Taste of Taiwan

Duration
7 Days
Prices From:
US$ 2,830

The island nation of Taiwan is filled with natural beauty, impressive scenery, a vibrant culture… and also delicious cuisine. This travel idea shows off Taiwan's emerging culinary side, along with the main attractions of Taipei, Sun Moon Lake and Kaohsiung city.


We feel that one of the best ways to discover a country is through its food. Taiwan’s diverse cuisine has influences from Mainland China, such as Sichuan, Canton and Fujian provinces, as well as Japan and Mongolia. 

On this itinerary you will travel with a private guide and come back with great memories, unique tasting experiences, and a full belly! Discover local specialties like delicious stewed beef noodles, Oyster omelets topped with sweet red sauce, tropical citrus fruits and sweet stuffed pastries.

Highlights include learning how to make clay pot chicken at a cooking class, seeing Taipei’s National Palace Museum which houses more than 620,000 art objects, sampling unique food at Taipei’s Wuzhou Hwashi Night Market, riding on a high speed bullet train, and travelling to Sun Moon Lake, the largest body of water in Taiwan.
