As holidaymakers become more discerning and adventurous on their vacation choices, tourists are broadening their horizons and opening their minds to new possibilities.

New, more exotic destinations and sensory adventures are over taking a two-week quick hit of sun and sand, which, for many, is becoming rather passé.

That said, some far-flung destinations remain largely undiscovered.

Taiwan being one of them, and arguably still one of Asia’s best kept-secrets.

Famed for its technological and commercial prowess, it’s a joy to see such modern day commodities happily sitting side by side with ancient traditions and rhythms.

Religion plays a big part of daily life in Taiwan.

For the most part, Taiwan’s population follows Taoism and Buddhism although other faiths are represented, and respected.

Taiwan is highly tolerant of other religious practices and simply exudes peace and spirituality.
