The Story of Taiwan

Map:The Story of Taiwan
Taiwan is an island of convergence in the Western Pacific. It is this location where the Asian Continent converges with the Pacific, and where Eurasian Plate meets the Philippine Sea Plate. Ships at sea also converge here. Taiwan is an island with many different ecologies, where mountains sit by deep oceans, while cool forests are beside tropical ones. Within half an hour it is possible to move between the mountain, sea, cool and tropical zones. Since antiquity, people of different ethnicities and nationalities have also been attracted to Taiwan, thereby creating a fusion of various languages, cuisines and cultures. Together, these factors represent the island’s diverse natural and cultural landscapes, producing the varied and harmonious story of Taiwan.
