Besides its crowded cities, Taiwan is also known for steep mountains, lush forests and some very impressive scenic sites. Country’s culture is regarded with the Chinese and Japanese influence due to its colonial time but has also developed its own distinction. And unlike its conquerors Taiwan still have managed to preserve its indigenous population that inhabited on the island for thousands of years. In the past decades Taiwan became one of Asia’s big traders and sustained the position of an advanced industrial economy in the world as a result of rapid economic growth and industrialisation. With its high-tech industry, Taiwan plays a key role in the global economy.
