Taiwan is a modern and easy-going country for travels. The level of costs is low despite high standards in general. National parks and other sites for birding are well maintained and we never had problems to find somewhere to stay for the night. We only made one hotel reservation in advance! In the time of writing, there are 27 endemic bird species (IOC) on the island, and in addition a handful that are likely to be split in a future. We saw all of these and also some cool animals in 12 days. Then we continued for a months birding in nearby Japan.
