If not, take a cultural trip over to Chinese Imperial Art at the National Palace or head over to Kaohsiung City, to visit the Fo Guang Shan Buddha Memorial Center.
For adventurers, you can crisscross mountains on colonial-era hiking trials or to cycle on the highway of Taiwan with Blue Pacific on one side and greenery on the other.
Interesting Etiquette: #1 – Business cards should be printed in English on one side and Chinese on the other. Make sure that the Chinese side uses “classical” characters, the written form of Chinese used in Taiwan, and not “simplified” characters, which are used in the People’s Republic of China.
