Taiwan 2nd Edition

Steven Crook

MalawiFlying largely under the tourist radar, Taiwan has a wealth of abundant natural wonders and pulsating cities that make this diminutive nation perfect for the curious traveller. Trek through butterfly-thronged forests, scale one of the country’s countless peaks or visit the exquisite folk shrines and see ancient traditions kept alive by aboriginal tribes. Taiwan more than lives up to its older name of Ilha Formosa, or ‘beautiful island’.

This second edition of Bradt’s Taiwan remains the essential guidebook for the intrepid visitor. Detailed sections on the island’s history and culture plus new and updated information on the country’s flourishing eco-tourism opportunities make this the perfect guide. Taiwan annually receives 6 million visitors, 400,000 from the UK, and visitor numbers are predicted to reach 10 million a year by 2016. Author Steven Crook first visited Taiwan in 1991 – and never left. He resides full-time in Tainan City and writes about the country for international newspapers and magazines.
