Awesome scenery, dynamic cities, and only the first stirrings of mass tourism make Taiwan one of Asia’s most intriguing destinations. Despite its tiny size, this mountainous island holds much allure. Experience the electrifying capital of Taipei with its skyscrapers and markets, and venture inland and coastward to discover stunning lakes, hot springs, ancient temples, and the Taroko Gorge. If you wish, get even more from your Taiwan trip by teaming it with an exploration of Vietnam, Thailand, or Hong Kong.
