Welcome to Lanyu

Lanyu's status as a far-flung outpost isn't merely geographical, but cultural as well, as the island is the least Chinese part of Taiwan. The Tao people are of Australasian descent, speak their own language, and have a culture well removed from that of the people 'on the Mainland' (as they sometimes refer to the Taiwanese).

Lanyu is made up of two steep, jungle-covered mountains which are surrounded by a thin strip of coastal land with six villages. The 37km road circling both mountains can be driven in about 90 minutes.
