Taipei

Though peopled by native groups for millennia Taipei proper was not founded until the early 1700's. Settled primarily by waves of migrants from mainland China Taipei burst into the international limelight in late 1949 when Chiang Kai Shek and the Nationalist China government fled the mainland and made it the provisional government of the Republic of China. Bustling with masses of people from all over Taiwan and mainland China, Taipei is the epicentre of the Taiwan economic miracle. Taipei is an international travel hub, vibrant modern city and boasts a stimulating array of dining options, traditional temples and markets. With Taiwan itself being about the same size as Belgium Taipei is also the perfect base from which to explore some of the rural culture and natural beauty of this unique island.
