 Discover the beauty of Taiwan, enjoy the landscape an relax!!! !
Our licensed guide/driver will drive you around the island to discover the most amazing landscape and secrets spots!


...one would think that on an island like Taiwan, within a short driving distance, you can reach the Ocean  and the mountains in a day... Well ... it is true but not easy with pubblic transportation. 
 

Despite the small dimensions of the island, Taiwan has not an easy public transportation, except from the High speed train, that connects the North ( Taipei ) to the South ( Kaoshiung ) in just 2 hours.

Local Trains are surely slower then the High speed train, but good to connect the most remote villages and reach most of the cities of the East cost - since the HSR only travel on the West coast.  Trains run all around the island but not in the inside, where the terrain is not favorable for rail roads. 
 

The bus system is the cheapest and most common way to travel around Taiwan and connect the most remote villages on the island, but it takes time... and patiente! 
 

This section is dedicated to those who want to travel independently and want to  freely discover Taiwan or just wander around our beautiful island without be worried by public transportation's schedules.
