Taiwan holiday ideas by Cox & Kings

With breathtaking scenery, exotic cultures and hospitable people, Taiwan is a relatively unexplored treasure. Taiwan offers a tremendous diversity for a small island. From cosmopolitan cities to stunning landscapes, Taiwan also has a fascinating history and delicious food due to its many cultural influences.

The attractions of Taiwan stretch from the ultra-modern capital of Taipei to Tainan, the country’s oldest city. The Alishan National Scenic Area is perfect for walking with its tea plantations and beautiful mountain views, while the Sun Moon Lake and beaches of Kenting are idyllic for relaxing shore side.

Taiwan’s natural wonders continue in Taroko National Park, with the spectacular Taroko gorge and mountains towering above 3,000 metres. Meanwhile, Fo Guang Shan or ‘Light of Buddha Mountain’ is the largest Bhuddist monastery in south-east Asia.
