Taiwan – also known as Ilha Formosa (Beautiful Isle) - is a forest-cloaked island nation located 111 kilometers west of Yonagunijima Island at the westernmost point of the Japanese archipelago. Possessing roughly the same area as Kyushu, Taiwan consists of the main island of Taiwan (shaped roughly like a tobacco leaf) and another 85 islands of various shapes and sizes. With a population of roughly 23 million, Taiwan ranks together with Bangladesh as one of the two most densely populated countries in the world. Taiwan is characterized by a temperate climate with an average temperature of 21 Celsius in the north and 24 Celsius in the south. The summers in Taiwan tend to be hot and humid with frequent typhoons and the arrival of the monsoons from central Asia in the winter months may cause sudden drops in temperature. The autumn months (October/November) are the perfect months for visiting Taiwan. Visitors can take advantage of Taiwan’s natural bounty to mountain climb and fish and to enjoy a variety of marine sports between the months of spring and early autumn. Taiwan also offers a wide array of gastronomic experiences, including the Great Five Cuisines of China (Beijing, Shanghai, Sichuan, Cantonese, Hunan) as well as enticing Taiwanese, Yunnan, Mongolian, and Islamic fare. In addition, outdoor food stalls (Taiwan’s ‘fast food’) are highly popular among the locals. Since the Chinese began emigrating to Taiwan in the 1600’s, Taiwan’s history has been characterized by dramatic change, including invasions by European powers, Qing rule, and cession to Japan. Taiwan began to maintain distance between itself and the Chinese mainland as a result of the civil war that ravaged China during the late 1940’s.
