The island country of Taiwan delivers its own flavor of Asia as a fusion of Chinese and Japanese heritage and colonization by the Portuguese, Spanish and Dutch that left their mark in numerous places around the island. Known as Formosa which means Beautiful Island by the Portuguese, Taiwan easily lives up to its name. It hosts large modern metropolises seamlessly with sleepy mountain villages. Huge swaths of the country are virtually untouched and protected as national parks featuring rugged mountains and cliffs.
