Take the whole family to Taiwan for an adventure packed with engaging hands-on activities, exotic fun snack foods, historic and culturally significant sites, and bustling night markets that stimulate all the senses. Taiwan is a small island nation with a unique culture shaped by its intertwined history with China and Japan and the existing aborigines. Its friendly people, modern cities and dramatic mountainous terrain makes Taiwan ideal for families seeking a trip with entertainment and education that imparts valuable lessons and lasting memories. In the capital city of Taipei, taste and make iconic pineapple cakes, see the world’s largest damper in action, get a lesson on Taiwan and China’s joint history at the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall. Release sky lanterns, challenge your imagination with rock formations, and see the labyrinthine village that inspired Ghibli Studio’s acclaimed Spirited Away. Head south to Taichung and see a giant squid, make bubble tea where it first started, and eat ice cream at an ophthalmic hospital where you can learn about the Japanese occupation and how it shaped modern day Taiwan. Discover Taiwan’s aboriginal culture at one of the nation’s most beautiful scenic areas, Sun Moon Lake. In the coastal Kaohsiung, engage in the flourishing southern Hakka culture by painting on paper umbrellas and pounding traditional tea, and learn how pineapples grow and pickle them, too. Who said learning couldn’t be fun?
