The island has another Portuguese name, Formosa, which means 'beautiful island'. In addition, it has many wonderful man-made tourist recourses, such as the famed Matsu Temple.

Located in the subtropical ocean, Taiwan offers visitors comfortable weather and has no winter all the year round. With the pleasant climate, it can sustain vast biology resources. It is a place worth visiting for its natural sights, such as the high and steep mountains and the dense atmosphere of seashore holidays.

Overlooked from Fujian Province, this island is neighbored by Japan in the north and Philippines in the south. Unsurprisingly, the island has become a hub for travel between places in Asia and is one of the tourist destinations with the most convenient transportation in the world.

During the past decades, Taiwan's economy emerged as a miracle. As of today, it is the primary source of foreign capital for South-East Asian countries, thus allowing them to provide complete and high-quality tourist services and facilities.

If you have an opportunity to visit the southeast of Asia, make sure to include Formosa in your itinerary. The beautiful island will offer you an appealing trip that you will find it hard to tear yourself away from.

 Local Highlights: Concurrently home to different groups mainly from the southern Fujian Province, Hakka and the local people, Taiwan also features various colorful human cultures. You will detect the harmonious and prosperous atmosphere in its religions, architectures, languages and dining.

 Food: Visitors should take special care not to miss the dainty dishes here - in fact, the island is dubbed the 'Kingdom of Delicacies' by gourmets.
