When Portuguese sailors sailed past Taiwan in the 1500s, they named it ‘Ilha Formosa’, meaning the beautiful isle, and not much has changed today. Taiwan has a formidable natural beauty, from its flawless beaches and national parks to its impressive urban life, this little island once housed the world’s tallest building, Taipei 101.
A small island with a big attitude, many wonder what life is really like here: do people really go to night markets that often? How much tea do Taiwanese people drink? Does Taiwan have its own language? What is stinky tofu? Why is Taiwan known by so many names?
We hope that by the end of your WildTaiwan journey, you’ll have a better understanding of the answers to these questions. We’ll take you to the doorstep of Taiwan’s heart and introduce you to her people. We encourage you to ask the right questions, try that exotic-looking food, and make friends with locals. We believe travel is about seeing the world through different eyes, and that is why we’re here. To help you experience Taiwan, differently.
