Situated off the east coast of China, Taiwan came of age in 1949 when, as the Republic of China, it separated from Mainland China. It is a country with many natural attributes with a steep mountain chain running from north to south, lush forests, lakes and an abundance of natural beauty.

Taipei, the capital, is a vibrant centre of culture and entertainment. There is no doubt the major attraction is the National Palace Museum with its treasure chest of ancient Chinese artifacts brought mainly from Mainland China by Chiang Kai-Shek when he fled from there to set up in Taiwan.

Other points of interest are Taipei 101, a towering building with an observation platform looking down on the city and offering panoramic views, the Martyr’s Shrine resting on the slopes of nearby Qing Mountain and the impressive Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall.

Kaohsiung is a city with a large harbour. Nearby is the sizeable Cheng Ching Lake with its many islands, pagodas and tree-lined walking paths. Nearby Kaohsiung Mountain provides trails inhabited by monkeys. The city of Taichung’s attractions include a world class Natural Science Museum and some wonderful night markets. Keelung is a city offering much historical interest with its many fortresses. It also has excellent night markets.

For nature lovers, it is necessary to visit Taroko National Park near Hualien which contains the scenic Taroko Gorge with its sheer cliffs, walking trails, waterfalls and pagodas; and also, Sun-Moon Lake, the largest natural lake in Taiwan half shaped like the sun and half shaped like the crescent of the moon; plus Kenting National Park. A huge tropical botanical garden with amazing flora and fauna - it is known as a recreational area and is located on the coast with good beaches.
