There are very many good reasons to visit Taiwan… but if it boils down to three “great” USPs, what are they?
Taiwan has an excellent transport infrastructure, including the new award-winning Changhua Highspeed Rail Station. Earlier this year the Station, in central Taiwan, received a prestigious honour recognising its modern, environment-friendly design, when it was named the popular-choice winner in the Bus & Train Stations category of the Architizer’s A-plus awards. The station resembles a greenhouse, and has a large multi-paned glass wall giving travellers an unobstructed view of the rural landscape of Changhua and enabling sunlight to stream through the spacious concourse.
Taiwan is known for its towering mountains and, indeed, is spotted with numerous mountains peaks that rise over 3,000 meters. It is also the home of Northeast Asia’s tallest mountain, Yu Mountain (Yushan), which is nearly 4,000 meters in height. Besides mountains, beautiful coastal scenes are part of Taiwan’s great natural assets. Starting from the northern tip of the island is the North Coast & Guanyinshan National Scenic Area and Northeast and Yilan Coast National Scenic Area, featuring a wide variety of coastal geography.
In recent years, many disused industrial sites around Taiwan have been renovated and given a new purpose. These sites, often referred to as cultural-creative hubs, have become big draws for international travellers alike. Interesting locations for learning more about local culture and history, they commonly house cafés, restaurants, and shops selling creative-design household goods and decorations, and also often serve as venues for special cultural events such as concerts and art exhibitions. Examples include Kaohsiung’s Pier-2 Art Center, Taipei’s Songshan Cultural and Creative Park and Huashan 1914 Creative Park.
WORKING HOLIDAY PERMIT EXCHANGE BETWEEN FRANCE & TAIWAN
Working holidays in Taiwan have been possible for young French people – and vice-versa – since August 8. Each year, Taiwan and France will each offer a quota of 500 places for young people from 18 to 30 years for a working holiday for a maximum of 180 days stay, renewable once. Young people of both countries will be able to learn Chinese or French and learn more about the culture, customs, and society of the other country through tourism and linguistic stays allowing them also to work.
