In Taiwan, tourist industry has been only emerging. However, there are more than enough Chinese visitors. Large share of the population lives on the west part of the island. The east of the island is composed of mountains and national parks. If you want to enjoy the bustle of the city in front of nature, visit the capital city of Taipei. Just a few miles away is a completely different world - the wildlife of Yangmingshan National Park. But with us you go even further - to the Golden Waterfall, to the Nanya Rock Formation, to the geopark or to the marble gorge.

The Taroko National Park is one of the most popular places in Taiwan. It lies on the eastern side of the island where the mountains of the national park rise up to a height of more than 3,000 meters from the Philippine Sea beaches.
e northern coast of Taiwan offer plentiful natural phenomena. When you head out from Taipei City by train to Ruifang, you only have a transfer to a shuttle bus that runs along the northeastern coast. You can buy a one-day ticket for 50 taiwan dollars (approx. CZK 36) directly at the driver and you can get off at any of the stops. At the train station, do not forget to pick up information and bus timetables at the Infocenter.
Close to the capital of Taiwan - Taipei - there is the Yangmingshan National Park. This area is volcanic in origin and underground there are magmatic deposits, which make it a great number of hot springs. The highest mountain is Qixingshan (1,120 m above sea level), and if you have a good physique, you can take it.
Taiwan is a relatively small island on the southeast coast of China. In spite of its turbulent history, when the island fought Japan and China, the status of Taiwan is not yet clear. The People's Republic of China (PRC) considers it to be a failed province. Taiwan itself is called the Republic of China and keeps its distance from the Communist PRC, but it claims to be part of it, despite the fact that it has never gained its territory.
