Located off the southeast coast of the Asian continent at the western edge of the Pacific Ocean, between Japan and the Philippines and right in the center of the East-Asian island arc, Taiwan forms a vital line of communication in the Asia-Pacific region. It covers an area of approximately 36,000 square kilometers and is longer than it is wide. Two-thirds of the total area is covered by forested mountains and the remaining area consists of hilly country, plateaus and highlands, coastal plains, and basins. The Central Mountain Range stretches along the entire country from north to south, thus forming a natural line of demarcation for rivers on the eastern and western sides of the island. On the west side, lies the Yushan Range with its main peak reaching 3,952 meters, the highest mountain peak in northeast Asia.

Asia has always been a paradise for food lovers in their quest for different tastes and flavors. Some dishes are famous worldwide but Asian food abroad and Asian food in Asian countries is never the same thing. Every region has its specialties, local dishes or snacks that you would never see in restaurants in foreign countries. So while you are in Taiwan, make sure you try some of the popular Taiwanese food.

You will have the chance to make your own ice cream at Flying Cow Ranch in the first day of the vacation. Experience Taiwanese tea culture and try making your own tea on the second day. On the fourth day, you will pick and eat mouthwatering seasonal fruit and enjoy local Taiwanese cuisine on Yongkang Street, where snack foods, famous dishes, and eateries can be found in one convenient place.
