The small island of Taiwan has impressively immense cultural heritage, diverse traditions, incredible landscapes, and markets full of mouthwatering dishes. When you're hiking or biking in the mountains, you wouldn't know you're in one of the most densely populated places on Earth. But when you're partying around the clock in the bustling capital of Taipei, you'll see that crowds no doubt carved out this cosmopolitan city and all the thriving culture that comes with it. Regardless of whether you're drawn to the city life or the countryside, hotels in Taiwan will put you in the middle of an island you won't soon forget.
Hotels in Taipei, at the north of the island, are a great place to start your journey. Enjoy the electric nightlife in the Taiwanese capital, the world's fourth tallest skyscraper, and beautiful nearby beaches. Head to the hills overlooking the city in Yangmingshan National Park, which offers excellent views of the sprawl. From here, travel through the scenic lakes and mountainous terrain of central Taiwan, a veritable gold mine for national parks. While you're here, don't miss Sun Moon Lake. The island's largest lake is a serene, sparkling body of water amidst the hills. In fact, crossing the central mountains is the only way to get to isolated eastern Taiwan, a region characterized by intense natural beauty—like the Taroko Gorge—and a high concentration of aboriginal people in the city of Taitung. Southwestern Taiwan is home to those picture-perfect, palm-lined beaches, and Taiwan hotels here experience an enviable climate. This region is also home to the city of Tainan—the oldest city in Taiwan, noted for its historic buildings and prominence as a former capital.
Isolated, wild landscapes side-by-side with some of the world's most crowded cities makes for an intriguing juxtaposition on the island of Taiwan.
