In a short article playing up swanky new hotels, as well as the much-loved old favourite Kenting National Park, The New York Times last weekend ranked Taiwan no. 11 on its list '52 Places To Go In 2014'.Taiwan's tourism authority is, of course, delighted by such positive coverage.
Also recently, The Guardian featured Taiwan among its 'Holiday hotspots: where to go in 2014.' Putting Taiwan no. 35 on a list of forty destinations, the British newspaper stressed the island's culinary attractions. Unfortunately, both links in the final paragraph are dud. There are contact details for Taiwan Food Adventures here, while the correct website for Jodie's Kitchen is here.
Neither article mentioned Taiwan's stupendous mountain scenery. To redress the imbalance, here's a photo I took several years ago in Yushan National Park.
