TAIWAN AWAY FIVE NIGHT TOUR
TAIWAN vs AUSTRALIA
15 October 2019
THE CAMPAIGN TO 2022 QATAR WORLD CUP BEGINS!
Following our highly successful Thailand & Japan Away Tours...apart from the result....we're delighted to launch our new tour to Taiwan.
Taiwan lies on the western edge of the Pacific "rim of fire," and continuous tectonic movements have created majestic peaks, rolling hills and plains, basins, coastlines, and other natural landscapes. Taiwan's tropical, sub-tropical, and temperate climates provide clear differentiation between the different seasons. The capital Taipei is a modern metropolis with Japanese colonial lanes, busy shopping streets and contemporary buildings. The skyline is crowned by the 509m-tall, bamboo-shaped Taipei 101 skyscraper, with upscale shops at the base and a rapid elevator to an observatory near the top. Taipei is also known for its lively street-food scene and many night markets, making it an ideal destination for us to visit.

Today is a full free day to yourself to explore more of Taipei, do some shopping or just relax. We may have a chance to attend Socceroos training today if FFA allows it. The evening is yours to explore the Taipei nightlife, especially the wonderful night markets.
Day 4 - Monday 14th October - TAROKO (MARBLE) GORGE TOUR
We have an early start as we head off for a day in the countryside to explore Taroko Gorge. Taroko became a national park in 1986, including Hualien County, Nantou County and Taichung City. Taroko is famous for its spectacular mountains and marble canyons. Cliffs and canyons stretch along Liwu River. Such special geography has also bred special flora and fauna in this area.
We'll also explore Shakadang Trail, Eternal Spring Shrine (Changchun Temple), Swallow Grotto, Tianxiang, Marble Factory, Qixing Lake, Hualien Stone Sculptural Park and enjoy lunch in the Taiwan countryside.
Evening is yours to relax and get ready for the game tomorrow.

Today is the all important World Cup Qualifier against Taiwan. After a nice recovery sleep in and swim in the pool, we head out for our pregame function where we'll enjoy a few drinks before heading off to the stadium to soak up the atmosphere as the countdown to kickoff begins. Hopefully we'll be ready to celebrate post game, so we'll head back to the hotel and then hit the Taipei nightlife.
Day 6 - Wednesday 16th October - Home time
Fingers crossed we've woken up with the three points on the Road to Qatar. The tour concludes today and we make our way back to Australia to begin planning for our next trip to either Nepal or South America.
