Everyone has a beautiful image of Taiwan in their own mind. Aside from the lovely scenery, the food is what many people remember most fondly of their visit. The gateway to Taiwan, Taoyuan International Airport, has recently brought in popular Taiwanese restaurants and snacks to allow visitors to bring their stay in Taiwan to a perfect end.
