This short stay is perfect for those who wish to explore the beauty of Taiwan, from the contemporary capital of Taipei to the ancient capital of Tainan.
Arrive in Taiwan's capital, Taipei, where you will be met by a driver and transferred to your hotel to check in. Taipei is a laidback and vibrant city that, as well as being packed with the upmarket and ultramodern, is a bastion of Taiwan's wonderfully rick heritage. Its beauty lies in its blend of Chinese culture with a curious fusion of Japanese and Southeast Asian influences.
