Cheap flights to Taiwan
If you’re into gadgetry, you will be hard-pressed to tear yourself away from the spoils of Taiwan – an island off the coast of mainland China that is literally brimming with sundry items that you will be packing into your suitcase to take home and impress your friends. If shopping for trinkets is not your thing, there is plenty of other things to do in this densely populated country. In the capital, Taipei, National Palace Museum is a must-see with a huge collection of Chinese art. See the Tzushr Temple by moonlight for a spiritual experience, and head down along the Sandiaoling Waterfall Trail for some exercise and to see the exquisite panorama. Don’t miss the Chinese medicine shops in Dihua Street to cure your ills, and swing by the Huashan 1914 Creative Park – a retro-chic venue with a twist. Universal Traveller can get you to Taiwan with plenty of New Taiwan Dollars to spare, whatever your 'thing' is.

They say the island of Taiwan is shaped like a sweet potato, but you’re unlikely to find any yam-like food within its traditional cuisine as the culinary flavours of China are what most of Taiwan’s 23 million inhabitants eat. Hikers and adventurers will love the forests and mountains on offer for day trips or longer treks, but if you’re one who prefers to spend their time trawling shopping malls, you’re also in luck – many bargain hunters and fashionistas flock from all over the globe to make the most of the vast array of shops, boutiques and one-off designs you can snap up in Taiwan.
