Taipei EDITOR'S PICKS
Stunning Nature Excursions from Taipei
There is an abundance of natural beauty to enjoy in Taiwan and many of them just a day trip away from Taipei. Leave the city briefly for the island nation's natural wonders and discover dramatic sceneries with the marble gorges of Taroko Gorge, the rock formations of Yehliu, the serene panorama of Sun Moon Lake and so much more.
Pro-Tip This summer, fly to Matsu Island for a magical sight like no other. See as the coastline glows a brilliant blue, a natural phenomenon created by luminescent algae called the noctiluca scintillans. Witness this ethereal attraction with a convenient flight and hotel package departing from Taipei.
