About this book

Taiwan is one of the most crowded countries on Earth but beyond the ocean of people and vehicles, far from the neon and noise that confronts new arrivals, there's an island of breathtaking mountain vistas, bird-rich forests and quaint villages where folk religion thrives.

Bradt Travel Guide: Taiwan is the guide for individuals who want more than the treasures of the National Palace Museum, the beaches of Kending and the well-beaten trails of Alishan. Whether you aim to rough it on mountain peaks, observe age-old rituals in tucked-away temples or wallow in five-star comfort, Bradt's Taiwan will lead you on an unforgettable journey through Asia's newest destination.

"Bradt travel guides are attractive and clearly targeted books, combining professionalism and focus while keeping a personal flavour."
