(T. 1) Where should I go when I visit Taiwan?
Well, this is a tough question ...... The answer really depends on
what you are interested in. Different friends might give you different
answers. The list below at least gives you some rough ideas.
Taipei Zoo (Taipei City)
This zoo is located in the Wen-shan District in Taipei, and
also the southern terminus of the Brown line (Mu-cha) Metroline
System. It covers 182 acres and is considered one of the major
zoos in Eastern Asia.
Among the displays the "Butterfly Aviary" and the "Nocturnal
House" are two musts. For the former, there is a large
greenhouse in which the visitors walk through a wooden walkway
while observing the flying butterflies. For the latter, smaller
nocturnal animails are in the indoor display where the lighting
conditions are reversed as compared to the outside.
The male Indian elephant "Wang Lin" is a legend of the zoo. It
served in WWII and it is now 78 years old.
228 Peace Park(Taipei City)
This park, previously known as "New Park" which is close to the
Presidential Building, can be regarded as a good place to take
refuge from the downtown chaos. Taiwan Provincial Museum
(currently in a reconstruction phase and is close to the
public) lies in the north side of the park, where some
interesting artifacts made by Taiwanese aborigines are in
This park becomes a totally different place in the evening as
transvestites and gays took it over.
Hua-shi Street (Taipei City)
Hua-shi Street, also known as the Snake Alley, reminds people
of the snake soup and snake bile, though currently some
wildlife protection laws in Taiwan have effectively removed
this business here. Nevertheless, it is a decent night market
and worth your visit if you enjoy crowds. It is usually active
from around 19:00 to midnight.
Traditional Chinese herbalists consider the snake meat as an
aphrodisiac, and therefore some brothels exist in adjacent
alleys. Recently the thug-like pimps might become more
aggressive for business. Try to have a buddy with you if you
are a male.
National Palace Museum (Taipei City)
This museum, located in Waishuanghsi, Shihlin, is considered
one of the four best museums in the world, in line with Louvre,
British Museum and Metropolitan Museum of Art. It also holds
the greatest collection of Chinese antiques in the world,
around 700,000 items. Among the collections, the "Jade Cabbage"
might be the most famous one which was carved on a piece of
Free English, Spanish, French, German, Japanese, Korean and
Chinese tours are available.
Tanshui Hung-mao Cheng (Taipei County)
This fort, previously named Fort Santo Domingo, was built by
the Spanish and later held by the Dutch. At that time local
people called the Dutch "the red-haired people", and this name
is used until present times. There are four antique cannons in
front of the fort which were built during the early nineteenth
Yehliu (Wild Willow) (Taipei County)
Yehliu is noted for its fantastic rock formations due to
constant erosions by the waves.
Formosan Aboriginal Culture Village(Nantou County)
This Village is a 62-acre outdoor museum with exhibitions on
the culture and art for the nine surviving aborigine tribes,
namely Ami, Atayal, Bunun, Paiwan, Puyuma, Rukai, Saisiat,
Tsou, and Yami. Tribal dance performances are available.
East-west Cross-island Highway (Hualien, Taichung Counties)
This highway, officially Provincial Route 8, is rated as one of
Asia's most beautiful mountain road, especially the section
from the eastern entrance at Taroko to Tienhsiang, which is
around 10 miles (16 km) long. Swallow's Grotto, Tunnel of Nine
Turns and Tienhsiang are some of the most scenary points along
the road. They are also the points of interests of Taroko
A branch of this highway connects Tayuling and Wu-she, climbs
up more than 10000 feet high and passes a grassland formed by
arrow bamboos. Hohuanshan, Taiwan's only skitraining center, is
accessable from this branch.
Yushan National Park
This is the national park with the largest hinterland in
Taiwan. Yushan, with a height of 3950 m, is the highest peak in
eastern Asia. A pedestrian trail, Patungkuan Ancient Trail,
connects Shuili, Nantou and Yuli, Hualien. It was built up in
the Ching Dynasty.
Chaotien Temple (Yunlin County)
Peikang Chaotien Temple might be the Matsu Temple in Taiwan
with the most believers. It shows the typical temple
architecture style in Taiwan.
Lanyu (Orchid Island) (Taitung County)
Located in the southeast of Taiwan, Lanyu is still inhabited by
around 2000 oborigines, who still preserve their traditional
lives, like wearing loincloths and rowing canoe-like small
boats decorated by mysterical marks.
(Note: In some areas in Taiwan, especially for the wilderness area
and/or some villages inhabitated by the aborigines in the mountainous
region, a Class A/B Mountain Permit might be required for people other
than the local residents. Class B permits are easily obtained with a
nominal fee and they are usually issued at the checkpoint with a valid
ID in minutes. Class A permits must be applied in advance and they are
quite difficult to obtain. Contact

