Touched By Taiwan Leisure Tour Bicycle Experience

This tour is all about experiencing Taiwan’s loving culture, delicious food scene and stunning landscapes, leisurely, via bicycle. When exploring on a bicycle, you’ll connect more completely with the local sights, sounds, and true nature of Taiwan’s vibe. Taiwan’s unique history and influence from the Chinese, Japanese and native people appear in a number of ways. On this tour,  you can expect fun times in the best restaurants (fancy and famous as well as small neighborhood style), riding bicycles on flat lands along stunning coastline, a mixture of historical sites, museums, and cultural centers that make Taiwan unique, and a variety of other means of travel to see stunning landscapes (car, train and boat). Taiwan is home to some of China’s most prized historical artifacts collections. The forests and mountains are beaming with life, home to native Taiwanese monkeys, fruit and non-stop vegetation. The food scene will have you constantly looking forward to the next meal. Have you tried bubble tea yet? The level of service you experience on this trip will be high. You’ll stay in luxurious hotels in the cities, and clean, charming accommodations in the small towns. You’ll be accompanied by guides and translators at all times, unless you tell them to buzz off. Our goal is to give you access to a completely foreign place and way of life, without being intimidated or worried about any of the logistics and unknowns. Once you land at the airport, you’ll be completely taken care of by us and every cost is covered (food, accommodations, transportation and more). Your trip will likely include time a bicycle everyday, unless you prefer to rest or enjoy the views from our support van. Riding difficulty will be easy to moderate. Travelers coming to focus on views, culture and history rather than ride time will find this tour perfectly suited for them. It’s a safe trip for solo travelers, families, couples and friends.
