Gettting Around Taiwan
The Republic of China (Taiwan) allows certain passport holders visa-free entry for tourism, visiting friends or relatives, social visits, doing business, attending exhibitions, fact finding, and international exchanges.
In order to be approved for visa-free entry, make sure your passport is valid for at least 6 months (3 months for Japanese), can prove you do not intend on staying indefinitely in Taiwan (either by a flight reservation or some type of itinerary), and have no criminal record or other extenuating circumstances in the ROC.

Due to Taiwan's unique political status, representation in international organisations and events is quite tricky. Although Taiwan's official name is "Republic of China" (中華民國, ROC for short), because of the one China policy, both mainland China (the "People's Republic of China", 中华人民共和国 or PRC) and the ROC are adamant about the nomenclature used to represent Taiwan.
We're still trying to figure this out ourselves!

A common question that visitors may ask when visiting Taiwan is "if Taiwan is Taiwan, and China is China, then why do license plates say 臺灣省"?
This question is actually very easy to answer!
In 1927, government officials in China (then the Republic of China) began to faction due to disputes over the country's direction. The split occurred at an ideological level, primarily between nationalism from the Kuomintang party (KMT) and socialism from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
The bus from Kaohsiung to Kenting runs from HSR Zuoying (Kaohsiung) Station straight to Kenting, with stops in Dapengwan Bay (大鵬灣) and Hengchun (恆春).
The public bus is operated by the PT Bus (屏東客運) company, and from Zuoying to Kenting takes approx. 120 minutes for a fare of NT$650.
