Taiwan

Taiwan, traditionally dubbed Illa Formosa (“Beautiful Isle”), is an island situated off the southeastern coast of Mainland China. The island offers a unique blend of cultures, history, cuisines and terrains. While the eastern portion of the island offers more mountainous regions, the western lands are more developed and is where most of the population resides.

It may only be one island, but visitors can experience the jaw-dropping scenery and winding rivers in Taroko National Park, then travel westward and experience the bustling and modern metropolis that is Taipei, all in the space of one weekend.

Chinese and Japanese influences abound, especially when it comes to food and language. Yet, Taiwan has managed to create its own identity over time – one of a democratic and liberal Asian society, one that is constantly looking to the future.
