Taiwan - Travel Information
Discover the beauty of Taiwan… Enjoy its majestic peaks, national parks and scenic areas, coastlines, and many other wonders. Experience the friendliness of local people and the delicious Taiwanese food. Stand at the edge of Sun Moon Lake, located in the middle of Taiwan, traipse through the East Rift Valley and get a glimpse of Taiwanese rural life in Kenting National Park. Taiwan is a journey of natural discovery.
Temples and shrines, art treasures, shopping, peaceful lakes, spectacular scenery, hiking, beaches, food, deep-sea fishing, gardens and scuba diving and snorkeling are just some of the attractions of Taiwan.
Over the centuries, everyone from fortune hunters and farmers to persecuted minorities and exiled members of the royal court has found a haven there. Today Taiwan is a modern industrialized megalopolis clinging to the fringes of an ancient culture, a string of teeming cities at the feet of a glorious mountain range. If you step outside Taipei you'll discover why Taiwan is known as Ilha Formosa, 'the beautiful island'. Mountain peaks puncture a sea of clouds, slick black volcanic rock wraps the coastlines and waterfalls shroud themselves in mist:
Not too long ago, the valley of the Tamsui River was home to rice and vegetable farmers. Today it's the site of Taipei, the bustling centre of Taiwan's commerce, government and culture. As far as most people are concerned, Taipei is the heart of Taiwan and the place where things happen. Wandering around Taipei, while sometimes taxing, is always rewarding. It's worthwhile spending at least your first day there exploring on foot. You will discover plenty of colourful temples, inspiring monuments to heroes and fascinating museums.
