Where flashy glass-fronted skyscrapers overlook ancient temples, Taiwan’s beating heart, Taipei, pulses with the insatiable energy of one of Asia’s most dynamic capital cities. An array of foreign settlers dotted throughout the island’s history have forged an eclectic blend of cultures, with colonial European Dutch influences mingling with traditional Han Chinese and Japanese customs to forge the cultural melting pot that visitors enjoy today.

Since the end of martial law in the 1980’s, Taipei has reinvented itself as a clean, modern hub – and the perfect city in which to begin any Taiwan holiday – but it’s the incredible natural scenery outside of the capital that make Taiwan one of Asia’s most underrated hidden gems. The tiny island is dominated by the towering Central Mountain Range, and stunning natural parks abound; remaining relatively undiscovered by mass tourism, Taiwan is as much a haven for nature lovers as it is for culture vultures.

Taiwan holidays can combine the country’s most iconic must-visits, with time spent straying from the beaten track for the stunning cliffs of Penghu, visits to the rural mountain communities of Wulai to find natural steaming, aquamarine hot springs and explorations of the Wen Wu Temple at Sun Moon Lake.

Taipei
Top Destination
Taipei
Taipei is a modern, bustling city that has managed to escape feeling claustrophobic. The surrounding mountains help keep the air clean and the views from the top of the 101 Tower, once the tallest in the world, are spectacular.
Sun Moon Lake
Top Destination
Sun Moon Lake
A favourite destination for Taiwanese holidaymakers, Sun Moon Lake is the country’s largest lake. A day is well spent cycling around its 33km perimeter taking in the views.
Toroko Gorge
Top Destination
Toroko Gorge
Taroko Gorge National Park is a truly extraordinary sight, with vertiginous mountains creating v-shaped valleys which converge at the Liwu River. Birds and butterflies abound and the Park can be visited year-round.
Alishan National Park
Stefanie Studley's Recommendation
Alishan National Park
Alishan National Park sits at a cooling 2,000m in central Taiwan. The region is famed for its oolong tea plantations as well as its mountain railway which dates back to the early 20th Century.

Stefanie Studley
Taiwan is full of surprises, but those who picture it as a sprawling metropolis are in for the biggest surprise. Taiwan’s National Parks boast some of the most stunningly beautiful lakes, waterfalls and forests in Asia. Japan might be famous for its cherry blossoms, but for a cheaper and less-crowded alternative, Taiwan is also covered with sweet-smelling cherry blossoms in the springtime.

Stefanie's Tips
1
No trip to Taiwan is complete without a trip to a night market; Shilin, Raohe and Shida are the best-known.
2
Just a few miles off the coast of China, Kinmen Island is the place to go to learn about Taiwan's military history.
3
Escape the modern cities and search through mountainous Yangmingshan National Park for hot springs and waterfalls.
