DETAILED DESCRIPTION

Nicknamed the “Ilha Formosa” or the “beautiful island” by Portuguese sailors in the 16th century, Taiwan is a stunning tropical and mountainous island. The small island has a surprisingly large economic presence in the world’s financial realm. Venture outside of the capital city of Taipei and travel into the off-the-radar fascinating areas of Zuoying and Tainan. This 5-day Discovering Historical Taiwan itinerary will show you a entire new side to the island. 

DAY-TO-DAY

The Dutch colonial Fort Provintia is a worth visiting as well. Return to the Shangri-La to relax for the evening.
