Taiwan is a place that has a few really intriguing and interesting places that can entice any visitor to the core. The capital city, Taipei is a very well developed and urbanized place with all the major centres of the businesses of the region. But beyond the urban locale of Taipei, lies a very fascinating landscape full of natural and artistic harmony.

The place has a lot of things to offer and if you really like to go to all of those places, it is unlikely that you would be able to finish the trip even after roaming around for a month. The better understanding and knowledge of a place helps in reducing the time you spend on a trip while ensuring you don’t miss out on the special attributes that the place can offer to a visitor.

Taipei 101

Taipei 101Taipei has a very well developed infrastructure and it shows when you look at the tall and handsome skyscrapers all over the place. But the most remarkably eye-catchy building is Taipei 101 with a staggering height of 449 meters that make all other buildings look like dwarfs. This building is the landmark of this city, a point of reference for everything. Visitors are easily captivated while looking around from the open air observation at the top. The building appears as if it reaches the clouds if looked up at from beneath. The special show held during the New Year celebrations with spectacular fireworks and lighting is simply incredible.

Laimei Green Reef

ReefThis is a place located in the Shimen District offers a very unique sight. The place has verdant reefs which have been cut irregularly by the waves and volcanic lava. This place is somewhat similar to a large colony of emerald seaweed but it is stunning never the less. The place looks the best during the months of April and May when the landscape is full of algae flourished on the rocks.  The only thing to keep in mind before visiting this place is to check the favourability of tides.

Shi Fen Waterfall

Shifen WaterfallThis waterfall is also known as the Niagara Waterfall of Taiwan and you can see why so. While you are about to reach this place, there’s a bridge that you would need to cross and its suspension based designing is something that will grab your attention for sure. This is the largest waterfall of this region and it gives a very calm and soothing effect to a person’s mind. The way to the top has been very aesthetically developed with artistic sculptures of mythological deities which make the place even more beautiful. You must not miss the joy of the rhythming beats of the natural waterfall from the second level.

Golden Waterfall

Golden WaterfallThis waterfall lies in the region which is known for the mines of gold and copper that were mined in the past under the Japanese occupation. Although the mines are no longer functional, yet the impact that the mines had is still present. This waterfall is an astonishing wonder of nature with its natural golden colour that shimmers under the blazing sunlight. Adding more to this visual delight, the gorgeous Mt Keelung in the backdrop of this waterfall gives the sight of perfection that nature could create. The scientific research that was conducted to examine the reason for this golden colour concluded that the rain seeping through the mines along with the metal deposits resulted in this copper yellow coating over the rocks.

Yin Yang Sea

Yin Yang seaThe Ying Yang Sea is situated just beside the golden waterfall and it also shows the same kind of effect. Have you ever wondered about a golden coast? This is a coast that looks light golden in colour near the bay and colour gradually comes into the actual ocean blue colour as you look deep down the horizon towards the endless ocean. The interesting part about the golden colour of the bay is not at all due to the same phenomenon as the golden waterfall. It is rather due to the geological factor caused by the excessive quantity of Iron Pyrite near the bay.
