Sample exciting festivals or shop for basement bargains and designer labels. Take time to indulge in the local passion for delicious food. Then admire the treasures of the National Palace Museum and wonder at Taipei 101, until recently the world’s tallest building. Beyond the capital, Hualien is known for its magnificent scenery and the beautiful Taroko Gorge. Taitung is the place to go for stunning mountain vistas. Visit Nantou for the unbelievable Sun Moon Lake. From Khaosiung explore the Love River and be sure to stop at Pingtung to hike up Kenting National Park’s mountains. Ride the surf in Yilan or go to Hsinchu to discover northern Taiwan’s oldest city. It's no wonder that Taiwan was originally known as the Ilha Formosa (beautiful Island).