(T. 2) What are the prohibited and restricted articles when I leave/enter
First of all, prohibited and restricted articles for tourists
traveling into or out of Taiwan might be changed frequently. For the
most up to date information, please contact
Directorate General of Customs

Tel: 886-2-741-3181, 752-3355, 772-2392

Tel: 886-3-398-2293, 2292, 2298,

Listed below is a partial list for the prohibited and restricted
articles when you enter Taiwan in addition to arms, opium, poppy seeds
and other synthetic narcotics. For some of them, you might declare
them and place them in the warehouse of Civil Aeronautics
Administration until departure.
* Gambling tools, including lottery tickets issued in foreign
* Obscene or indecent books, pictures and films.
* Publications propagating Communism.
* Articles produced, manufactured, originated and/or published in
* Restricted substances and drugs of non-prescription and
non-medicine nature (including marijuana).
* Toy guns and gun-shaped appliances.
* Articles infringing the rights of patents and/or copyrights.
* Endangered species of wildlife or their products, unless a
statement of concordance to import is obtained in advance.
Due to the change of the political climate across Taiwan Strait, there
are in fact many literatures from Mainland China freely distributed in
Taiwan now. Nevertheless, it is still advised for foreign tourists not
to bring in articles from Mainland China.
Each inward passenger is allowed to bring in New Taiwan Dollars no more
than NT$40,000. The excess amount should be mandatorily deposited in
bonds. There is no restrictions on the amount of foreign currencies
which must be declared. If the foreign currency exceeds US$5,000 and
it is not declared properly, the excess portion will be confisticated.
When you leave Taiwan, there are also certain articles prohibited in
addition to arms and the narcotics. A partial list is listed below.
Some items in the previous list are also prohibited from being taken
out of the country.
* Copies of books, phonograph records, tapes and video tapes
reproduced without authorization from the original sources, unless
they are for personal use.
* Genuine Chinese antiques.
* Contraband articles as specified by other laws, like false or
prohibited medicine and animal specimens.
There might be some constraints for the amount of gold, silver and
cash allowed to be brought into and/or taken out of Taiwan, which
might be changing frequently. Check with the customs office in
advance. Recently the amount of foreign currencies which can be
brought out of Taiwan becomes unlimited, though you might have to
declare them should they exceed some certain amount. There is still a
limit for taking New Taiwan Dollars outside Taiwan.
(Reference: "The Republic of China Customs Hints for Passengers",
published by the Directorate General of Customs, Taipei, October,
1994; "Chinese Customs: Inward Passenger's Declaration" form, May,
(T. 3) Where can I find foreign publications in Taiwan?
In Taiwan, "foreign language" usually refers to English, especially
American English. Sometimes it also refers to Japanese. Publications
in other languages also exist, but they are "endangered".
Most of the stores mentioned below carries the newspaper "USA Today".
In some stores, "New York Times" and "San Francisco Chronicle" are
also available. Check out Tung-hua (Marco Polo) Bookstore at No. 77-1,
Section 1, Chung-ching South Road, Taipei, if you are looking for more
newspapers from the U.S.
Kuang-tung Department Store for Books at No. 60, Section 1,
Chung-ching South Road, Taipei seems to carry a wide selection for
American magazines, including those on computers (PC Magazine, BYTE
and even Computer Shopper), fashions, and recreations. Their prices
are around 2 to 4 times those in the U.S.
The bookstore which offers probably the widest selection of American
publications might be the Cave Books (Tung-huang) at No. 103,
Chung-shan North Road, Section 2, Taipei. Another branch of the Cave
Books is nearby, but this branch is for Chinese books only. The branch
in Tienmu at No. 5, Lane 38, Tienyu Street might be more convenient
for people living in Northern Taipei.
In eastern Taipei you can visit Kinokuniya Bookstore of Taiwan, which
is located on the 7th floor of SOGO Department Store at No. 45,
Section 4, Chung-hsiao East Road with phone number 886-2-721-2304.
This is probably the largest bookstore in Taiwan which offers a wide
selection of Japanese books. It also offers the service to order
Japanese books which are not available in the store. Branches of
Kinokuniya in Taichung and Kaohsiung are located at
7th Floor, A Building, Chung-you Department Store
No. 161, Section 3, San-min Road, Taichung, Tel: 886-4-225-0695
10th Floor, Ishitan Ta-lih Department Store
No. 59, Wu Fu San Road, Kaohsiung, Tel: 886-7-272-5120.
Kinokuniya also has another branch in Tienmu area, Taipei. At least
the Kinokuniya in eastern Taipei also carries a lot of English books.
Hsin-shueh-you Bookstore (New Schoolmate) at No. 259, Section 1,
Tung-hua South Road, Taipei is also in eastern Taipei. It has less
collections for American books and Japanese magazines, but it still
deserves your visit if you are a lover for American glossy-covered
paperback bestsellers. In the basement level there is a small section
for DIY materials, including those for autos and gardenings.
Like Kinokuniya, Cave Books and Hsin-shueh-you Bookstore also have
branches in Kaohsiung and Taichung. Their addresses are as follows.
No. 302 Taichung Kang Road, Taichung,
No. 76-78, Wufu-4 Road, Kaohsiung,
No. 32 Lyuchuan East Road, Taichung,
No. 18, Chungcheng-2 Road, Kaohsiung;
Tower Records has branches in Taipei, too, where you can find some
CD's, cassettes and laserdiscs for pop songs, classical music and
movies. It also carries CD's from Taiwanese and Hongkong singers. The
largest branch is located at No. 12, Cheng-tu Road, Taipei, which is
around the removed circle in the Chung-hua Road area. Another branch
is in the eastern Taipei around Ting-hao Market, just above a KFC
restaurant. This eastern branch also carries a few US newspapers and
some magazines, though most of them are music or pop oriented.
(T. 4) Can I bring some electrical appliances into Taiwan?
In answering this question, we will concentrate on the technical issue
instead of the legal and tax ones. Of course, here only some small
personal appliances are discussed (cellular phones cannot be brought
into Taiwan without prior permission from Ministry of Transportations
Eletricity company in Taiwan, like the United States, provides power
at 110V AC rating (sometimes you might see people using 110/117/120
instead. They are all equivalent). Therefore in most cases, small
appliances originated from the U.S. can be brought to Taiwan and ready
for use without power incompatibility. Sometimes some receptacles in
Taiwan were provided with 220/240V AC rating for air conditioners, but
it should be easy to tell them from the common 110V ones.
The power rating might be compatible, but it is not necessarily the
case for the plugs and receptacles. In Taiwan, most wall receptacles
are for two-prong plugs with blade prongs of the same width. Newer
appliances in the U.S. are equipped with three-prong plugs, like
laptop computers and camcorder battery chargers. Therefore if you are
travelling to Taiwan with these devices, you are recommended to bring
with you at least one extension cord with 2-prong plugs (usually one
prong wider than the other) whose receptacles accepts 3-prong plugs.
In Taiwan, television sets are designed to receive NTSC signals, and
camcorders, VCR's, television sets and VHS video cassettes are
compatible among the countries adopting NTSC system, like Taiwan,
Canada, Japan, Korea, Mexico, the U.S. and some other countries in
central America. If you come from other areas, your appliances might
accept PAL or SECAM signals and these video appliances cannot be
readily used in Taiwan.

