Taiwan Province Overview
The name of Taiwan comes from the first Chinese administration in the island. Located to the southeast of the Chinese mainland opposite Fujian Province, the island province of Taiwan is flanked by the Pacific Ocean to the east and the Taiwan Straits to the west. Covering an area of 36,000 sq km, Taiwan includes Taiwan Island, the Penghu Islands and 80 other smaller neighboring islands and islets. Taiwan was called Yizhou or Liuqiu in ancient times. Records of Chinese people developing Taiwan in earlier periods are found in many historical documents. Beginning from the mid 12th century, the Chinese governments of different dynasties set up administrative bodies to exercise jurisdiction over Taiwan.

Taiwan has a very rich traditional Chinese culture. The blending of hakka, Taiwanese, has produced a rich plethora of cultural and social colors. When you are taking a vacation in Taiwan, do not miss the opportunity to taste different Chinese cuisines, such as Zhejiang from China, Hunan, Guangdong, Yunnan, Shanghai, Beijing, Sichuan, and others from China.
