Taiwan - Tailor made holidays by Eastravel

Taiwan traditional dancers

Shaped like a tobacco leaf, Taiwan is a land of contrasts. The climate is temperate in the north, tropical in the south. One of the most developed nations in Asia, Taiwan remains proud of its rich and varied aboriginal culture. Dramatic coastal scenery fringes an interior two thirds wooded hills and soaring marble peaks, split east to west by the magnificent towering cliffs of Taroko Gorge. Bullet trains race from Taipei in the north to the mountainous south, where a steam locomotive winds through glades of cherry blossom to the summit of Mount Chu. On Taiwan’s roof the Sun Moon Lake of legend glitters, Mount Ali gazes down upon a sea of clouds.

In Taipei, the exotic and intoxicating Snake Alley night market winds through the heart of Taiwan’s glittering 21st Century capital. Traditional cuisine is served from world class restaurants. The National Palace Museum holds priceless treasures, brought from the mainland as China fell to the communists in 1949. Taipei 101, one of the world’s tallest and most spectacular buildings combines design features from traditional pagodas, dazzling technology to encapsulate this sense of wondrous contrast.

We have a selection of tailor made itineraries which includes some of our favourite places and travel experiences, which can be included in your personalised itinerary. Use them as a starting point, combine them with your own ideas.

Rail Tour of Taiwan
The joy of rail travel in Taiwan lies outside the carriage, in the stunning alpine and coastal landscapes rolling past your window. Towns and cities appear, only to merge again into timeless pastoral scenes; great mountain ranges loom, then part to reveal deserted, black sand beaches, the glittering sea beyond.
