Why Taiwan? That is a question uninitiated visitors to Taiwan may ask. Beginning with its Portuguese discoverers, who called it Isla Formosa, Beautiful Isle; they will soon find there is much in Taiwan to enjoy. With close to 1,000 miles of coastline to stroll, 286 mountain peaks over 9,000 feet to climb, 10 islands to explore, countless festivals to celebrate and 14 aboriginal groups to meet, Taiwan is a wondrous land with an abundance of surprising things to do, see and experience. Joseph has covered the island from every angle. He's taken in the island by rail, reveled in its natural treasures, sampled its unique foods and drinks, combed through its night markets, explored its islands, participated in spiritual and cultural festivals and celebrated with its people. In his latest Taiwan episode Joseph dips into his previous Taiwan adventures, picks the best of his experiences and answers the question, "Why Taiwan?"

About Joseph Rosendo's Travelscope:

The Daytime Emmy-winning travel series Travelscope- now re-titled JOSEPH ROSENDO'S TRAVELSCOPE- scales new heights of adventure, natural splendor and cultural richness this season.

Host Joseph Rosendo journeys from the California coast to the islands of Hong Kong and to Chile's Tierra del Fuego.

Along the way, he encounters the heights of natural beauty in the Cariboo-Chilcotin Coast region of British Columbia, celebrates Christmas in Switzerland and circumnavigates the tip of South America.

The series' hallmark remains the rich cultural interchanges between Joseph and the local population.

He joins the parade of medieval guilds during Zurich's spring festival, shares devotions with a holy man in a rock-hewn church in Lalibela, Ethiopia and explores the mysteries behind the stone figures on Easter Island.
