DETAILED DESCRIPTION

Explore this oft-overpassed island, located off the southern mainland of China with this exciting 6-day luxury Taiwan itinerary. Experience the juxtaposition of ancient temples and towering skyscrapers on the age-old landscape. Taipei is a cultural epicenter with a unique lifestyle. Located on the “ring of fire,” relax in a soothing natural hot spring, while absorbing the stunning scenery. 

DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Taipei

Begin your luxury vacation in Taiwan’s largest city, Taipei. Check in to one of our two recommended luxury hotels, either Villa 32, or W Hotel. Grab some amazing deals as you shop in Ximending - the first pedestrian zone in Taipei. Also known as Ximen Red House, there are street performers and excitement everywhere. At night, visit the Shilin Night Market - the most famous and largest night market in the bustling city. Sample traditional Taiwanese ribs, sausages and sticky rice in the food section of the market before snagging more discounted souvenirs and goodies. 

DAY 2: Taipei

Start your day by perusing the antique National Palace Museum. See the vast collection that was reclaimed after being liberated from China. With nearly 700,000 works of art, you will have plenty to enjoy. Next, view religious life at the beautiful, historic Longshan Temple. Vibrant red arched roofs and gold plating make this temple a rare gem. Top off the cultured day by stepping into modern times at MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) in an important Japanese-era building. 

DAY 3: Taipei

On your final day in Taipei, stroll in the massive forested national park, Yangmingshan. Smell the fresh florals in the park’s many flower gardens.  After stretching your legs, rest them in Wulai’s hot springs. Enjoy the natural pools in the aboriginal village. Return for your final night in your luxury Taipei hotel.

DAY 4: Sun Moon Lake

Leaving Taipei, travel to the home of the Thao tribe, and explore the Sun Moon Lake. This is the largest body of water in Taiwan. Settle in to your luxury room at The Lalu, before taking a boat tour from the Shueishe Wharf, where you can snap a breathtaking picture of the incredible lake surrounded by natural greenery. End the day at a traditional tea factory sampling the different Taiwanese flavors. 

DAY 5: Sun Moon Lake

Marvel at the view of Sun Moon Lake as you ride in a cable car on the Ropeway. Continue on to visit the Wenwu Temple, located on the shoulder of the mountain and on Sun Moon Lake. Rebuilt after the 1999 earthquake, the classic temple is in pristine condition. Next, marvel at the vast amount of marble at Taroko Gorge. After checking in to your luxury room at Silks Place, stretch your legs and climb to the top of the gorge for a stunning view of the natural scenery below. 

DAY 6: Taroko Gorge

Take your adventure to the next level as you river trace in the Taroko Gorge. Truly the best way to enjoy the view, you will combine climbing and hiking in the picturesque (and safe) environment. Visit the Changchun Shrine, or the Eternal Spring Shrine. The shrine commemorates the 212 construction workers who died building the Central Cross-Island Highway. Put on your waterproof gear when you visit the Shuilian Cave, or the Water Curtain Cave. Brought to fame by the novel, Journey to the West, this is where the main character sought enlightenment. Before your journey ends, hike the Shakadang Trail, or Mysterious Valley Trail, built along the river’s edge, and get one last glimpse of the postcard-perfect views. 

DAY 7: Departure

Spend the morning at your own leisure, enjoying the views offered by Taroko Gorge. Check out and transfer back to Taipei for your departing flight.
