About This Trip

With its unique fusion of cultures, breath-taking scenery, varied cuisine, diverse and exciting city life and exceptional hospitality industry, Taiwan is an ideal destination for all different types of travellers, looking for a diverse range of sights, scenery and activities. The food is outstanding, a culinary explosion of Chinese, Japanese and Taiwanese dishes brought together to set your taste buds tingling with mouth-watering treats.

 

On your Taiwan exploration, you will visit both current and old capital cities: Taipei and Tainan. Both are filled with must-see sights and adventures such as a trip up the Taipei 101, the National Palace Museum and a visit to some of the island’s best restaurants, bars and night markets. Your trip is fully inclusive meaning you can travel all around Taiwan with total peace of mind as all tours, transfers, accommodation and food are included.

 

It is not just the cityscapes either, with towering majestic sea cliffs, marble-walled gorges and lush green tropical forests are just a part of your journey, you will criss-cross mountains, cycle around the pristine lakes and take the lone highway with deep blue Pacific on one side and unbelievably beautiful volcanic arcs on the other.
