Tao Yuan, Taiwan
The cultural diversity of Taoyuan City is paralleled by an equal abundance of natural attractions, earning the county the nicknames of the "flower kingdom" and "land of a thousand ponds." The scenic sites along the Northern Cross-Island Highway and the historic Chiang Kai-Shek and Chiang Ching-Kuo Cultural Park are just a few of the many good reasons to visit Taoyuan.
Over the past two years, the Chiang Kai-Shek and Chiang Ching-Kuo Cultural Park has attracted over three million visitors a year. The park is a successful example of efforts by the Taoyuan City Government to create tourism value, promote innovative and high-quality visitor services with private sector partners, and develop locally unique attractions that present the "Taiwan Experience."
Taoyuan also has developed other distinctive attractions, such as the county's Hakka culture, military communities, rustic areas, trails, bikeways, and local industries, hoping to attract more visitors to discover the story of Taoyuan.
