Often overlooked, Taiwan is a small island with big things to offer. Diverse, charming and always authentic, this little hub of Asian splendour is just as alluring as its lofty next door neighbour, China.
Over the centuries many diverse cultures have inhabited Taiwan, including the Indigenous Taiwanese, Dutch, Spanish, Japanese, and Han Chinese. Take a closer look at historic influences such as Fort Santo Domingo in in Xinbei, built in 1629 by the Spanish and a beautiful spot for an afternoon picnic. Fort Zeelandia was built in the 17th century by the Dutch and The Chimei Museum offers a clear example of European-influenced architecture. In Taipei, the National Palace Museum is home to an extensive collection of Chinese imperial artefacts.
Night markets are hugely popular but Shilin Night Market is by far one of the most famous, and you won’t get a better selection. We have Taiwan to thank for gua bao (steamed pork belly sandwich), bubble tea and xiaolongbao (steamed dumplings). Din Tai Fung is a chain restaurant arguably serving the world’s best xiaolongbao. Find the original eatery on XinYi Road, Taipei.
Sun Moon Lake is a beautiful destination for a short getaway. A huge body of water fringed by hotels, its sedentary atmosphere makes for a relaxing city escape.
