Taiwan is a charming island in East Asia, best known for its vibrant culture, delicious fusion cuisine and tranquil lakes and mountain ranges. Though Taiwan is small in size, it is large in life and is one of the most densely populated places in the world, the majority of its 24 million inhabitants living in cities along the west coast.

Taiwan is not only a land of contrasts, but also a culture of contrasts, with concoction of futuristic and traditional customs. It is highly technically developed and easily accessible with 2 airports, extensive bus routes and high-speed railways connecting across the island. Taiwan is home to around 15,000 temples and there is a strong following of Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism. Many Taiwanese continue to celebrate traditional Chinese festivals, worshiping gods and goddesses and warding off demons.

The crowded cities are home to a plethora of restaurants, shops and entertainment options in one part, and lush forested mountains, sandy beaches and marble-walled gorges in the other. The food is amazing and aside from Taiwanese food, a full Asian range can be found including Cantonese, Sichuanese, Beijing-style and Japanese food.

Like Japan and South Korea, Taiwan also has its own Sakura season. The Cherry Blossoms are in bloom starting in January and ending in April.

Our Tour Guides

Our customers think the world of us

Awards are all well and good, but it's our customer feedback that means the most to us. We're proud that so many of our customers would be happy to recommend us to their friends and family - that's all the accolade we need.

  • We had a fantastic time and were so looked after by our guide. Wendy Wu took care of all the travel arrangements, hotel facilities, and tours. Everything went smoothly from visas to flights, eating arrangements and free time in places of interest. Would definitely recommend.

    Janette

  • The service was impeccable from the beginning of the tour to the very end. A first class service all the way. We visited everything on the itinerary and more. Our young tour guide was an incredible guide, he managed the group with ease and his knowledge was excellent, as was his kind and very caring disposition!

Frequently Asked Questions about Taiwan

  • When is the best time to visit Taiwan?
    Taiwan is a year-round destination; you will find different activities to enjoy in every season. Generally, the most popular time to visit Taiwan is between September to November, when the Autumn climate is cool and dry.  

  • Do I need a visa?
    A visa is not required for Australian passport holders for entry into Taiwan for stay up to 90 days.

  • Do I need a guide?
    Taiwan is the ultimate destination for exploration, be that independently or with a guide. If you like having an expert at your side for the duration of your trip, we would highly recommend having a guide for your tour. They will be able to take you to the iconic sights as well as the hidden gems with no troubles as well as share their passion, and love for their local region. A guide will be your local resource throughout your trip, whether that be to talk about the history of a place or to suggest an excellent restaurant! Taiwan can of course be done independently but we would still recommend a guide or local to be on hand to point you in the right direction or help recommend where to go. 

  • What is the food like?
    Taiwanese cuisine is delicious, colourful and healthy. Meals are usually served with a bowl of rice and several dishes of vegetables, seafood (normally fish and/or shrimps), and meats (pork, beef or chicken). Taiwan’s other main staple is noodles, most famous being beef noodle. All meals (excluding drinks) are included in our fully inclusive group tours from the groups’ arrival until the day of departure. Our schedule of meals is designed so that you can experience the local dishes, their individual flavours as well as the different ways they are prepared and cooked throughout Taiwan. Food is an important element of Taiwanese culture. It is a time for families and friends to come together and much of family life revolves around the dinner table. Most food is eaten with chopsticks so best get practicing as cutlery is not always available at restaurants.
