Formosa ("Beautiful Island")
Formosa is what the Portuguese called Taiwan when they came here in the 16th century and saw the verdant beauty of the island. When I was learning geography in school, Taiwan was called "Formosa," meaning "beautiful," a name given by Portuguese explorers passing by on the way to Japan in the 16th century. Taiwan has been abundantly endowed with mountains; over 200 of its peaks are more than 3,000 meters high, making Taiwan geographically unique.
As mountains can be found anywhere, mountain climbing is a popular leisure activity in Taiwan. Taiwan has a very rich marine ecology. You can see a groups of bottlenose dolphins, spinner dolphins, Risso's dolphins, and pan tropical spotted dolphins jumping out of the Pacific Ocean along the east. Azure seas and magnificent coral reefs can be found in Kending (Kenting) at the southern tip of Taiwan, and on Green Island and the Penghu Archipelago. This is a place for you to discover and be amazed.
