Taiwan has never been a popular tourist destination for Westerners, perhaps owing to its political uncertainty and lack of worldwide influence. Nonetheless, visitors from Japan and Hong Kong have been flocking to Taiwan for a long time, and a growing number of mainland Chinese are joining them. Many cultural sites may be found on the island, including a good variety right in the capital. Taipei is a vibrant and contemporary city with old but busy streets and world-famous monuments such as Taipai 101. The National Palace Museum, Zhongshan Hall, Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, and the magnificently renovated Bao’an Temple are all located here. Bao’an is simply one of many impressive temple complexes worth seeing. Try the Zushi Temple in Sanxia or the Mazu Temple in Makung for more. The enormous Longshan Temple in Lukang, as well as the Confucian Temples in Changhua and Tainan, are other excellent options. Tainan is also known for its Ten Drum Cultural Village and treehouses. If you want to learn more about Taiwan’s history and culture, there are museums to visit almost wherever you travel.
Taiwan continues to be a significant hub of Chinese pop culture. Furthermore, this state is home to busy cities with contemporary, high-tech infrastructure, and excellent transit infrastructure makes it simple to move about. For those who are tired of the rush and bustle of cities, Taiwan’s rural regions feature some extremely stunning landscapes and endearing village heritage.
Some people conceive of Taiwan as a filthy, heavily crowded industrial island full with hard disk manufacturers, and if you just visit the highly populated West Coast, you may get that impression. Those who take the time to visit Taiwan’s less densely populated East Coast, on the other hand, will soon discover that the country is home to some breathtaking scenery. The Taroko Gorge in Hualien is particularly spectacular, and a side drive to the rocky beaches at Shihtiping’ is a noteworthy diversion. Beautiful natural sites around Nantou include Hehuan Mountain and Sun Moon Lake, while the massive and old trees of Lalashan provide for excellent treks near Taoyuan. In reality, since much of Taiwan is covered in mountains with beautiful vistas, hiking possibilities are plentiful.
