Day 3: A day in Taipei

Nestled in a basin surrounded by mountains, 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 rich heritage. Begin your explorations at the National Palace Museum, home to the world’s largest and finest collection of Chinese art and artefacts, and the Martyrs’ Shine.

Day 4: Scenic Sun Moon Lake

Depart Taipei to journey towards the heart of the island to what is arguably Taiwan’s most scenic spot – Sun Moon Lake. Visit the Wen Wu Temple before embarking on a motorboat cruise around the lake for picture perfect views of the area’s beautiful landscapes.

Day 5: Tea Plantation

Begin today with a visit to a famous tea farm to discover all about the process of tea growth and production before taking the cable car to Formosan Cultural Village. There will also be some time at leisure, with the option of biking on trails around Sun Moon Lake, listed as one of the 10 most beautiful places to cycle in the world.

Day 6: Discover Tainan

Depart Sun Moon Lake and travel to Tainan. Taiwan’s oldest city and capital until 1887 when Taipei took over, Tainan was originally established as a trading port by the Dutch East India Company. It is renowned for its preservation of traditions and rich folk culture, and you’ll start exploring at the Chikan Tower and Confucius Temple.

Day 7: Exploring Kaohsiung

Head south to the port city of Kaohsiung where you’ll admire the Dragon & Tiger Tower and the Spring & Autumn Pavilion before paying a visit to Taiwan’s largest monastery, Foguanshan. Lunch here will be a vegetarian feast, before you stroll over to the main shrine, the Buddhist Museum and Great Buddha Land, where you’ll find a 36-metre Buddha watching over a garden of many smaller Buddhas.

Day 8: Visit Kenting National Park

Travel over to the beach resort of Kenting, gateway to the beautiful Kenting National Park. Consisting of a range of landscapes – low mountains, rolling hills, cliffs and deserts, all fringed by excellent beaches and helped along by a balmy tropical climate, Kenting is home to a diverse range of flora and fauna.

Day 9: Discover Sheding National Park

Spend the morning amongst the rock formations and lush greenery of Sheding Nature Park with a pause to take in the ocean views at Oluanpi Lighthouse. The rest of the day is at leisure.

Day 10: Ocean drive to Taitung

Depart Kenting and drive along the beautiful east coast to Taitung, admiring the ocean views throughout the journey. Continue to Chihpen, famous for its hot springs. On arrival, your afternoon will be free to relax and bathe in the thermal waters at your hotel. Tonight’s dinner will be accompanied by a performance of traditional music and dance.

Day 11: Head to Taroko

Travel northwards to Hualien, the gateway to the magnificent Taroko National Park. En route there will be a series of stops including Donghe, where you may spot wild monkeys, and the scenic Cisingtan Lake, where you can head out on an optional bike ride on the lakeshore.

Day 12: Explore Taroko National Park

Encompassing sea cliffs, soaring peaks and a famously picturesque gorge, Taroko National Park is home to a huge diversity of features and habitats and shelters a great range of plant and animal species. Today your visits will include the Gorge Gateway, the Eternal Spring Shrine and Swallow Grotto and you can enjoy a leisurely walk through the beautiful landscapes.

Day 13: Return to Taipei

Take a photo stop at Cingshuei Cliff for beautiful views and visit the Kavalan Whisky Distillery, where a few tastings will be in order. Return to Taipei via Luodong by highspeed rail and then enjoy a farewell dinner, the perfect opportunity to reflect on your adventures with your fellow passengers.
