Lanyu (Orchid Island), Taiwan.

Lanyu is a small island, about 45km², to the southeast of Taitung. It’s a choppy, four-hour boat ride away. It’s not luxurious living. The terrain is rugged and, at first, the island feels dark and mysterious. It is Orchid Island – one of the most breathtaking displays of untouched aboriginal life that this author has ever seen.

Taiwan is an easy must-go location.

Add Taiwan to your bucket list.

If you’re a budget traveler that wants to really understand Taiwan within the time that you’re in Taipei, scan over Taiwan’s “must – do ” list while in Taipei for the best way to do it all.

When I wrote that article for about the things you must-do in Taiwan, I was just about to start my month long trip around the island on a scooter. Now, after the trip, I can definitely say that you can get a big bite of a taste of Taiwan just with a few days in Taipei. So, if you don’t have a lot of time in Taiwan, you can still have the full experience in Taipei.
