An incredible network of trains link the bustling Taipei with Taiwan’s national parks and historic towns. From the capital take an excursion on the scenic 8-mile Pingxi Line past mountain cliffs and waterfalls, stopping at small traditional mining towns along the way.
To explore the country’s stunningly beautiful mountainous interior, take the wonderful tilting Taroko Express to Taroko Gorge as well as a cruise on Taiwan’s most famous beauty spot, Sun Moon Lake. Lying just 2 kms off the coast of China, this tour also explores the rarely visited and historically important Kinmen Island, where you find monuments glorifying Taiwan’s military history against mainland China.
