City of Azaleas

Situated in a basin between two mountain ranges, Taipei appeals to tourists with its blend of Asian cultures, living side by side amidst Japanese-era mansions and Taoist temples.

Heart of Asia
A sliver of land just off China's east coastline, Taiwan represents one of the world's most densely populated countries--and one of Asia's most powerful economies. History buffs on a tour of Taiwan will discover ancient artifacts stored at outstanding national museums narrating nearly 10,000 years of Asia's history. Those interested in more active pursuits can organize a Taiwan itinerary around its modern mountain resorts, well-developed beaches, and protected forests sheltering hundreds of species of native plant and animal life. Begin your visit in Taipei, a vibrant capital city with a thriving entertainment scene, relatively inexpensive accommodations, and an eclectic culinary scene.
