From the modern metropolis of Taipei to the ancient mountain hot springs, Taiwan will amaze and astonish

On the mountainous island of Taiwan, Chinese, Western and Japanese influences combine together to create a sensational and rich culture which offers something for foodies, nature lovers, thrill-seekers, shoppers and beach go-ers.

Day 1 and 2

Embark in Kaohsiung.

Kaohsiung is a large port city in southern Taiwan, and along with the towering skyscrapers it has over 20 traditional temples.  Kaohsiung City is a special municipality stretching from the coastal urban centre to the rural Yushan Range and it’s a great place to begin your Taiwanese itinerary.

Visit the famous Yanheng Buddhist temple on the edge of Shoushan National Park or, if you like hiking, head up monkey mountain and meet a few of the local primates.

Another attraction in Kaohsiung is the lotus lake.  This man-made was opened in 1951 and the multicolored Dragon and Tiger pagodas are surrounded by lotus flowers.  Whilst here, one can

reverse bad luck by entering through the dragon’s jaws and exiting through those of the tiger.

Day 6 and 7

Taiwan’s modern capital unites today’s metropolitan way of life with the traditions of old. Here, art, ancient architecture and 21st century living jostle for space side by side.

Taipei’s skyline is accented by the 509m-tall, Taipei 101 skyscraper.  There are high-end stores at the tower’s base and a rapid elevator taking you to an observatory at the top.
Taipei is also known for its lively street-food scene and many night markets.

Whilst in Taipei, we recommend a visit to Jiu Fen Old Street, where you can enjoy a traditional tea in a traditional setting, with a view of both the mountains and the ocean.

On the northeastern coast, Zhongzheng park is another main attraction.  Here is the statue of Guanyin, the Goddess of Mercy, and the largest statue of a goddess in all of southeast Asia.
