The capital Taipei is the natural starting point. Spend a couple of days exploring the city’s sites such as the Chiang Kai Shek Mausoleum, Taiwan History Museum and the charming Old Town. Taipei 101 was the tallest building in the world from 2004-2010, and shooting to its 89th floor viewing podium in 37 seconds will delight kids and adults. No visit to Taipei is complete without visiting night markets that include quintessential Taiwanese snacks such as oyster pancakes, Taiwanese fried chicken, stinky tofu and black pepper buns.
Moving south to the interior and east coast of the island, Hualien and Sun Moon Lake are areas of natural beauty. Hualien is home to the renowned Taroko Gorge with crisscrossing trails that are suitable for hikers of every level. Sun Moon Lake is a great place to spend a few days boating and cycling.
Crossing to the southern west coast, Tainan is perfect for a walking tour to discover the city’s old buildings and architecture. It presents the history of Taiwan before the industrial age with architecture representing Chaozhou/Fujian design.
Down on the southern tip of Taiwan lies Kenting, a beach resort that is still quite underdeveloped. Enjoy the surrounding national parks that are ideal for day treks, and snorkel and dive off the coast.
Whether you’d like to visit a few main spots or traverse the entire island, Lightfoot Travel can create a luxury itinerary to Taiwan based on your individual preferences.Read more...
