The International Culture Tour of Taiwan provides a unique and exciting opportunity to learn firsthand about the beautiful island of Taiwan and its people, culture, and history. This biennial tour is geared toward college students and young professionals but open to all who are interested. The 2013 tour will begin with three days in Yilan County, with presentations on Taiwanese culture, history, music, and politics, and visits to local sites such as night markets, museums, and a traditional arts center. On the fourth day, the group will embark on an island-wide bus tour along Taiwan’s stunning east coast to Taroko National Park, Hualien, and Taitung, before continuing to the vibrant southern cities of Pingtung, Kaohsiung and Tainan, and finally returning to the capital city of Taipei via Hsinchu. The itinerary includes stops at significant sites of historical and cultural interest; lectures; video presentations; discussions about the history, culture, economics, and politics of Taiwan; and plenty of opportunities for fun and exploration.
The tour runs 11 days/10 nights (12/23/13 – 1/2/14), and the registration fee is US$1,000.00 (inclusive of lodging, meals, tour transportation, and all admission tickets). The tour language is English. If a lecture or a presentation is not in English, a translator will be provided.
The 2013 International Culture Tour of Taiwan will be the twelfth tour sponsored by the Tsunah Foundation. Previous tour participants have mostly been undergraduate and graduate students from U.S. universities, and young professionals. Registration is open to individuals 18 years and older.
