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.

PS — Are You Booking a Trip Soon? Use My Booking Checklist!

These are the sites I use most to book my own trips. Using the links below is a great way to support Bon Traveler’s travel journalism at no extra cost to you. If you need help organizing your itinerary, get my free travel itinerary template here.

1. Book Your Flights

I use Skyscanner to find the best flights. It searches 100s of airlines and websites across the globe to ensure you’re not missing out on any route options or deals.

2. Book Your Accommodations

I use Booking.com for hotels and guest houses. They have the biggest inventory and consistently offer the best rates.

3. Book Your Tours & Experiences

I use Viator or Get Your Guide to find the best tours and experiences. They are my favorite tour search engines. I always check both as their inventory varies depending on the destination.

4. Book Your Rental Car

Self-driving is the best way to explore most destinations. I use Discover Cars for our rental cars, select full coverage insurance, and opt for a reputable company like Alamo, Hertz, or Sixt.

5. Don’t Forget Airport Lounge Access

I use Priority Pass to gain access to 1,400+ VIP lounges and airport experiences worldwide. The Priority Pass app is the first thing I check when I have a layover. I’ve been a member for over a decade, and having a comfortable place to relax before and between flights makes air travel so much more enjoyable.

6. Don’t Forget Travel Insurance

I never leave the country without travel insurance. It provides comprehensive protection in case anything goes wrong (ie. illness, injury, theft, and cancelations, etc.). I use it frequently for my travels to stay protected.

My favorite companies that offer the best coverage and rates are:

  1. 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 🙂

    Love from Germany

      It’s definitely one of those places that doesn’t feel overwhelmed with tourists!

  2. Hello! Your pictures are REALLY REALLY nice! May I know which camera you used to take these pictures and how you edited them? I’ve been looking for a travel camera to buy:)

    Thank you!!

  3. 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!

  4. 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!
