Its bustling cities include Taipei, the capital and the country’s hub of commerce and culture. Witness fine examples of architecture from numerous periods both ancient and modern, where temples and skyscrapers co-exist.
Natural beauty abounds in Taiwan too, as witnessed in spectacular fashion with pristine beaches that dot the coastline, in Taroko National Park gorges carved by rivers that flow from the central mountains, waterfalls, hot springs, and the turquoise Sun Moon Lake are waiting to be explored.
Taiwan is a land of spirituality and tradition, and you’ll have every opportunity to embrace it all in 5-star luxury on your land journey. Experience old cultures and traditions at night markets where sellers ply their age-old crafts and fresh produce. At classic and old-world indigenous villages, time appears to have stood still. At Fo Guang Shan Monastery in Kaohsiung, the largest Buddhist monastery in Taiwan, a revered Buddha statue rises 108 meters from the base, making it the world’s tallest bronze sitting Buddha statue.
With Scenic, you’ll find it’s more than an escorted tour, it’s a handcrafted luxury journey in a class of its own.
