Why visit Taiwan?

taiwan map outline

Taiwan located towards the southwest of Okinawa and Japan is home to more than 23 million people. It is one of the most densely populated places in the world with lush forests and steep mountains in abundance. Taipei is the capital city of Taiwan. It is a vibrant city with rich culture and an entertainment hub. The cuisine in Taiwan is a definite must try…

It is a country less-frequented and less-talked about, unhurried yet vibrant, that has a jaw-dropping landscape – oversized sea cliffs and densely forested mountains… It is an idyllic experience for people who are game for a real treat. With Chinese, Japanese and Western influences in its food, culture, folk arts and architecture, Taiwan is a fusion of them all… And a great show case of all. Then there are the museums, simply bursting with treasures, plus a thriving folk culture that includes some wild displays of Taoist and Buddhist worship. We loved the contrast between the uber- modern parts of Taipei and the slow-paced traditional backstreets that seem to be from a different century… Oh and before we forget, the hikes in Taroko Gorge and relaxed evenings in the hot spring resorts are quite out-of-this-world!


These are experiences that are not meant for reading… Come Beyonder with us while we take you through one of the most exciting, yet often-overlooked destinations of Asia.

Meera & GaneshBeyonder Traveller - Japan

Just want to drop a few lines to thank you for all your assistance during our recent trip to Japan. We all had a wonderful time.From day one at Kyoto all the way till Tokyo, we were filled with excitement and memories to last a lifetime. We will always cherish the memories we made while visiting Kyoto, Nara, Hiroshima, Sapporo, Hakone and Tokyo.”


The convenience of being met everywhere and having everything taken care of, not having to worry about where we had to go and how to get there in a foreign country where language is a big issue, made a big difference. From planning the itinerary, considering our time constraint and likes and dislikes,it was crafted keeping us in mind. We would also like to say Thank You to all the guides who toured with us.
