Hsinchu and Hakka County

Hsinchu and the Hakka Heartland

One of Taiwan’s most prosperous cities, Hsinchu is a beacon of modernity which backs onto a region dominated by the country’s Hakka minority. Life in the hills was tough, but the clans who settled there can now enjoy the area’s enthralling natural beauty. More >>

Taichung

Taichung

There are two Taichungs. One is the bang up-to-date metropolis with excellent museums and eating options; the other is a traditional and mostly rural hinterland. In the latter you’ll find landmark shrines and some of Taiwan’s most alluring mountain vistas. More >>

Lugang

Lugang

Lugang has had its day, and that’s why we love it so much. The wealth generated here in the 18th and 19th centuries, when the town was a busy harbour, lingers in hidden mansions and fabulously ornate temples. Nowhere is better for a walking tour! More >>

Mount Jade and Snow Mountain

Mount Jade and Snow Mountain

Northeast Asia’s highest mountains are found among the 250-plus peaks in Taiwan which top 3,000 m (9,843 feet). At 3,952 m, Mount Jade draws hikers from all over, but the very slightly lower Snow Mountain provides an equally breathtaking experience. More >>

Pingtung County

Pingtung County

Far from Taipei in terms both of distance and ambiance, Pingtung packs great variety between its gorgeous beaches and stunning mountains. In an hour, it’s possible to drive from a Hoklo town through a Hakka village and into an indigenous community. More >>

Penghu County

Penghu County

An unspoiled archipelago just 40 minutes’ flight time from Taiwan’s big cities, Penghu is superb for watersports fans, geology enthusiasts, history buffs… and anyone who loves to relax by the ocean. Come for two days, and you’ll likely want to retire here. More >>

Kinmen and Matsu

Kinmen and Matsu

On the frontline with China, these characterful island groups were shelled and fought over as recently as the 1970s. Now the two sides peacefully co-exist, they’ve become stepping stones to the mainland as well as attractions in their own right. More >>

Green Island and Orchid Island

Green Island and Orchid Island

Once a place where dissidents were exiled, holidaymakers nowadays can’t get to Green Island fast enough. Orchid Island is even more remote, and thanks to its unique ecology and vibrant indigenous culture, utterly different to the rest of the country. More >>
