Geography
Taiwan, situated in the Pacific Ocean is about midway between Korea and Japan to the north and Hong Kong and Philippines to the south, and is a natural gateway for travelers to and within Asia. Shaped a little like a leaf, Taiwan is 160km off the coast of China.

The rest of the island is made up of steep mountains, terraced flatlands and rocky coastline. Taiwan province includes the Penghu Archipelago, a group of 64 islands, as well as 21 other islands.


Climate
Taiwan's climate is subtropical. The rainy season from May through September usually signifies the start of summer.

However, it can get quite hot and humid in summer. Winters (December through February) are short and mild although it rains almost all the time. Snow falls only on the island's higher mountains.


Taiwan is a mountainous island in the South China Sea, about 140 kilometres off the Chinese coast.

       The Chinese call the island Taiwan, meaning terraced bay. The wild, forested beauty of the island led Portuguese sailors in 1590 to name it Ilha Formosa, meaning beautiful island.

Background: In 1895, military defeat forced China to cede Taiwan to Japan, however it reverted to Chinese control after World War II. Following the Communist victory on the mainland in 1949, 2 million Nationalists fled to Taiwan and established a government that over five decades has gradually democratized and incorporated native Taiwanese within its structure.

Throughout this period, the island has prospered as one of East Asia's economic tigers. The dominant political issue continues to be the relationship between Taiwan and Mainland China and the question of eventual reunification.
