Hidden Treasure of Asia – Find Your Treasure in Taiwan

Overview

Taiwan is one of the islands with the most high mountains in the world. Thanks to a rate of over 60% forest coverage and the diverse climate change of the tropical, warm, and temperate zones, this island boasts a very rich biodiversity. Due to the differences in geographical environment, ethnic culture has also developed a unique lifestyle of symbiosis, coexistence, and the common good. It has become Taiwan’s fascinating and precious treasure.
