Discover Taiwan with this map of Taiwan
Separated from mainland China by the Taiwan Strait, Taiwan is an island with a rather complex political situation. Governed by the Republic of China since 1949, mainland China – the People's Republic of China – claims it has ownership of this island nation. Politics aside, Taiwan is a popular tourist destination with a well developed tourism infrastructure.
With its majestic mountains, fast-flowing rivers, tropical climate and significant numbers of endemic birds, Taiwan has plenty to offer nature-lovers. The majority of its population is of Han Chinese ethnicity, and the remainder divided into no less than 13 major Taiwanese aboriginal groups, each contributing in some way to the multifaceted culture of Taiwan. We hope that the map of Taiwan featured here will help you gain more insight into this fascinating island nation.
