Beyond Their Expectations
However, when a visitor arrives in Taiwan, he or she will discover that this island nurtures a wide array of tourism and ecological resources, from the diversity of traditional folk customs such as the Pingxi Lantern Festival, to the richness of culture, modern arts found inside the National Palace Museum, and of course the mouthwatering food. Overall, people often discover that the Taiwan experience is “beyond their expectations.” Geographically, Taiwan is situated at the point where the Asian continental shelf meets the vast Pacific Ocean, providing it with an unparalleled ecological diversity and a mass of plant and animal species concentrated in a relatively small place—perfect for ecotourism. Taiwan has world-class natural landscapes such as the remarkable Taroko Gorge, the highest mountain in Northeast Asia in Jade Mountain (Yushan) and the breathtaking Sun Moon Lake. These places provide countless opportunities for great island adventures and unforgettable memories.
