Taiwan is one of the few places on earth where ancient religious and cultural practices still thrive in an overwhelmingly modernist landscape. This juxtaposition is expressed most clearly in Taipei, where futuristic marvels like Taipei 101 – still the second-largest building in the world – share the city with thronged, incense-fogged temples. The sharp contrast between old and new is apparent elsewhere too, with the corridor of factories and cities on the west coast offset by the indigenous communities that still form an integral part of day-to-day life.

The mix of different influences that makes up modern Taiwan is also neatly showcased by the island’s cuisine – a lip-smacking blend of Chinese, Japanese and aboriginal fare. Like many aspects of life here though, its full context only becomes really apparent when you look at the island’s history. Japan ruled for five decades, following which – in 1949 – supporters and soldiers of the Chinese Nationalist Party fled here after being defeated by the forces of Chairman Mao in the Chinese Civil War. To this day, Taiwan remains a product of this period – a maverick state still viewed with uneasiness by Beijing.

But history buff or no history buff, there’s much to enjoy here for the casual traveller. In general terms it’s a safe, hospitable destination, free of much of the overwhelming scale that can make China itself daunting for some tourists. That’s not to say Taiwan lacks the potential for independent adventure, of course – far from it – but in many ways it’s a more straightforward travel prospect than the mainland.

台湾是世界上少数几个地方,其中古老的宗教和文化习俗仍然在蓬勃发展的现代绝大多数的景观之一。这个并列表达最清楚在台北,在那里未来的奇迹像台北101 - 仍然是世界第二大建筑 - 分享城市人头攒动,香火灰化的寺庙。新旧之间的鲜明对比是明显的其他地方也设有工厂和城市在西海岸的走廊由土著社区仍然构成的一天到一天的生活的一个组成部分抵消。

中国人,日本人和原住民票价的唇嫌交融 - 不同的影响的组合,构成了现代台湾也整齐地岛上的美食展示。喜欢这里的生活,虽然在许多方面,它的完整的上下文,当你在岛上的历史才成为真正显现出来。日本统治五十年,随后 - 在1949年 - 支持者和中国国民党的士兵逃到这里的中国内战被击败毛主席的力量之后。为了这一天,台湾仍然是这一时期的产物 - 与不安北京一个特立独行的状态依然看。

但历史爱好者或没有历史爱好者,还有很多的享受这里的休闲旅客。总的来说这是一个安全,热情好客的目的地多铺天盖地的规模,免费,可以使中国自身艰巨的部分游客。这并不是说台湾缺乏,当然对于独立冒险的可能性, - 远非如此 - 但在许多方面,它是一个更简单的旅游前景比大陆。
