Taiwan’s bustling cities, along with its breath-taking tropical forests, green and marble mountains, hidden gorges and enormous sea cliffs can also make it seem like a paradise for students.
Many of the region’s universities rank in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, and are successful across a range of academic fields, including engineering, management and medicine.
The capital city of Taipei has a lot to offer culturally, too. Its temples are used not only for prayer but also to host cultural festivals and art-house events.
