Taiwan was recently named by U.K.-based travel guidebook publisher Rough Guides as
one of the top 10 countries to visit in 2017, earning plaudits for its varied attractions, vibrant nightlife and unique cultural landscape.
One of only two Asian countries included on the list along with India, Taiwan was lauded by Rough Guides for its relaxing hot springs, modern architecture and ancient temples. The publisher also noted that visitors can quickly travel between Taiwan’s ities and diverse natural environments, ranging from soaring forests and mountains to sunny sub-tropical shores, on the cutting-edge high-speed rail network.
“Taiwan is only just beginning to garner the attention it has always deserved. Cosmopolitan Taipei was named World Design Capital last year, highlighting its pioneering creative scene, new wave cafes and all-round sophisticated city life, while the country’s cuisine and night markets remain world renowned,” the company said.
