The subtropical island of Taiwan is small, yet even with a population of 23 million, it doesn’t feel crowded. While it may be a small island, you will be amazed and delighted with its hidden gems. With many mountain peaks above 3,000 metres, over a hundred hot springs scattered around the island, golden and black-sand beaches, nine national parks, world-class museums, busy well developed cities, stunning temples, and a huge number of night markets that are second to none, Taiwan has something that everyone can enjoy.
Taiwan’s indigenous tribes, of which there are ten officially recognised by today’s government, are believed to have Polynesian ancestors, not Chinese. Having been ruled by the Dutch, Han Chinese and Japanese, Taiwan’s culture is an interesting mix. Taipei, the modern, efficient capital, has wonderful food and café culture – if you like your dumplings, you’ve come to the right place! But there is so much more to offer in the way of food. Taiwan is known as the “Beautiful Isle”, and outside of Taipei, you’ll discover a beautiful natural landscape comprising of soaring seacliffs, dramatic gorges, lush tropical forests and spectacular mountain ranges.
