Taiwan is a tropical island located off the coast of southeastern China, southwest of Okinawa and north of the Philippines. The island is governed by the Republic of China (ROC), and since very little other land is controlled by the ROC, the terms Taiwan and Republic of China are sometimes used interchangeably. Taiwan is one of the most densely populated regions in the world, but it's also a very scenic island that's known for steep mountains, stunning national parks, hot springs, fine beaches and lush forests.

Ilha Formosa ("Beautiful Island") was the name given to Taiwan by Portuguese sailors upon their first sight of this lush island, and it was known as Formosa until fairly recently. The island lives up to its erstwhile name, with its high mountains near Wulai, excellent hiking in Taroko Gorge, some of the world's best hot springs and the stunning basalt cliffs of the nearby Penghu Islands. Toss in the sights of Taipei, a world-class city, and you couldn't ask for more. Taipei features many colourful cultural festivals, including Chinese New Year, the Dragon Boat Festival and the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival. Or you can have a soak in one of the more than 100 hot springs Taiwan offers, most of which are in the Datun Mountains of the Yangmingshan National Park. Green Island features snorkeling through forests of coral, with good visibility throughout the year. Taiwan's northeast coastal road offers spectacular panoramas through the foothills of the Central Mountain Range while overlooking the East China Sea and the Pacific Ocean. Tainan, the oldest city on the island and known as the "City of 100 Temples," offers some of the best examples of Confucian temple architecture in Taiwan. Or visit one of the many small villages that remain unchanged despite the advent of modern technology.
