Culture

Taiwan is a rapidly changing, ever evolving nation whose culture is a blend of aboriginal, Taiwanese folk, Chinese classical, and Western-influenced modern cultures. This kaleidoscope of cultures gives visitors to Taiwan an amazing mixture to discover. One thing that appears across the board is the kind, helpful and friendly spirit of the Taiwanese people.

With a plethora of temples, ancient rites and deeply held religious beliefs one visiting Taiwan cannot help but notice a deep connection between the present and the past in modern day Taiwan. Also, easy to discern is the predominantly Han Chinese culture taken from mainland China. What many visitors may not be aware of is that Chinese migration to Taiwan is only a recent historical occurrence, happening as late as the 17th century when the Dutch were in search of farm laborers.

Up until this time, Taiwan was mainly inhabited by what we now refer to as the aboriginals, descendants of the Austronesian peoples of Southeast Asia. They have lived on the island for thousands of years. Taiwan has 16 recognized tribes who share similar values but these indigenous tribes all have unique histories, cultures, languages, and practices which distinguish them from each other.

The government in Taiwan has recently been promoting these cultures as part of the identity of Taiwan. Taiwanese aboriginal groups have seen a reviving of their traditional cultures and are now sharing their distinct dress, musical style and talent with the world. Cultural parks abound and including a trip to some of them is sure to deepen your appreciation for the culturally diverse island of Taiwan.
