Taiwan is an island state south of Okinawa also known as the Republic of China. It has a population of 23 million, is half the size of Tasmania and the capital city, Taipei seems as busy and crowded as Shanghai or Tokyo.
Taiwanese people are colorful, noisy, polite and demonstrative. The food is spicy, with lots of tofu and vegetables sizzled in woks. English is spoken everywhere and signs are in Chinese and English.
The east coast of Taiwan has miles and miles of black sand beaches and rolling surf and is heavily fished. There is a resurgence of the indigenous culture of Taiwan, but like in many places, they have suffered from economic disadvantage and cultural annihilation. The landscape is spectacular, with a huge, colourful marble gorge and well set up bike paths, to cycle around the country.
Taiwan is an easy and comfortable place to learn about Chinese culture for first time visitors.
