Visit Taiwan for a different experience of China. This large, subtropical, Pacific island has mountainous scenery and highly-developed cities. A convenient transport network provides easy access to Taiwan's national parks, cultural and historic sights, and iconic city attractions.
To visit Taiwan (the Republic of China, or ROC), you will probably not need a visa, unlike the visa policy for Chinese Mainland (the People's Republic of China, or PRC). Citizens of the USA, the EU, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and several other countries are entitled to 90-day visa-free entry, similar to Hong Kong's liberal visa policy.

- Taroko Gorge — a marble-walled canyon with aboriginal tribes, shrines and temples, mountain hiking, and Taiwanese jade manufacture.