"email@example.com" and "Sony Video Camera Recorder CCD-V701
Operating Instructions" published in 1991)

(T. 6) I am a foreigner in Taiwan. Is there anything I should know?
If you are fluent in English, your life is easier. Many street names
are displayed in both Chinese and English at intersections in Taipei,
and many people (especially the younger generation) can exchange ideas
with you in English, though they might be shy and make some mistakes
in their words as they do not use English in their everyday lives.
Nevertheless, understanding each other should not be a problem. In the
country side you might encounter some problems though, since English
displays might be rare.
Taipei Municipal Police Department set up a Web page to cover some
issues about foreigners' documents, which is located at
It includes information about extension of visitor visa, lost or
stolen passports, alien resident certificate, reentry permit,
registration of birth, death, marriage, divorce and address change,
and so on. It also provides tips about handling traffic accidents and
tips against pickpocketings. Some handy phone numbers are available,

country code "886" is omitted in the phone numbers below):

(T. 7) Where can I find the representative offices for Taiwan in other
Theoretically the representative offices of a country should be called
"embassies", which are usually located in the capitals of the residing
countries, while those offices in the other major cities are called
"consulates". However, due to the diplomatic difficulties faced by
Taiwan, Republic of China, most of these offices have alternative
names. A partial listing of these offices are shown in the end of the
answer part for this question. For a complete listing of the
representative offices all over the world, please check out
for a listing updated by Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Note that for tourists from some eligible countries, including
Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Japan,
Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, the
United Kingdom, and the United States, waiver of visa are now good for
14 days for free, or you can apply a land visa upon arrival for 30
days for NT$ 1,500 (approximately US$ 60.00). Please check the WWW
