Lion's Head Mountain: A hike to recall the PoW camp
Hikers heading up the winding mountain road en route to the popular peak of Lion's Head Mountain (獅頭山), high above the southern Taipei suburb of Xindian (新店), could be forgiven for missing an inconspicuous marble tablet nestling in the undergrowth beside the road.

Taiyao Waterfall: An intriguing, unknown scenic wonder in Hsinchu County

Admire ancient Chinese landscaping art at the Lin Family Garden in Banciao

Hiking to a Japanese-built fort on Mt. Li Dong
When it comes to scenic beauty, Taiwan offers everything from remote alpine summits that take a week's hard trekking to reach to grassy, roadside slopes made for a blanket picnic; a fantastic variety of natural beauty of a rare order can be found squashed into this small island if you know where to look.
