Join us on 18-22 April 2024
for the 12th World Bamboo Congress.
This global event will take place at Hsinchu and Nantou in Taiwan.
The total area of Taiwan proper and its outlying islands is around 36,197 square kilometers. At about the size of the Netherlands, but with a population of some 23 million.
Taiwan proper has more than its share of natural splendor. Mountain ranges with many peaks reaching over 3,000 meters—including East Asia’s highest, Jade Mountain (Yushan)—and forested foothills occupy more than half of its area.
The island also features volcanic mountains, tablelands, coastal plains, and basins.
The Republic of China (Taiwan) is situated in the West Pacific between Japan and the Philippines.
