    Yehliu Taiwan - DVD.
    Nature Wonders. 10 Minutes. In the north of Taiwan, close to the second largest harbor in Keelung, is one of the world's greatest natural wonders. Due to its bizarre rock formations, Yehliu Park provides visitors with scenery that could be from a distant planet. But the polymorphic shapes of the rock are not extraterrestrial but the result of an ancient process that dates back several million years, erosion. Some of the rocks seem to grow out of the ground like giant mushrooms. The reason for this lies in the composition of the rock strata. The more elevated sections are often far harder and weatherproof than the lower layers that crumble away and have been transformed into gravel and sand. In 1964, the Yehliu Peninsula was officially designated as a park and since then it has been one of Taiwan's most important and popular tourist attractions. The park consists of a total area of around 53 hectares of land and more than 400 hectares of coast. Its rocky terrain flanks the South China Sea. The Queen's Head is Yehliu's world famous landmark. But even this amazing natural work of art shows sign of aging. However, Yehliu will still be known as an outstanding wonder of nature, as wind, salt and water continue to sculpt its scenery and thus create further spectacular and imaginative rock formations for future generations to come.

The route becomes steeper and steeper as the narrow gauge train travels tentatively into the higher regions and also into changing weather. Luxury is the last thing that can be expected on the Alishan Express as the carriages are extremely basic. The town of Alishan was named after the mountains of the same name and in recent years it has developed into one of the most popular tourist destinations in Taiwan. The Giant Trees Trail has become popular with walkers. It leads through an unusual forest that is full of thousands of years old trees, the "Trees Of Three Generations", ancient trees that have developed in a fascinating way.

    Nature Wonders. 10 Minutes. The pathless mountain region of Alishan, in the heart of Taiwan, is famous for its magnificent forests and huge cypress trees.

Even today, this place possesses both a romantic and poignant atmosphere and is one of Alishan's most popular tourist attractions. Thought to be 3,000 years old, the Alishan Sacred Tree is quite outstanding. In 1956, it was struck by lightning and died, yet the dead giant has lost nothing of its mighty appearance.

    Tainan Taiwan - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Located close to the coast, the former Taiwanese capital of Tainan is both historically and culturally one of the country's most fascinating cities.

The Kuang Kung Temple is the tallest `war-god-temple' in Taiwan. The present buildings were built at the beginning of the 18th century although the foundations were built much earlier. Tainan also contains the oldest Confucian temple on the island. The sanctuary and its adjoining school were founded in 1665 and were gradually extended.

    Lukang Taiwan - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Although the exterior of the Lungshan Temple may appear to be somewhat modest, the sanctuary is one of the most well known architectural landmarks of the Taiwanese town of Lukang. Built in the eighteenth century this Buddhist sanctuary on the San Min Road is not only the oldest temple in Lukang but also the oldest in the whole of Taiwan. Chinese settlers originally built it for their important goddess, Kuan-Yin, who led her followers to the island of Taiwan. The strong September winds and the security of the local people in the old part of town gave rise to the unusual, winding layout of Chinseng Lane. Its many curves were designed to make it difficult for thieves to gain entrance to this part of town and also to reduce the severity of the treacherous winds. In the heart of Lukang the China of old still continues to thrive and even today the former merchant's houses are a captivating sight. The highly developed skills of the former Chinese craftsmen are evident in many buildings of the old town such as Gin Mern Hall. Due to its wealth of historic buildings and also to its many flourishing arts and crafts, today Lukang is one of the most fascinating towns in Taiwan.

    Taiwan: Gods, Spirits and Pagodas - Travel Video.
    DVD. Cosmos Global Documentaries. 52 Minutes. Taiwan is an island of gods, ghosts and pagodas with an abundance of legendary treasures and a cultural inheritance that can still be seen in all its age-old splendour. Numerous of its sanctuaries reflect the traditional culture of China and in contrast to the People's Republic, here Chinese culture has been extremely well preserved. With around two and a half million inhabitants Taipei is the island's largest city and also the capital of Taiwan, a metropolis that reflects both old and new. Taipei's Bao-An Temple was dedicated to the deity of medicine, Baosheng Dadi, a god that was once mainly worshipped in the Chinese province of Fujian. In contrast to the island's many other sanctuaries the Chih Nan temple complex is inhabited by around fifty monks. The monastic community underlines the extraordinary importance of this sanctuary for both Taiwanese Taoistm and Buddhism. Dedicated to Taoism, the temple complex of Chih Nan is one of the most important seats of religious education in Taiwan. Due to its two hundred or more large temple complexes and numerous small shrines, Tainan, is also known as The City Of Temples and although the Tien Gon Temple is one of the city's most recently built sanctuaries it is very popular with the local population. On the western coast of Taiwan is the small harbour town of Lukang that was the first landing place for many of the immigrants who arrived from the Chinese region of Fujian. Lungshan's "Dragon Temple" dates back to the Qing Dynasty and was built to commemorate the Goddess Of Charity, Kuan-Yin, who had once transported immigrants safely to the island and was worshipped as the Patron Saint of seafarers. An almost totally lost part of historic China lives on in Taiwan, a legendary island of gods, spirits and pagodas because this island at the end of the rainbow has somehow managed to retain its thousands of years old traditions and beliefs.
