Beyond Our Borders
Known as the Ilha Formosa, or Beautiful Island, Taiwan is a lesson in contrasts--ancient and modern, bustling cities and peaceful retreats. These contrasts are explored with visits to such places as Taipei, said to be the second most densely populated city in the world, and the historical city of Tainan. Alishan, Beitou, Taroko Gorge, Penghu Island, Yenshui, and festivals at Taitung and Pingshi offer an additional glimpse into Taiwanese culture. [19 minutes]
