The Best of Taiwan

Balanced perfectly between the East and South China Sea, Taiwan is undoubtedly proof that big things can come in small packages. Taiwan is a beautifully captivating island and a Black Tomato favourite that effortlessly provides more than enough reasons to visit. A kaleidoscope of colour courtesy of its countless festivals, rich cuisine and ornate temples and home to the ultimate contrast of landscapes in capital city, Taipei, with its city skyscrapers enveloped by humid rainforest hills. Get lost in the bustling night markets of Taipei, Tainan and Kaohsiung, and spend the following morning inhaling the aromas and learning the traditions of Taiwan's tea culture. Leave the neon lights behind as you head inland to Sun Moon Lake or to the coast to Kenting National Park and islands of the Penghu Archipelago. Any chance we can squeeze in your suitcase?
