Taiwan is one of the most crowded countries on Earth but beyond the ocean of people and vehicles, far from the neon and noise that confronts new arrivals, there’s an island of breathtaking mountain vistas, bird-rich forests and quaint villages where folk religion thrives. This is the guide for individuals who want more than the treasures of the National Palace Museum, the beaches of Kending and the well-beaten trails of Alishan. Whether you aim to rough it on mountain peaks, observe age-old rituals in tucked-away temples or wallow in five-star comfort, Bradt’s Taiwan will lead you on an unforgettable journey through Asia’s newest destination.

  • Comprehensive coverage of major business destinations: Taipei, Taichung, Kaohsiung and Hsinchu
  • Taiwan's notoriously shy wildlife – where to see the island's 20-plus endemic bird species, the Formosan black bear, Reeves's muntjac deer and more than 400 species of butterfly
  • Hiking and biking in Taiwan's world-class mountains – including the low-down on what permits and equipment are needed before you go
