Taiwan as a tour and holiday destination
Officially deemed to be part of the Republic of China, the island of Taiwan, formerly known as Formosa, is the fourth largest island in the world. Taiwan’s most popular tourist destination is the city of Taipei which serves as the central location for political and economic affairs. The world’s 19th largest economy occupies 35,000 kilometres of land with terrain ranging from the rugged Yu-Shan/Jade Mountain to the Chiana Plains. Prior to 2010, Taiwan’s Taipei 101 building was the tallest structure in the world.
