Taiwan is off the east coast of Asia, east of mainlandChina. Taiwan (also "Formosa" or "The Republic of China") consists of theislands of Taiwan, Penghu, Kinmen, Matsu and some minor islands inthe seas east of mainland China (in the Philippine Sea and theTaiwan Strait, extensions of the western No…rth Pacific Ocean). Because of the split between the Nationalists and Communistsfollowing the 1949 war, China still claims jurisdiction over Taiwanand vice versa. However, there is major conflict between the twoplaces, on whether to call it a province, the legitimate China oran entirely independent country altogether. (MORE)
Answer . Taiwan was created when Chinese Nationalists, after being defeated by the Communists, fled to Taiwan and created a new republic.
The capital of Taiwan is Taipei. Taipei is located on the Tamsui River, at the northern tip ofTaiwan. Taipei, New Taipei, and Keelung together form theTaipei-Keelung metropolitan area with a population of 6,900,273.
Taiwan is an island off the SE coast of China, between the East and South China Seas. It is difficult to say whether or not Taiwan is a state, because of disagreements between Beijing (People's Republic of China, mainland) and Taipei (Republic of China, Taiwan). Since 1949 mainland China has consid…ered Taiwan to be a rebel province. They each saw themselves as the legitimate government of both. Economic cooperation increased in the 1990's, but things soured when Taiwan redefined its relationship to mainland China as "state to state", implying that Taiwan sees the "two" Chinas as two separate, independent nations. Under the name "Republic of China", Taipei has applied for and has been denied membership in the UN. In August, 2007, the BBC reported that Taiwan may at some point re-apply to the UN under the name "Taiwan" and not "Republic of China". A spokesman said that this would be a technical decision for purposes of the application, and the constitutional name of "Republic of China" would remain. The United States of America is made up of 50 states and various possessions and protectorates, but this use of the word state is not the only one. World-wide, the word state implies that a region is an independent nation, able to conduct any affairs of 'state' with any other nation. The origin of the word in the US is not totally unrelated; in the US the 'states', originally independent of one another, have come together as a federation, with a central or federal government taking authority as given to it by the Constitution.

Taiwan is an island which has a different government than the Chinese mainland because the losing non-communist forces during the Chinese civil war fled to Taiwan leaving the communists to take over the mainland. The official title of Taiwan is the 'Republic of China'
Taiwan before 1945 was referred to as Formosa which is Portuguese for "beautiful island". After World War 2, China became embroiled in a civil war between Nationalist forces and Communist forces. In the end, the Communist forces under Mao Zedong were victorious and so the Nationalists were forced to… leave mainland China and instead moved to Formosa which they referred to as "The Republic of China" as opposed to mainland China which is the "Peoples' Republic of China".

Formosa , the name given it as a colony of the Netherlands from 1624 to 1662.. In 1544, a Portuguese ship sighted the main island of Taiwan and dubbed it "Ilha Formosa", which means "Beautiful Island." It was occupied only by indigenous aborigines. In 1624, the Dutch established a commercial base o…n Taiwan. (MORE)
When the Portuguese first saw Taiwan, they called it "Formosa". wich means " beautiful island" that's the first name that Taiwan has. Then the aborigines called it "dayuen" which became " Taiwan"
It is formally known as the Republic of China.. Taiwan was named Formosa ("beautiful [island]") by Portuguese explorers, so Westerners did know the island as "Formosa" until the 20th century.. On mainland China, Taiwan is written å°æ¹¾, and spelled TÃ¡iwan in pinyin. On Taiwan, the name… is written èºç£, and spelled Taiwan or T'ai-wan in roman letters. The difference in Chinese characters has to do with the fact that on mainland China they now use "simplified characters" that the Taiwanese do not use.. When the Dutch were running a colonial trade company based on Taiwan, they also used the spelling Tayoan, which is pronounced the same as "Taiwan." (MORE)

