I am really looking forward to visiting Taiwan. I recently read an article in the New York Times ranking Taiwan 11th out of 52 places to visit in 2014. It mentioned the extensive bike trails1 and vibrant nightlife2 in Taipei. But I have also heard a lot about its natural beauty3. And everyone raves about the delicious foods, too.

Dear John,

Thank you for the prompt reply. You have given me some good ideas.

As for natural scenery4, you will be pleased to hear that there are many beautiful places to visit in the spring. The east coast of Taiwan is considered by many Taiwanese to have breathtaking views of the sea and coastal mountain ranges5, so I am now planning a four-day trip to Hualien.

In Hualien we will go whitewater rafting6 and stay overnight7 in Taroko Gorge National Park8. Taroko Gorge is renowned for its spectacular9 views. Also, it’s a terrific10 place to go hiking and see the magnificent rock formations11. After a day of hiking, we can go to a wonderful natural hot spring12 to soak, relax, and freshen up.

What do you think? I really hope you can experience the natural beauty of Taiwan.

Best regards,
