Taiwan - Northern Taiwan (Chapter)
This is the Northern Taiwan chapter from Lonely Planet's Taiwan guidebook.
The ‘real Taiwan’ can be found in the north: watch tea farmers in rural Nanzhuang, drive up a crumbling mountain road to Smangus, a self-sufficient aboriginal hamlet, visit temple-dotted towns or climb the Snow Mountains.
- explore the quaint mining villages of Jiufen and Jinguashi
- enjoy wild vistas and natural hot springs on the North Cross-Island Highway
- cycle coastal and mountain routes all over the north of Taiwan
- restaurants & accommodation
