ITINERARY 2

Taipei - Upbeat, profoundly liveable and superbly located, Taiwan's capital is a thrill to explore on foot. If you arrive early, be sure to get out and about and then head off to the Ningxia Night Market for dinner.

Tainan - It’s a two-hour journey to the island’s oldest city, widely regarded as the food capital of the south. Begin your day with a tasting walk along the ancient and famed Anping Old Street.

Nantou - Your day begins with a visit to Chikan Lou, also known as Chikan Tower or Fort Provincia, one of the most important historic sites in Taiwan. Chinese-style towers sit atop a foundation initially built by Dutch colonials, creating a unique hybrid structure surrounded by elegant lawns and koi ponds. After this peaceful and contemplative visit, change gears as you enter the Hayashi Department Store – a beloved multi-story shopping centre. 

Sun Moon Lake & Taichung - This area is an excellent backdrop for cycling, so set out on a bike ride around Sun Moon Lake, taking in the full beauty of the lake and its surrounding green hills. Afterward, relax with a picnic lunch made with quality, local produce.

Yilan - Head out of town this morning to a restaurant in Taoyuan and learn to make xiao long bao (steam soup dumplings) in a hands-on cooking class.
