Travel Style Travel Style Relaxed A lot of free time, with very few inclusions. Ideal for independent and/or low-key travelers and cruisers.
Full on For those looking to maximize their sight seeing time. You thrive on a packed day’s schedule from 8 am to 6pm, with some (but limited) free time. Most activities and meals included.
Mixed You will have solid amounts of both free time and structured time with some activities and meals included.

Itinerary Focus

Trip Type Trip Type Group Tour Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
Small Group Tour Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.
River Cruise These vessels are smaller than most ocean cruisers, limiting which amenties are available. Passenger counts can vary. One of the biggest advantages of a river cruise is the ability to dock at smaller ports and local villages.
Small Ship Cruise Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500. The primary purpose of these trips is to spend time off the vessel in local ports (e.g. Mediterranean) or experiencing nature (e.g Galapagos or Antarctica). Cabins can vary from budget to luxury.
Private Guided Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.
Self Guided / Independent Tour A travel company plans your itinerary and arranges all the logistics including lodging, local activities, and transportantion. You have the flexibility of a solo trip while still getting the convience and time savings of expert planning. Get 90% of the benefits of a tour, without a guide.
Vacation / Holiday Package Similar to a self guided tour, this usually involves a home base, such as a hotel or resort, with packaged activities and day tours as a part of the stay.
Large Ship Cruise This is the "floating city" experience, with multiple ways to enjoy your vacation aboard the ship as much as on land. Ships are multiple floors, provide several activities, culinary, and shopping options. They often make fewer stops and have less time available for shore excursions.

Lodging Level Lodging Level Camping Typically involves most nights sleeping in tents (sometimes permanent tented sites) or in rustic cabins and lodges.
Basic - 2 star You'll stay in no-frills, but clean and comfortable, hotels or guesthouses. A 'Basic' trip might also involve a few nights of camping.
Value - 3 star Mid-range budget with accommodations ranging from comfortable lodges, guesthouses, and homestays to three star hotels.
Premium - 4 star 3 to 4 star western hotel equivalents. While not all lodging will be 'luxury' they will be quite comfortable by western standards.
Luxury - 5 star The highest level of comfort and service. All accomodations are in four or five star hotels, boutique lodges or high-end homestays.

Taiwan Tours and Travel Guide

Taiwan Attractions & Landmarks Guide

A small island nation with a complicated history, Taiwan is a place to discover beneath the politics. Boasting a total of nine beautiful National Parks, and several bustling night markets, there is much to see and do.

Although officially still a part of the People's Republic of China, this is a hotly debated topic. Taiwan has it's own government, constitution, and cultural values, an evolution of the Republic of China which reinstated there after the cultural revolution in mainland China. Diverse backgrounds contribute to a diverse culture, making Taiwan a richly fascinating place to visit.

Taipei - An Urban Introduction to Taiwan

Any tour to Taiwan will likely start in the bustling capital city of Taipei. This international city is home to ‘Taipei 101,’ the world’s fifth tallest building. Other architectural and cultural wonders include the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial, National Palace Museum, and several buddhist temples. All are easily visited in day tour around Taipei, which is included on most multi day tours to Taiwan.

While boasting dozens of skyscrapers and miles of concrete, nature is not far beyond the borders of the inner city. There are numerous hot springs to explore on the outskirts of Taipei, either as part of your tour or as an independent activity during free time. Be sure to enquire around proper etiquette if enjoying the springs, as this might differ from your home country. 

Natural Wonders in Taiwan

Taiwan is a nature lover’s paradise, with multiple national parks on the island. One of the most well known, and perhaps most striking, is Taroko Gorge National Park. A visit to this park is included on many Taiwan tour itineraries due to its relative proximity to Taipei. Popular activities, either included on your tour or optional, are hiking, rafting, and walking among the marble studded gorge. There is also a popular music festival that is hosted each year in the park.

Sun Moon Lake, the largest body of water in Taiwan, is also quite popular with tourists as well as locals. If you look closely enough, the east side of the lake resembles a sun while the west side resembles a moon - hence the name. Many tours of Taiwan include walking or cycling excursions by the lake, with picturesque lunch stops along the way.

Alishan National Park is also among one of the most visited national parks in Taiwan. Located in a mountainous region, the park offers a serene setting for hiking and walking among giant red Taiwanese cypress trees and quaint tea plantations. There is also an old narrow gauge railway, dating back to 1912, that runs through the park.

Taiwan Monasteries & Temples

More than ⅓ of Taiwan’s population are Buddhist and this is displayed through the country’s many shrines and temples. While Taipei features temples such as the Lungshan, dating back to the 1700’s, Tainan, the cultural capital of Taiwan, is home to many more. 

Literally thousands of temples dot the landscapes of this coastal city, including those devoted to Buddhism and Taoism. If you enjoy visiting cultural shrines, choose your itinerary accordingly, ensuring a day or two is spent exploring Tainan’s culturally-rich heritage.
