Taiwan For Culture Vultures, written by one of Taiwan's most experienced English-language writers, introduces Taiwan's cultural, historical and architectural attractions - its temples, churches, museums, fortresses and other manmade landmarks. It isn't a guide for ecotourists, hikers, cyclists or extreme sports enthusiasts; their needs will be met by separate, specialized guides.
All the attractions described are on the main island of Taiwan.
