This luxury tour of Taiwan is the ideal introduction to the country's great art, fascinating culture, delicious cuisine and beautiful scenery. All touring is with expert private guides and drivers, and accommodation is at Taiwan's finest luxury hotels.
In Taipei, tour the National Palace Museum, home of one of the best collections of Chinese art in the world, to see porcelain, paintings, jade and other art objects that once belonged to the emperors of China. Visit ostentatiously decorated temples and taste your way through street stalls in the city's lively night markets. Perhaps visit nearby national parks or learn to prepare local dishes during a private cooking class. Also tour smaller but excellent museums, gardens, interesting residential districts, outdoor markets and wonderful shopping and dining districts.
Next, drive to Sun Moon Lake -- one of Taiwan's most famous and most beautiful vacation spots -- in the foothills of the Central Mountain Range. Stay at The Lalu, a stylish modern hotel with clean lines of stone and wood, and expanses of glass opening onto views of the crystal blue lake and the green hills beyond. Visit local temples and aboriginal villages in the surrounding region, and relax at your hotel's spa, swimming pool and contemporary teahouse.
