Steeped in traditional Chinese culture, with influences from Japan and the island's own indigenous tribes, Taiwan is a destination full of surprises. Beyond the bustling metropolises are lush tropical landscapes, rushing rivers, hot springs and some of northeast Asia's tallest mountains. The island is a compact showcase of natural attractions and cultural jewels, with unexpected marvels around every corner.
However, what's really special about Taiwan is the Taiwanese, who welcome visitors to their island with amazing warmth and hospitality.

TAIPEI Tours, Travel and Activities
Taipei is the provisional capital of the Republic of China, otherwise known as Taiwan. It is located in the northern part of the island in a basin between the Yangming Mountains and the Central Mountains.
The downtown area is culturally divided into East and West. The West side, with its narrow streets and road side vendors, is considered the bastion of old Taipei life, whereas East Taipei, with its classy malls, chic boutiques, and stylish restaurants and cafes, reminiscent of those found in London, Paris or New York, represents the city's metamorphosis into a modern and international city.

Taiwan's varied geography offers an amazing array of environments. In the mountains are crystal-clear lakes, hidden waterfalls and plenty of opportunities for hiking and camping. The rugged east coast, with its towering granite cliffs and windswept beaches, is a must-see for any visitor.
A trip out to the tiny offshore island of Matsu in the Taiwan Strait is a trip back through history, with its preserved fishing villages and beautiful temples.
