Helping You To Travel In Taiwan

Another Paradise off the coast of Taiwan - Orchid Island .
Dive Orchid Island Taiwan
Island of the Yami indigenous tribe

Orchid Island offers visitors and expats in Taiwan a great getaway option. Life here is relaxed and at slow pace. The people are friendly and go to great pains ensuring guests visit a pollution-free, clean island.

Tha Yami People are of Australasian descent, speak their own distinct language and have a culture well removed from that of the peole 'on the mainland ' ( as they sometimes refer to the Taiwanese). ( Lonely Planet,2008)

Coral reefs, the least spoiled in Taiwan, surround the coastline of this lush tropical island.

Orchid Island (pinyin: Lán Yǔ; Yami language: Ponso no Tao or Pongso no Tao) is a 45-km² volcanic island off the southeastern coast of Taiwan and separated from the Batanes of the Philippines by the Bashi Channel of the Luzon Strait. It is governed as Lanyu Township of Taitung County, Republic of China. The island is home to the Tao, an ethnic minority group who migrated to the island from the Batan Archipelago 800 years ago. The island is known to them as Ponso no Tao or Pongso no Tawo (island of the people) or Irala. The island is also known as Botel Tobago.(Wikipedia)







These packages were specifically designed with foreign visitors in mind. The package makes getting there easy; there is someone to greet you and assist you on all legs of the trip. Once you arrive on the island your hosts will greet you at the dock or airport and escort you to your hotel. We are now fully booked for 2011!! Please note that Orchid island is a very small place with very limited room supply etc. and that the weather can cause extended delayes on th eisland and get you stuck there for days of even a week!
