Northern Taiwan, as its name suggests, is the northmost region of Taiwan. It is the political and financial centre of Taiwan. It is also the country's main hub of technological development. Though it is not as scenic as the other regions of Taiwan, it is the most frequently visited region by travellers. The country's capital, Taipei, is also located here.
