Additional Information

Find more Taiwan information on the sites listed below.

Taiwan is situated in the western Pacific about 160 km (100 miles) off the southeastern coast of the Chinese mainland. Positioned midway between Korea and Japan to the north and Hong Kong and the Philippines to the South, Taiwan is a convenient gateway to Asia for travellers coming from around the world.

About two thirds of the island is covered with lush forested mountains. Jade Mountain at 3952 metres above sea level is the tallest peak in Taiwan, indeed the highest mountain in northeast Asia. The island's natural beauty includes sun-splashed beaches and tranquil lakes, gushing waterfalls and soothing hot springs plus an exotic array of tropical flora and fauna. With an annual rainfall of more than 1500 mm the island ranks as one of the most agriculturally productive places in all of Asia. The wettest month is June.
