Encounters between Disparate Cultures
Taiwan, located on the shipping line of East Asia, has been a location where merchants from different countries meet and trade since the 16th century, making it a melting pot of many exotic cultures. People from Asia and Europe arrived in Taiwan due to trade, shipping disasters or political problems at home. They came in contact and interacted with local inhabitants, thus enriching the diversity of Taiwanese culture. Notable encounters between different cultures took place in Taiwan with the arrival of Chinese, Japanese, Dutch, Spanish and British people on the island.
