Taiwan Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 46%, Taiwan represents to many what can be achieved by "sticking up for yourself". Today, this small country is widely recognized as an independent state by much of the global community, even though this claim is disputed by its giant neighbor to the west. But regardless of this, Taiwan offers itself as a top-notch travel destination that blends thousands of years of history, modern marvels, and a stunning landscape that is easy to navigate in a relatively short visit. Most trips to Taiwan tend to start in the capital city of Taipei, which is the perfect place to immerse yourself in the country's shrines to rapid progress – Taipei 101, the Ximending Shopping District, the Misukoshi Complex, the Night Market – and its shrines to culture – the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, The National Palace Museum, Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Longhsan Temple. After being bedazzled by the capital, continue your explorations around the countryside, visiting Beitou Hot Springs, Sun Moon Lake, the Green Rocks of Lao Mei, and the many distinguished parks– Shei-Pa National Park, Yangmingshan National Park, Yushan National Park – where you'll see spectacular landscapes that will provide ample opportunities for hiking, camping, and even enjoying the occasional secluded beach. Taiwan represents all the best from the region, presented in a nice, neat little package.
