Places of Interest

Most teachers live and work in only one place in Taiwan. They will use weekends, public holidays, and some annual leave to explore many of the spectacular cultural, natural, and historical attractions that abound in Taiwan. The island's size makes most places within reach from anywhere else on the island, but obviously, the closer you are to certain places, the more convenient they become. Follow the links below to learn more about Taiwan's must-see attractions.
