Enjoy Your Vacations in Taiwan

Taiwan , or officially The Republic of Taiwan, is also recognized historically as Formosa, through the Portuguese words “Ilha Formosa” – Enjoyable Tropical isle, the very first words that said to have come out from the otherwise speechless Portuguese navigators upon laying their thinking about sights about the tropical isle. And appropriately so, for the name stuck for centuries to come and hitherto, several sentimental souls still insist on addressing this pleasurable island as Formosa.

Which has a acreage of 35,980 sq. km., geographical eccentricities awash the terrain of this sweet potato-shaped tropical isle gem. From the lush and expanding verdant mountains of Wulai, the scenic ruggedness of Taroko Gorge, the dramatic basalt cliffs of Penghu, to the Taian Hot Springs, Taiwan is fast gaining a reputation as about the most diverse nature travelling destinations in Asia.

The Taiwanese culture is usually a sweet brew of Asian mainland and archipelagic ethnic mores and traditions, being at a strategic economic and cultural crossroads in between the two. It comprises the Chinese culture at its core, owing to the Taiwanese ethnical origins from your Chinese mainland, with a healthy spicing of Japanese, Malayan Austronesian and Western cultural influences.

It has been seen that the surging economic development of Taiwan for the last thirty years or so is nothing short of a miracle, and indeed it really is amicably dubbed as “The Taiwan Miracle”, an enduring testament of the Taiwanese patriotic resilience and tenacity. But seeing them up close, the Taiwanese people are affable, warm and cheerful. In point of fact, they’re a few of the nicest persons internationally.

They’re so packed with renqing wei, translated roughly as “personal affection,” that a first-time visitor would never think any bit someone you don’t know upon arrival, during his stay and definitely upon leaving this pleasurable isle state.

So feel free to visit Taiwan, and be among the sentimental ones who can’t turn down calling this isle Formosa – The Enjoyable Tropical isle. Travelling to Taiwan has become more accessible with many flights to Taipei.

Yangtze River Cruise

The common Chinese saying, ‘If you haven’t travelled up the mighty Yangzte River, you haven’t been anywhere’. It well describes the river’s range of picturesque landscapes, since Yangzte winds through some of China’s most scenic country. Snaking its way 6,300 kilometres from western China’s Qinghai-Tibet Plateau to the East China Sea, the Yangtze River stretches nine provinces and serves as a drain for 695,000 square miles of land. The most impressive section of the river is the three Yangtze River gorges: Qutang Gorge, Wuxia Gorge and Xiling Gorge, collectively known as Sanxia, or the Three Gorges.

@ hechi.mofcom.gov.cn

Qutang Gorge

Being shortest among the Three Gorges, Qutang Gorge is the most spectacular. Immediately downstream of the ancient village Baidicheng, the Yangtze River passes between the Chijia Mountain on the north and the Baiyan Mountain on the south. The point where the river passes between these mountains is called the Kuimen Gate and it is the entrance to the Qutang Gorge – the first of the three Yangtze gorges.

The Qutang Gorge is only 8 kilometres (5 miles) long, but it is also the narrowest of the Three Gorges. The widest point measures only 150 metres (500 ft) wide. The mountains on either side reach as high as 1,200 metres (4,000 ft). This combination of narrow canyons among high mountains with several switchbacks in only 8 kilometres creates spectacular vistas, and the Qutang Gorge is often considered the most beautiful of all the Three Gorges.

Wuxia Gorge

When the river flows out of Qutang Gorge and passes the broad valley of the Daning River, it enters the scenic Wuxia Gorge, the middle Yangtze gorge which straddles Sichuan and Hubei Provinces. Wuxia Gorge is 45 kilometers long, noted for its deep and serene scenes. So sheer are the cliffs that it is said the sun rarely penetrates. The boat passes, on the south side, it is said, like an ancient warrior’s silver coat of arms crowned by a round golden helmet. Ahead are the l2 peaks of Wu Gorge, famed frothier dark and somber grace. Poets have attempted to evoke both their bleakness and beauty. Wuxia Gorge is full of zigzag, weird peaks, rising mists and beautiful sights. The famous Twelve Peaks on both banks of the river, in particular, are the most spectacular. These strange-looking peaks are like a fairy maid dancing.
