Let’s book cheap flights to Taiwan to start exploring new land. Taiwan is an island in Eastern Asia with diverse culture mixed between traditional Chinese culture, Japanese culture, belief of Confucianism and modern color from the West.

Taiwan is a famous island in North East Asia, consisting of Taiwan Island and 4 smaller islands such as Penghu Archipelago, Green Island, Xiaoliuqiu and Guishan Island. The area of Taiwan is quite small with 35,883 square kilometers and a coastline of over 1,813km long. Taiwan borders the Philippines Sea to the east, Luzon Strait of the Philippines to the south, the South China Sea to the southwest and the East China Sea to the north.

Taiwan topography has a clear contrast, 2/3 area is mostly rugged mountains running from the north to the south, while the west is the plain and is inhabited mainly by people of Taiwan. Taiwan has five mountains with the height of more than 3,500m and Ngoc Son Mountain - the highest mountain in Taiwan with the altitude of 3,952m above the sea level. As Taiwan Island has long coastline and high mountain ranges, its climate is mainly characterized by the ocean climate, and it often changes seasonally in the northern area and the surrounding mountainous region. However, in the south of the island, the climate features the tropical belt climate zone. Rainy season occurs mostly from May to June. From July to October, Taiwan often appears tropical storms. The north of Taiwan frequently appears cloudy in year because this area is located in the East China Sea.
