Taiwan has numerous virgin terrains unknown to the world, and they are magnificent!
It’s an island that people visit to experience the culture of modern cities and busy night markets. However, you might not know that you can also enjoy stays in resorts with hot springs or enjoy a view of dramatic mountains in the backdrop of traditional Chinese temples.
Best time of the year to visit Taiwan
The ideal time for a tour of Taiwan is during the spring season – from April to June. Or, you can also visit in the fall, i.e. between September and November. The weather during these two seasons is pleasant and mild, and is an off-season for tourists. Hence, you can avoid the crowd effectively during your vacation.
However, the peak months in Taiwan are July and August. But, the climate conditions are extremely humid and hot along with high hotel room prices. You certainly don’t want to spend those extra bucks necessary for lodging.
Also, if have a constricted budget, you might want to visit between December and March.
You’ll get great discounts at that time!
Places to see and things to enjoy
Taiwan is a beautiful country having a diverse topography. However, it’s an under-rated destination of tourism. Thus, you will be able to see the people here are still untouched by the effect of commercialisation that rules the world now.
Explore the metropolitan life in the capital city of Taiwan, Taipei, or mesmerise yourself by visiting the golden waterfall. Else, other uncommon things that you can do in Taiwan are:
1.Enthral in the beauty of Ying Yang sea
You’ll believe it is a nature’s marvel when you see the beautiful contrast of golden yellow at the bay and glistening blue colours of water beyond that stretches the sea to infinity.
2.Trek to the top of an extinct volcano
Mt Keelung is 588 metres tall, and its Chinese name is translated to a ‘chicken cage’. Many say the shape of the mountain actually resembles it. However, you can decide it for yourself when you visit this extinct volcano.
3.Visit Long Shan Temple that’ll calm your soul
Even though this doesn’t belong to many people’s to-do list in Taipei, you can visit the temple to understand the mix of tradition and modernity that Taiwan carries. You’ll get a glimpse of Taiwanese locals and their religious life.
4.Enjoy the Sun Moon Lake
It’s the largest water body in Taiwan and remains busy all year around. You can take the yacht to travel from one side of the lake to the other. Numerous hotels are there around the lake, and you can enjoy the sunset sitting in the comfort of your hotel room.
Also, you can visit the Formosa Aboriginal Culture Village from here in a cable car.
Therefore, you get a massive number of choices in Taiwan; be it the food, scenic views or exciting experiences – you’ll get it all.
