Taiwan

Taiwan tailor-made holidays

Introduction

Taiwan is an all-too-often overlooked gem on the fringes of North Asia.

Those who do visit the island are rewarded by a beautiful interior of pristine lakes, jagged mountain ranges, deep gorges, rice paddies, tea plantations and dramatic coastlines.

Contrasting these natural attractions are its 21st-century cities, which are fascinating too; Taipei 101, for a time the world's tallest building, is a good demonstration of Taiwan's upward ambition.
