Amadeus Taiwan (Taipei)

About Taiwan

Situated some 180 kilometres off the south-eastern coast of mainland China, Taiwan is a large island nation with a tropical climate and rainy seasons during the southwest monsoon (June to August). The East China Sea lies to the north, the Philippine Sea to the east, the Bashi Channel of the Luzon Strait directly to the south, and the South China Sea to the southwest. The shape of the main island of Taiwan is similar to a sweet potato seen in a south-to-north direction, and some Taiwanese often call themselves "children of the Sweet Potato." The island of Taiwan was mainly inhabited by Taiwanese aborigines until the Age of Discovery in the 17th century, when the Dutch and Spanish began establishing settlements. This was followed by the immigration of Han Chinese which makes up most the population today.

Mandarin is the official national language and is spoken by the vast majority of people there and as in Hong Kong and Macau traditional Chinese is used as the writing system. Taiwan’s culture is a hybrid blend of various sources, incorporating elements of traditional Chinese culture, attributable to the historical and ancestry origin of the majority of its current residents, Japanese culture, traditional Confucianist beliefs, and increasingly Western values.

Taiwan’s capital, Taipei City is situated on the Tamsui River in an ancient lakebed between two narrow valleys. Taipei is the political, economic, and cultural centre of Taiwan. The city is connected with the rest of the country via high-speed rail, highways, airports, and bus lines. The city is served by two airports – Taipei Songshan and Taiwan Taoyuan. As the capital of Taiwan, Taipei is a vibrant blend of traditional culture and cosmopolitan life. Taipei is the political, economic, educational and recreational centre of the country, offering an array of significant cultural sights with a population of 2.7 million people.
