    Here are the Taiwan hot spots that are an absolute must to visit. You won’t find spots like these anywhere else in the world, so pack your bags and prepare to be amazed.

    Residents of Taiwan live among natural beauty and fertile soils. Taiwan holds abundant natural resources within its diverse landscape of mountains, hills, plains, basins, islands, valleys, and coasts. Taiwan lies at the Tropic of Cancer, generating tropic, subtropic, and temperate environments.

    Visit Taroko National Park for precipitous mountains and abrupt canyons. And don’t miss the sunrise and sea of clouds in the high mountain resorts of the Alishan National Scenic Area. Afterwards, speed down the mountains through endless forests on the Alishan Forest Railway. But don’t stop there; continue south to Kenting National Park, the oldest national park in Taiwan, and the one most celebrated by locals. Then head up to Sun Moon Lake, where the sky and water fade into each other like an ancient Chinese brush painting.

    Now that you know where to go, we hope these photographs will give you more of an idea of the world awaiting your arrival.
