Pack the 8th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Lotte World. There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Gyeongbokgung Palace, take a stroll through Insadong, explore the activities along Cheonggyecheon Stream, and get a taste of the local shopping with Namdaemun Market.

Heart of Asia
A sliver of land just off China's east coastline, Taiwan represents one of the world's most densely populated countries--and one of Asia's most powerful economies.

Those interested in more active pursuits can organize a Taiwan itinerary around its modern mountain resorts, well-developed beaches, and protected forests sheltering hundreds of species of native plant and animal life. Begin your visit in Taipei, a vibrant capital city with a thriving entertainment scene, relatively inexpensive accommodations, and an eclectic culinary scene.
