Taiwan in a Nutshell

One can easily get lost in Taiwan's streets, not in a bad way though. Exploration is something that is highly advised when a trip to the beautiful isle is planned and taken. Daytrips to various sights are suggested but partaking in nighttime activities is the real charmer. Eat your heart out as you sample some of the finest local dishes in the area. Do some shopping while you are at it. Do not miss the night markets which run until the wee hours of the evening, with some stores actively trading until the early morning.
When in Taiwan, travel as the locals do, hop on a bike and cycle around the city. As you visit the local temples and establishments, bask in the glorious sceneries that accompany you for the ride. Explore the city with your best efforts but do not miss out on attractions like ever popular and well-beloved Formosa Island. Spend some time enjoying the sun and the sand in Taiwan's white beaches. Take advantage of the basalt cliffs and take in the beauty of the local forestry while you are at it.
Enjoy the city offerings that Taiwan can provide. Visit a mall or two, go to a museum, or visit a temple. Sample some of the best foods around, may it be from a hawker center or fine dining restaurant. And then spend time immersing yourself in the wonders of nature, visit beaches, forests, and majestic mountains. Truly diverse, Taiwan is a destination that you won’t regret choosing.
