Republic of China Travel Information


Taiwan Flag Taiwan, and a number of nearby islands are home of the Republic of China (ROC). The Republic of China originates with the then Chinese Nationalist (Kuomintang) government which fled the mainland, after the Chinese Communists won the Chinise Civil War and formed the People's Republic of China. As such, the Republic of China formally claims to be the legitimate government of all China including the mainland (such claims are generally not actively pursued, and there have been proposals to declare independence), whereas conversely the People's Republic of China claims to be the legitimate government of both the mainland and the island of Taiwan. Most countries, and the UN, recognize only the government of the People's Republic of China, although many countries do have informal relations with the Republic of China.

As of 2009, the population of the Republic of China was estimated to be 23,119,772. The capital and largest city, Taipei, as of 2010, had a population of 2,606,151, with the total combined population of the city and surrounding metropolitan area being 6,870,357.

    Product Description:
    This new edition of Bradt's Taiwan continues to offer some of the most comprehensive coverage available and has been fully updated to reflect all the most recent developments on the ground. Author and long-term resident of Taiwan Steven Crook has been to every corner of the main island and every one of the outlying archipelagos. He has written about Taiwan's cultural and scenic attractions for international newspapers and inflight magazines and he has a keen understanding of what international visitors are likely to enjoy and what they need help with to appreciate.
    This new edition includes an even greater emphasis on the Taiwanese favourite pastime of local food, as well as increased coverage of increasingly popular east Taiwan and expanded information about the National Palace Museum Southern Branch. Place names and other useful words and phrases (for ordering food and arranging transport) are presented in Chinese script for convenient communication.
    Detailed coverage of the capital city Taipei is complemented by a chapter-by-chapter breakdown of the rest of the country, from Hakka Country to Kaohsiung and Pingtung and the minor islands. More than 58% of Taiwan is covered by forest, making the country as interesting for its wildlife and outdoor activities as for its cities and towns. Taroko Gorge, Mount Jade, national parks, beaches and birdwatching, temples and monasteries, peaks and mountains are all covered, along with beguiling islands such as coral Little Liuqiu, saltwater hot springs, the East Rift Valley and popular Lukang.
    Taiwan is one of the most pro-US societies in the world and there are few places where Americans feel more welcome. Taiwan is often described as ‘more Chinese than China', but in reality it's a complex blend of 18th-century China, ancient Austronesia and 20th-century Japan, with dabs of post-war Americana and an abiding passion for anything that tastes good, wherever it comes from. Bradt's Taiwan is the perfect companion for discovering all of this, written by an expert who knows the country inside out and is well versed in delivering exactly what you need for a successful trip.
