Synopsis:

Taiwan is one of the most crowded countries on Earth but beyond the ocean of people and vehicles, far from the neon and noise that confronts new arrivals, there’s an island of breathtaking mountain vistas, bird-rich forests and quaint villages where folk religion thrives. This is the guide for individuals who want more than the treasures of the National Palace Museum, the beaches of Kending and the well-beaten trails of Alishan. Whether you aim to rough it on mountain peaks, observe age-old rituals in tucked-away temples or wallow in five-star comfort, Bradt’s Taiwan will lead you on an unforgettable journey through Asia’s newest destination.

From the Back Cover: ·        Hike deep into Yushan National Park on colonial-era trails
·        Don your hard hat and brave the riotous Beehive Fireworks Festival
·        Spot some of Taiwan’s 25+ endemic birds among the forested hills of Wulai
·        Look out for nesting green turtles on the Penghu Islands
·        Get around with ease: Chinese site names and comprehensive language guide included
 
 
Long famed for its economic triumphs, Taiwan’s abundant natural attractions have tended to fly under the radar. Yet this diminutive country more than lives up to its older name of Ilha Formosa, or ‘beautiful island’. Its lofty mountains, marble-walled hot springs, lunar badlands and butterfly-thronged forests all appear to have come straight from a Chinese scroll painting. And then there’s the human drama, from the fashionable denizens of pulsating Taipei to the aboriginal tribes who keep ancient traditions alive and those performing poignant rituals at exquisite folk shrines up and down the land.
 
Packed with background information on Taiwan’s rich history and culture and invaluable practical advice, this guide remains the essential choice for the curious visitor.
 
 
Journalist Steven Crook first visited Taiwan in 1991 – and never left. He resides full-time in Tainan City and writes about the country for international magazines and newspapers.
