plastic pellets and the group was generous enough to let us share the space.
