Taiwan is the perfect spot for tourists who find themselves enamored of Asian culture. The little island about 100 miles east of mainland China offers all of the rich historical and cultural attractions you’d find in Beijing, but with a flavor all their own. A trip to Taiwan is certainly worth the airfare, whether you’re looking for a bumping club scene or a journey of spiritual proportions — or both. Of course, if you’re looking to get outside the normal tourist attractions and get a real impression of this beautiful little island, then here are some tourist attractions you should absolutely consider visiting if you happen to find yourself wandering though Taiwan.
1. Check Out the Dome of Light on Your Way to Somewhere Else
At the metro stop where Kaohsiung’s Red line and Orange line intersect sits the world’s largest piece of glass art in the world. Designed by Italian artist Narcissus Quagliata, the Dome of Light is devoted to telling the story of Taiwan’s journey toward democracy. The Dome is nearly a hundred feet across and divided into four quadrants, all of which will take your breath away.
