All Activities in Taiwan
A trip to Taiwan is far from complete without travelling to Taipei, a bustling city of street food and city attractions. With a private driver, you can take day trips to surrounding attractions such as Jiufen, the street inspired by 'Spirited Away', or Shifen, iconic train tracks to release sky lanterns. You can even do quick trips to surrounding cities such as Taichung. For the more adventurous, spend a little more time conquering Taiwan's highest mountain, Jade Mountain; or trek along the majestic Taroko Gorge.
Taichung is a good base to many amazing sights. From Taichung, you can take day trips to Sun Moon Lake, a beautiful calm lake, and Cingjing Farm, a greenland with free-roaming sheep. You can also take day trips to a field of lavender (Lavender Cottage) and Gaomei Wetlands for a breathtaking sunset. If you're an avid mountain lover, you can also take on Taiwan's highest mountain, Jade Mountain, from Taichung. Hire a private driver for the most convenience.
Kaohsiung is a quiet seaside city with a good mix of instagrammable attractions and mouth watering food. Kaohsiung is also gateway to the beautiful Kenting island, Taiwan's equivalent of Maldives island just a 3 hour bus ride away. In Kenting, you can't go wrong with water activities — dive in Kenting Marine Park among turtles and lionfish, or pick up surfing or paddleboarding by the coast. Kaohsiung can be best explored with a local driver to give you the best recommendations.
One of the most scenic areas in Taiwan, Hualien is the base to explore the famous Taroko Gorge and the gorgeous Qingshui Cliffs. Majestic marble valleys, tall waterfalls, forest hikes and mountain to mountain suspension bridges are just a few highlights of this national park. Apart from Taroko Gorge, also check out sandy beaches and turqoise waterfalls in Hualien County, a perfect trip away from the city!
Start in Taipei and spend 2 days exploring its attractions by public transport or via a private driver. Then, join in a day trip to Jiufen and Shifen to see the 'Spirited Away' street and release a sky lantern.
From Taipei, take the High Speed Rail to Hualien, a beautiful coastal city. Explore Dongdamen Night Market, Nanbin Seaside Park, and Four-eight Highland. Then do a 1-day trek in the main highlight of Hualien - Taroko Gorge, a massive canyon with breathtaking views.
Finally, either return to Taipei or head to Kaohsiung to return home.
Start in Taipei to hike up Jade Mountain, the highest mountain in Taiwan. The hike will take 3 days and you can opt for return transfer to Taipei for convenience.
After the hike, head towards Kenting, known for its clear seas and good vibes. You’ll need to take a 4-hr express bus from Kaohsiung.
In Kenting, try out surf paddle boarding, or choose to dive in the beautiful clear sea. There’s also night markets and national parks to check out. You can then head back to Kaohsiung to explore further or take a flight home from there!
Start in Taichung for amazing day trips. On day 1, head to Cingjing farm (green grassland with sheep) and end the day at Sun Moon Lake. Then, head to Rainbow Village and Gaomei Wetlands the next day. Finally, end off with a day trip to Alishan.
Then, make your way towards Taipei via High-Speed Rail or a private driver. Take 2 days to explore Taipei’s city attractions and night markets, and on day 3, take a day trip out. Foodies can go to Jiufen/ Shifen whereas nature lovers can go to Yehliu Geopark to admire rock formations.
