Taiwan is undoubtedly one of the most famous islands in Asia, thanks to its remarkable people, culture and natural landscapes. While heavily westernised, it helps to know a little Mandarin, Hokkien or Cantonese to make your travels easier. Otherwise, you can stick to English because most of its locals in major cities are well-versed in this language.

The best time to visit Taiwan is during the months between October and December, when typhoons are not so prevalent. You can also go during the first few months of the year, mainly during January or February, when the Lunar New Year festivities are held. There are various modes of transportation in Taiwan, so getting around will pose no problem. High-speed trains, buses, metros and taxis are readily available for your convenience.
