Taiwan is a rich country as far as the sightseeing is to be considered. There are so many attractive places which would surely keep every visitor interested. Let us start with the breathtaking mountain ranges. Central mountain range here is very much popular because it has more than 200 peaks rising above the 3000
meters mark. Of course it is no small thing to have a mountain range with so many peaks rising above a certain level.
Moving out from the spiritual side, one can snorkel or surf around the beautiful coastlines of Taiwan. Of course these trips to the coastlines for surfing, etc should be properly scheduled keeping in mind oneís safety and the islandís norms. These sandy and cool beaches would give utmost relaxation for any visitor. One just has to put their feet in the waters flowing in the coastlines and enjoy the sensation.
Follow on then to the colorful festive of Taiwan. Here in the festival celebrations, one can find lovely fireworks doing rounds, lions dancing and a parade following. Now that is some real entertainment. After entertaining oneself, they can move on to the cuisines which are again traditionally built in Chinese style and are regional. Here one can find the best Chinese food which has no comparison with and other food item in the whole world. In short, the food made here is really delicious. Another attraction here is the Taiwanese Oolong tea. This tea is found in every traditional tea house in Taiwan.
Having fed oneself, one should move around the language schools which are only in big cities and learn the beautiful language of the Mandarin Chinese or Taiwanese. In fact here one with good English speaking skills can even teach English in this language schools and enjoy their experiences.
More attractions can be lined up. Such as the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall which is a dedication to Chiang Kai-shek who was the former president of the Republic of China. Next is the National Concert Hall Performances which is just across the National Theater. Then we can talk about the Peitou Folk Art Museum which is a museum which was built actually in the early 1990ís as a Japanese military officers' club. Another famous museum here is the Peitou Hot Spring Museum which was built by the Taipei government in 1913. Then one can look out for the Renegade Province Ultimate Frisbee which is often used for the playerís practicing sessions for national and international events.
Move downtown here in Taipei and one can find the Shihlin Night Market which seems to be like a never closing market. Although itís not the only market here in Taipei, still is really popular with the tourists.
Then there is a zoo here which is the Taipei City Zoo which was earlier located inside the city limits but is now moved. This zoo was earlier located just across the Taipei Fine Arts Museum which has a collection of one of the best and creative sculptures of all. Then there is the Tamshui Ferry Terminal. This terminal is located in Tanshui Town here in Taiwan.
Another memorable point here is the Martyrs' Shrine. This is popular not only because it is a shrine for the martyrs but another interesting fact is that it is built in Taipei in a leafy suburb. Of course it is one of the most important places to be at. The next place would be the National Taiwan Democracy Memorial Hall. This is a really lovely place. Everything is so very beautiful about it. As a monument, its entrance gate is well structured. Well surely the Chinese have put in their heart to model this monument perfectly. There are many other memorials such as the Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall, Taipei Fine Arts Museum, etc.
Moving from monuments, we look at the Yangming Park. This park is basically to give one relaxation from the polluted, hectic and overcrowded places. Located in Taipei, one can relax and take a round in a bus for a short distance. Even during the summer time, it can be termed as a great escape as one can take time off from the regular hot and humid climatic conditions.
