Slightly bigger than Japan’s Kyushu and Canada’s Vancouver Island, Taiwan (Formosa) is home to over 23 million people and is situated upon crossroads and frontiers.

Located on a blurry division between East and Southeast Asia, the island has been a crucial trade link between various regions since the 17th century. It is an ideal setting for the mixing of diverse languages, cultures and ethnicities.
