Taipei Tours and Cruises

Amazing Taiwan Tour tour - 5 Days

Natural beauty and lively cities . . . and all made in Taiwan

The group of Portuguese sailors, said to be the first Westerners to lay eyes on the island, described Taiwan as Llha Formose - which means Beautiful Island. And on this imaginative five day tour you will get to appreciate just why it makes such an impression on visitors. With the lush mountains of Wulai, pulsating cities like the capital Taipei, the stunning basalt cliffs of Penghu, great hiking in Taroko Gorge and some of the world’s best hot springs, Taiwan cuts a figure as one of the most diverse destinations in Asia. Within the borders of this small, sweet-potato-shaped island, barely the size of many American states, lies a world of contrasts and a mix of cultural influences you’re not likely to find anywhere else in the world.
