If you’re headed to Taiwan and want some local insight and expertise, head to Taiwan Tourism Bureau website, which features this information for travelers.  Taiwan is not only a destination for stopovers, but many more sightseeing tours you can join to experience Taiwan's culture, people, and cuisine.

This site will help you plan your trip but also give you some tips about visiting there. For example, unlike visiting Japan, for instance, you might learn from the site that the Taiwanese people are causal and generally well versed in Western culture, so you don’t need to learn about the various formalities and rules when visiting Taipei and Taiwain. It is also helpful to know that even if it’s warm, wearing flip flops or thongs is considered “farmer” attire and inappropriate.

The government site also offers a sightseeing section which offers detailed information about various sites to see in Taiwan, including the hot springs in Taipei.
