Taroko: Scenery and Transportation/太魯閣 01

  If you are fond of nature, you cannot miss Taroko National Park in Taiwan! After 4 million years of time, the national park gave birth to ample sceneries like majestic peaks, steep valleys and winding tunnels. Hence, it is named one of the “top ten must-see sights” according to a survey in the U.K. and recommended by Time in the U.S! Yet, how can we go to Taroko National Park, and what are the recommended attractions nearby? Don’t worry. Through our introductions, let us check out the tips for the tour at Taroko National Park in Taiwan together!


National Palace Museum/故宮

  Any visitor to Taiwan cannot miss the tour to the National Palace Museum (NPM)! Here at the NPM, you can get to appreciate the historic artifacts of the Chinese culture, including the Jadeite Cabbage that never spoils, the Meat-shaped Stone without taste, and the Mao-kung Ting for heaven worship or cookery, and so on and so forth. However, the NPM has more than these precious to offer. There are also three national-treasure landscape paintings that teleport us into the pictures! If you want to take a break, you can also go dining at the restaurant in the NPM! Don’t know how to order? Don’t worry. Just download “Huayu101” app and enjoy the tour!
