Taiwan hotels — where to stay

You will leave Taiwan with a settled intention to return there, especially if you had only three or four days for the first trip. However, even in such a short time you can manage to see different parts of the island of Formosa – thus Taiwan was named for his wondrous natural beauty. You can cross the whole territory from north to south for a half hour by the Shinkansen high-speed train. The railway line THSR connects the capital of Taipei with the city of Kaohsiung. Transport infrastructure in Taiwan is developed the best way possible. Intercity buses are comparable in comfort to the air cabins of business class. You will hardly need a car and journeys on the picturesque roads, avoiding highways, of course, by scooter are very popular. For a low-cost stay you can choose hostels because even accommodation in three star hotels in Taiwan can not be called cheap. Although some places deserve exceptions. It is better to admire the Sun and Moon Lakes (District Nantou) from windows of luxurious hotels on the coast: The Crystal Resort Sun Moon Lake, Hotel Del Lago. read more

What to do and what to see
Along with the grand memorials erected in honor of former government officials, one of the main attractions of the capital is the skyscraper Taipei 101. Shopping center occupies its lower floors and you can admire the panorama of the city from open and closed viewing platforms on the top floors. Ximending pedestrian zone is great for shopping, walking in a crowd of people and eating in ethnic restaurants. However, night markets are much more interesting for tasting the whole range of Taiwanese dishes. Taiwan cuisine will appeal to the lovers of seafood, noodles, rice (which is widely used for the production of alcoholic drinks as well), dishes of Japanese and Chinese cuisines.

The name of Taiwan – the Kingdom of thermal springs – is justified. In the district of Beitou there is a National Park Yangmingshan famous for its springs and blossoming cherry trees. Local hotels specialize in providing spa services (Aqua Bella Hot Spring Hotel, Nine Plus Spa Hot Spring Hotel). Another destination for recreation and leisure is the Green Island. Its uniqueness is that the thermal springs flow directly into the Pacific Ocean. Clear water and colorful underwater world attract fans of diving and snorkeling to the Green Island.

The best place to study the architectural and spiritual culture of Taiwan is the city of Tainan. But to see natural wonders of the island you should drive along the east coast of Taiwan and visit the Taroko National Park. There are a lot of options for an overnight stay: Hotels in Hualien where from you can get to the park by pubic transport; luxurious Silks Place Taroko Hotel surrounded by stunning landscapes, or cheaper hotels – Leader Village, Delight Villa, YU's Homestay B&B.

Where to stay
In Taipei it is very convenient to stay close to the main transportation hub – the Taipei Main Station. First, it is the center of the city with a developed infrastructure, and secondly, you can easily go to a new island tour every day. In the Holo Hostel you will find not only a comfortable accommodation at an available price but also a cheerful company of travelers from different countries. Also in the area there are a lot of mid-priced hotels such as Chair Man Hotel, San Yon Hotel. Cheap hotels in Taipei within a walking distance of the metro stations are the following: Hotel B7, Taipei Morning Hotel, Star Beauty Resort.

Still there is a beach holiday in Taiwan! In the very south of the Pingtung County along the sandy shores there are five star hotels: Caesar Park Hotel Kenting, Chateau Beach Resort Kenting, Howard Villa. Cheaper hotels (Lan Hai Resort, Austra Star Inn) are located at a distance from the shoreline. If you plan to visit the aquarium (National Museum of Marine Biology & Aquarium) then you can stay in the Holland Hotel.
