Jiufen is a historic mining town. With its antique architecture and narrow alleyways, Jiufen’s nostalgic charm offers the perfect inspiration for artists; in fact, Jiufen served as a model for scenes from the 2001 Academy Award-winning film, Spirited Away.
Jiaosi is Taiwan's best location for hot spring resorts. The natural water of the hot springs is clear and enriched with rejuvenating minerals.
Taroko National Park is one of eight national parks in Taiwan and home to the landmark Taroko Gorge. Sites of the park include Swallow Grotto and Tiansiang.
One of the most important sites in Taroko, Tiansiang is the starting point of the river valley and offers some of the best overviews of the gorge.
In this section of Taroko valley, countless small holes in the rock walls were created through erosion and became natural habitats for birds. In the past, swallows soared through the air, creating a vision of hundreds of swallows flying in the valley. Thus, the beautiful name “Swallow Grotto” was given.
Stroll through the park to enjoy the stunning natural scenery. With mountains and hills in the backdrop and streams of clean water running by your feet, the wetlands are not only picturesque but also home to a diverse range of ecology.
Tainan was one of the first cities in Taiwan. The city was also the first capital, and the center of politics and economy for about 300 years. From this history, an ancient atmosphere has emerged with the most abundant collection of historical buildings & national treasures in all of Taiwan.

Hidden in the mountains, Sun Moon Lake is Taiwan's biggest fresh water lake and also a popular honeymoon destination. The lake surrounds Lalu island. The east side of the lake resembles the sun while the west side resembles a moon, hence the lake's name: Sun Moon Lake. The area surrounding the lake has many trails for walking, hiking and biking.
Considered one of the four great international museums of human culture (alongside the Louvre in Paris, The Met in New York, and The British Museum), the National Palace Museum houses the best artifacts of Chinese civilization. The museum concentrates 8,000 years worth of artifacts. The depth of the collection is so vast, displays are rotated once every three months.
An important point of trade during 18th and 19th centuries, Lukang (Deer Port) is named for its trade of deerskins during the Dutch colonial period. The city remained central Taiwan’s most populous city until the early 20th century. Lukang was named one of the Top 10 Small Tourist Towns by the Tourism Bureau of Taiwan for its rich heritage, great food and friendly environment.
