It is often said good things come in small packages, and Taiwan is certainly no exception. What this island nation lacks in size, it makes up for with cosmopolitan culture, impressive history and spectacular scenery. Whether exploring lush mountains, enjoying world-class shopping and dining, or navigating the streets of Taipei - a glittering capital which could be described as ‘Manhattan of the East’ - it is easy to fall under the spell of exotic Taiwan.

The Offer
Uncover the secrets of Taiwan on a 10 day cultural tour through this island nation. Spend seven nights in accommodation as you travel the region exploring some of Taiwan’s most impressive sites. Explore Taipei on a city tour. See the iconic Taipei 101 Building, the National Palace Museum and the Liuhe Night Markets with its impressive array of street food and local produce. Visit Sun Moon Lake, the 'Jewel of Taiwan’. Explore the “Nine Aboriginal Tribes” Culture Village, and enjoy a trip to Taroko National Park with its lush mountainous landscape and scenic gorges. With return international flights, seven nights accommodation, nine meals, English-speaking guides and more, this package has all the ingredients for a lifetime of memories.
