Taiwan tourist information, your Taiwan questions.

Frequent Asked Questions about Taiwan

From time to time I receive messages from visitors asking me questions about Taiwan, usually Taiwan tourist information related.

I normally tried to answer these questions, if related to my site topic, to the best of my knowledge.

I eventually decided to build this web page, where I collected this questions I received in the past and the relative answer.

Unfortunately, for lack of time, I have to suspend this initiative. So I deactivated the form used to send me the questions - I am very sorry, I cannot answer to your questions about Taiwan anymore.
