DETAILS: Hello you all lovely people! 🙂
This is going to be our last cultural evening of the year, and we want to make it special. That’s why we are taking you to..Taiwan! 🙂
Already inhabited before the arrival of Western settlers, it was first explored by Portugal, which gave the island the name of “Formosa”, which means beautiful. And it could not be any different since high mountains and green flat areas shape the landscape in a unique way.
After the Dutch dominion, the rule of Chinese Empire and the Japanese sovereignty, Taiwan underwent a serious of dramatic events when things changed in mainland China. However, during the 80s it experienced a massive growth, known as Taiwan miracle, and got officially listed among the Asian Tigers, i.e. countries which performed extremely well in their economy.
Nowadays, Taiwan is a modern country, one of the most developed in the world, and features a mix of tradition and modernity which enchants every traveler. Despite its small size, Taiwan has many landscapes, from the mountainous west to the flat and gentle east.
Green forest leave space to huge cities like the capital Taipei, ancient temples stand near some of the tallest skyscrapers in the world.
Taiwan is an authentic gate to discover Eastern Asia, and we are sure you will love it. In cooperation with our amazing partner MTÜ EstYES, we will discover this beautiful country and its culture together with a group of authentic Taiwanese people. So, come and do not miss it!
See ya! 🙂
