Steeped in traditional Chinese culture, with influences from Japan and the island’s own indigenous tribes, Taiwan is full of surprises and a great destination for adventurous families wanting entertainment and a child-friendly holiday. The island has it all: good food, a beautiful coastline, awe-inspiring mountains, cities suitable for children and plenty of sunshine.
Taiwan lies 165 kilometres off the coast of mainland China, separated from the land by the Taiwan Strait. The island is 36,000 square kilometres, 394 kilometres in length and 144 kilometres at its widest point.
