Asia Things to Do: 385 reviews and 595 photos
Taiwan was previously known "Formosa" which means "Beautiful" in Portuguese.
My visit there was primarily to Taipei. I am impressed by reputedly the largest and most complete collection of Chinese art at the Palace Musuem in Taipei, apparently all carted from Beijing Imperial collection when the Koumintang retreated to Taiwan in 1949.
Taiwan gourmet has developed over the years and is a great place for Chinese food from restaurant to street stalls in the many night markets in Taipei and all over.
Have not been to hill tribe tourist villages and beautiful mountains, gorges and valleys and stunning coastlines of Taiwan.
