alt title

Beneath its Western façade, the island of Taiwan carefully preserves its Chinese cultural history, and nowhere is this more evident than in its vibrant capital, Taipei. Explore this singular city with travel maven Burt Wolf. Visit the National Palace Museum to see the largest collection of Chinese art in the world, shipped to Taiwan for safekeeping before the communist takeover, then learn about regional Chinese cuisine with master chef L. F. Huang. Finally, study the Tao of tea on this mountainous terrain, where some of the world’s finest teas are grown, and visit one of the island’s 10,000 places of worship.
