Visiting Taiwan means visiting one of the most famous buildings in the world, Taipei 101, which, until a few years ago, was the world's tallest tower. This 1,670-foot high building certainly leaves an impression. The striking landscape of the island of Taiwan means that the most popular activities there are excursions to magnificent mountains with lush vegetation; places such as Taroko Gorge. If it is relaxation you want, look no further than its sparkling white beaches. Another way to discover the country is by experiencing its rich and diverse customs. Every weekend there are opera performances, while Buddhist festivals are both frequent and numerous.
