Let's be Friends - Youth Travel in Taiwan!

About Me: The ‘Taiwan Trekking for Young Travellers' website was created by the National Youth Commission (NYC) of Taiwan . The NYC is the government agency responsible for career development, business startups, civil society work, and voluntary service for young Taiwanese people aged between 18-35. The NYC is part of the Executive Yuan.
The NYC chairs the International Youth Travel Task Force under the Executive Yuan's Tourism Development Committee. The Task Force has drafted an Action Plan to Promote International Youth and Student Travel in Taiwan , which outlines policies to comprehensively assess and integrate current resources, and develop a complete framework for international youth travel in Taiwan . This website is part of the Action Plan.

The ‘Taiwan Trekking for Young Travellers' site is designed for young people thinking of touring Taiwan, or travellers already here who are looking for somewhere to go off the beaten track. You will find sections on destinations, events, transportation, accommodation, a survival guide, work and study, travel blogs, and community message boards.
