An island of diverse attractions, Taiwan charms visitors with its little-known surprises: misty peaks famous for sunrises and high-mountain tea, the world's finest Chinese art museum, coral reefs that thrive in tropical waters, and some of the best Chinese cuisine in the world.


Arranged in regional chapters, this comprehensive guide covers Taiwan in fascinating detail—from Taipei, where traditional night markets and Taoist temples contrast a 21st-century skyline (the world's tallest building is here), to stunning Taroko Gorge, a marble canyon etched with hiking trails, to gorgeous beaches lapped by turquoise waters, and aboard the alpine railway to the top of 10,000-foot Alishan, a mystical realm above the clouds offering fabulous scenery and sublime relaxation.
