Important Places In Taiwan

Taiwan, or officially The Republic of Taiwan, is also recognized historically as Formosa, from the Portuguese words “Ilha Formosa” – Stunning Island, the very first words that said to have come out from the otherwise speechless Portuguese navigators upon laying their questioning sights on the island. And appropriately so, for the name stuck for centuries to come and till now, numerous sentimental souls still insist on addressing this enjoyable isle as Formosa.

Which has a acreage of 35,980 sq. km., geographical eccentricities awash the terrain of this sweet potato-shaped island gem. Through the lush and expanding verdant mountains of Wulai, the scenic ruggedness of Taroko Gorge, the dramatic basalt cliffs of Penghu, to the Taian Hot Springs, Taiwan is fast gaining a reputation as about the most diverse nature travelling destinations in Asia.

Important Places In Taiwan

The Taiwanese culture is usually a sweet brew of Asian mainland and archipelagic ethnic mores and traditions, being at a strategic economic and cultural crossroads in between the two. It comprises the Chinese culture at its core, due to the Taiwanese ethnical origins in the Chinese mainland, with a wholesome spicing of Japanese, Malayan Austronesian and Western cultural influences.

It has been seen that the surging economic increase of Taiwan for the last thirty years or so is nothing else short of a miracle, and indeed it truly is amicably dubbed as “The Taiwan Miracle”, an enduring testament in the Taiwanese patriotic resilience and tenacity. But seeing them up close, the Taiwanese people are affable, warm and cheerful. As a matter of fact, they are a few of the nicest individuals in the world. They’re so packed with renqing wei, translated roughly as “personal affection,” that a first-time visitor would never feel any bit someone unfamiliar upon arrival, throughout his stay and absolutely upon leaving this gorgeous tropical isle state.

So feel free to visit Taiwan, and be among the sentimental ones who can’t turn down calling this isle Formosa – The Enjoyable Tropical isle.
