20 Photos to Inspire You to Visit Taiwan


I’m hoping these 20 photos to inspire you to visit Taiwan will convince you just how wonderful this country was. It was somewhere that completely surprised me. Sent there by the tourism board, I was given two weeks to live like a local whilst traveling through the country. Ironically I had been in Taiwan multiple times via a layover, but never left the airport. The airport is well loved by my husband and I — we always rave about the soup dumplings. We eat them at odd hours, usually before 7 am as the layover hits around then. So when I had a chance to leave the airport, I was smitten with the opportunity to discover the island. 20 Photos to Inspire You to Visit Taiwan

Taiwan feels like the heart of Asia. It’s vast cosmopolitan city of Taipei is energetic, chaotic, and gives life to a wide range of experiences. Then just a bit south, you can head into one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen, the Taroko Gorge. The south eastern part of Taiwan, you’ll feel like you’re the only Western tourist there — something I had never experienced in my travels. The south is not as developed but it holds gems like it’s iconic coastline and Hualien, ripe for discovery.

My favorite part of Taiwan was definitely the outdoor nature. From Sun Moon Lake to the hilltop villages of Jiufen and to the coastline, there’s an infinite amount of opportunities to get outdoors. Vibrant street food, happening coffee shops, and enchanting temples are just a few of the things you can expect to see while visiting Taiwan.

    To be honest, I never really thought about Taiwan as a travel destination, but now that I see these beautiful pictures I really want to go there and explore this wonderful place on earth.
    It looks so idyllic and peaceful but at the same time hectic and as if a lot is going on there.
    And there are probably not super many tourists, right?
    Seems like a super interesting place to have adventures 🙂

    Hi,

    I’m very curious of where in Taipei you took the photo of you walking on the railroad and the vespa on the small street. Thankful for your reply!

    Your photos are stunning!! Taiwan is now really high on my list after seeing these photos!

    Just out of curiosity, was it fairly easy to travel around between places without a vehicle?

      It is! The train system is really well done and the busses as well!
