The Hidden Gem of the Orient

Overview

As you watch the setting sun paint the ocean golden and witness cruising dolphins, you are left speechless by the sheer beauty of Taiwan’s natural landscapes.

Taiwan is a little speck on the world map but the minute you step into the land, it opens up a vivid world of experiences for you. From lush green national parks that take you on enchanted journeys to colourful night markets that take shopping to another level, Taiwan is undoubtedly breathtaking.

Taiwan’s pristine countryside is dotted with rustic Hakka villages that quietly preserve age-old Taiwanese culture and traditions. On the other hand, glitzy, steel-glass cities are active 24x7 and are flourishing centres of commerce.

With this seamless blend of old and new, ancient and modern, there is no doubt that Taiwan is indeed Ilha Formosa, the beautiful island.
