Jiajiuliao Trail: A walk in the woods
Thanks to the Taiwanese government, which has put a great deal of effort and money into promoting Taiwan's natural splendor over the past few years, it's no longer a great secret that the island is a veritable paradise for outdoor lovers in general, and for walkers in particular.

Truly Taiwan's Treasure: Taitung, pure and natural
Taitung's attractions should be tasted at leisure, and from pristine mountains and streams, aboriginal gatherings, sacred spots and hotsprings, there are many things to guarantee return trips to this paradisiacal place.

Chiayi's Tropic of Cancer landmark
Anyone who's driven along the main road between Tainan County (台南縣) and Chiayi City (嘉義市) will have seen it. If you've taken the train -- the slower conventional train that is, not the high-speed railway -- between Chiayi and points south, you'll likely have noticed it. It looks somewhat like a water tower, but with windows.

Exploring the Mysterious Feitsui Reservoir
Glimpses of its emerald surface are one of the highlights of the trip along the old Taipei to Ilan highway (now blissfully quiet, since most traffic between the two counties takes the new highway through the 13 kilometer-long Shueshan Tunnel), yet it's only standing on the bank of this huge, serpentine expanse of water that its great scenic beauty can finally be enjoyed to the full.

Walking to Dongshige Old Trail in Pingsi
About half an hour after leaving Pingsi High School, the trail enters a clearing, and several abandoned buildings and a fenced-off mine shaft entrance lie beside the path.

Lugang: A taste of bygone times
A chilly breeze from off the coast swept through the streets of the small town, but the sky was still blue with only a few wispy clouds in it. Located just an hour from Taichung and about three hours from Taipei, the quaint town of Lugang (鹿港) makes a good destination for a winter day trip, both because of its historical sites and because of its cheap, delectable cuisine.
 
Enjoying hot springs in Dongpu
Nantou may be the only completely landlocked county in Taiwan but the beauty of its natural features and landscapes definitely does not lag behind the rest of the island.

On the trail of Taiwan's Confucius
Everyone in Taiwan knows the story of Koxinga (鄭成功), the Ming Dynasty loyalist who fled to the island from the Chinese mainland, and defeated the Dutchmen then ruling Tainan (台南) and its hinterland.

Walking the Bamboo Shoot Path: Yuanliu Old Trail
Organic fruit, vegetables and what-not are so widely available these days that it's easy to forget that in days gone by, everything we ate was natural and pesticide--free, and that we didn't have to pay a premium for the privilege of eating the unadulterated stuff.

The Mangrove Forest of Hongmaogang
The little Hsinchu (新竹) County settlement of Hongmaogang (紅毛港) consists of little more than a police station, a couple of houses and (on weekends) a line of snack stalls facing the Taiwan Strait.

A gourmand's visit to Meinong
The lepidopteran inhabitants of the Yellow Butterfly Valley have yet to emerge, you already have a hand-painted oil-paper parasol, and disused tobacco-curing barns hold no interest for you.
 
Striking gold in Jin Gua Shi
Of all the 117 elements listed in the periodic table, gold is perhaps the most elusive and alluring compound of all, dazzling men and women alike throughout the ages.

Dulishan and its amazing spiral railway
Just like that newer arrival on the scene in Taiwan, the High Speed Railway, Alishan(阿里山) Mountain Railway is as much a tourist attraction as a practical method of transport.

Bizitou: A botanical garden in Chiayi's backstreets
Bizitou Botanical Garden (埤仔頭植物園) isn't the only botanical garden in Chiayi City (嘉義市). There's another in the city's sprawling and eponymous park, some kilometers to the southeast.

The lost gold mines of Yangmingshan
In a remote spot deep in the northern slopes of Yangmingshan National Park (陽明山國家公園), bored into the steep, forest-covered slopes, is a black hole, half covered in a thick layer of ferns which thrive in this cool, often foggy environment.
