A weekend in Taiwan means mountains swathed in mist and palm trees, vibrant night markets fragrant with chilli oil and coal-roasted yams, hiking trails through lily-covered hillsides and mountain-top teahouses over tumbling springs. Taiwan was once named Isla Formosa (beautiful island) for a reason, and with daily non-stop flights from Singapore, the mountains are calling to be your next long weekend destination.
From farms where you can feed the sheep to friendly minsu (homestays) where you’ll dine on organic veg plucked straight from the garden, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from when looking for a Taiwanese farm stay. If you’re wondering where to go in Taiwan, we’ve put together a list of green retreats from the northern tip of the island to its southern sub-tropical jungles. We’re talking about immersive experiences you won’t find at a traditional hotel that will make your Taiwan farmstay one for the memory books.
