Overview

Written by an author who has lived in Taiwan for 19 years, Bradt’s brand-new Taiwan explores the island’s breathtaking mountains, bird-rich forests and quaint villages where folk religion thrives. Travellers are discovering there’s much more to Taiwan than high-tech gadgetry and a difficult relationship with China. Author Steven Crook leads visitors through a land where Chinese tradition lives on like nowhere else against a backdrop of northeast Asia’s highest mountains. 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 another world waiting to be discovered. This book 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 they 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 visitors on an unforgettable journey through Asia’s newest destination.
