Taiwan is one of the most densely populated places in the world, the majority of its 24 million inhabitants living in cities along the west coast.
Taiwan is not only a land of contrasts, but also a culture of contrasts, with concoction of futuristic and traditional customs. Taiwan is home to around 15,000 temples and there is a strong following of Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism. Many Taiwanese continue to celebrate traditional Chinese festivals, worshiping gods and goddesses and warding off demons.
The crowded cities are home to a plethora of restaurants, shops and entertainment options in one part, and lush forested mountains, sandy beaches and marble-walled gorges in the other. The food is amazing and a full Asian range can be found including Cantonese, Sichuanese, Beijing-style – as well as Japanese food which are considered to be the best outside of Tokyo.
