An Introduction to Taiwan

Taiwan is a small island, but it boasts a vast and diverse ecosystem, a varied history, and a mix of different cultures. Home to 16 different aboriginal tribes, it is sometimes thought to be the birthplace of Austronesian languages. Over 70% of the population speaks Taiwanese Hokkien, a dialect of Chinese.

From mountainous regions to coastal cities, Taiwan has something for everyone. Ready to explore the night market life and learn more about the cultural and ecological diversity of Taiwan? Check out the links below!