It was always Taiwan in Chinese. Formosa was given by the Westerners (the Portuguese) and as the country grew, people started calling them by their own name. 1958
It belongs to the Taiwanese people. Chang Kai-Shek and his nationalist followers fled (with emphasis on fled) to Taiwan from Mao Zedong's communist rule. Ever since then, Taiwan has been its own country and rules its own government. Only a Chinese bimbo would tell you otherwise.
cause china(people republic of china) and Taiwan was a contry, after war Taiwan (as republic of china)lost the war, so they separated.the communist got china,so they use the name, they cant be 2 china in the world, so they use Taiwan.but the real name is republic of china(ROC) Not totally correct a…nd very misleading. Taiwan was awarded to Japan in 1895 because of military superiority of China. Taiwan people did not have a military and China sent ships to the island in order for sugarcane and numerous minerals to be mined and grown for money to be sent back to the Empress. The Republic of China is not a land/country but it is a "government". It was the name of the government on the mainland of China up until they were defeated just after WWII. Taiwan first tried to assert themselves as an independent country in 1895 and again in 1945 (approximately) after the defeat of Japan. Because Chiang, Kai Shek was an ally during WWII and since he was being defeated on the mainland, it was thought that if he took the island, that China could be monitored by the US. The people were mistreated and killed until they were subdued enough to stop fighting back and to realize that they could not take back their country. The real name of the island is Formosa or Taiwan...not "The Republic of China". The island has only been controlled by Chinese forces for a little over 100 years prior to Japan being the so-called "owners". Taiwan NEVER fought China...therefore they could never have lost. People should read and learn and not follow what anybody says or writes. (MORE)

Taiwan is a mountainous island. Mountains account for 30% of its total area, hills and plateaus for 40%, and plains for the remaining 30%. In terms of altitude Taiwan's topography can be categorized as follows: A. Mountains Taiwan's mountainous area consists of mountains of over 1,000 meters, spre…ading from the east to the central part of the island. Most of the mountain ranges go from north to south. Starting from the east coast, they are: Taitung Coastal Mountain Range (Hai-an Shan-mo), Central Mountain Range (Chung-yang Shan-mo), Snow Mountain Range (Hsue-shan Shan-mo), Jade Mountain Range (Yu-shan Shan-mo), and Ali Mountain Range (Ali-shan Shan-mo). The Central Mountain Range starts at Suao in the north and ends at Heng-chun Peninsula in the south, with a total length of 340 kilometers. It forms the major watershed for Taiwan's rivers. Jade Mountain (Yu-shan), soaring to a height of 3,952 meters, is the highest peak in Taiwan. B. Hills and Plateaus On the outskirts of the mountainous area are hills and plateaus ranging from 100 to 1,000 meters in altitude. Most of the hills are located in the west, especially in Chu-nan and Chia-i. They are constantly cut through by rivers and torn apart by faults in the earth's crust. As a result, they form an extremely rugged and broken landscape. Plateaus on the other hand are relatively low and flat, no more than 600 meters in height. All of them are in the west, starting from the Lin-ko Plateau in the north to the Heng-chun Plateau in the south. The soil covering both hills and plateaus in Taiwan has a high quantity of red clay and gravel. C. Plains and Basins The lowlands are most often found near the sea and rivers. Land formations lower than 100 meters are plains: these include great plains, deltas and valleys. Those surrounded by hills with a flat base in the center are basins, though some basins rise above 100 meters. The major ones in Taiwan are Taipei basin, Taichung basin, and Puli basin. D. Coasts Taiwan's coastline is approximately 1,566 kilometers long. There are four types of coastal landscape based on crust movement, rock formation and the resulting slope and contour of the sea floor as it rises to meet dry land: a) Eastern fault coast: This starts at Santiao Chiao in the north and ends at the southern tip of Hengchun Peninsula. The coastal mountains are parallel to the coastline, and so most of the eastern coast is rocky with few bays or islets. b) Western uplifted coast: This begins at the mouth of the Tanshui River in the north and ends at Fangliao in Pingtung County. Close to a deposit plain, it is a straight sandy coast without deep bays. It is a very typical uplifted sand coast. c) Northern mixed coast: This goes from the mouth of the Tanshui River to Santiao Chiao. As a mixed coast, it has both rocky and sandy sections, produced by uplifting and depression. d) Southern coral-reef coast: This starts from Fengkang in the west and reaches to Hsuhai in the east. Fringe reefs appear along the coastline. It resembles the western uplifted coast, straight with few bays. The development of coral reefs is clear evidence of the uplifting process which produced this coastline. e) the outlying islets : the Penghu archipelago is the largest region: its islets are based on flat basalt. Others are formed either by volcanic andesite or by coral reefs. Examples of the former are Kueshan Toa, Lu Tao, Lan Yu, Tiaoyutai Lieyu, Pengchia Yu, Mienhua Yu, Huaping Yu, and Keelung Yu. Examples of the latter include Liuchiu Yu, Pratas, and Taiping Tao. Source: http://twgeog.geo.ntnu.edu.tw/english/gemophology/gemophology.htm (MORE)
The streets and sidewalks? Yes, very. But I wish there were more trash cans. I'm not sure what everyone does with their garbage. Maybe, as a culture, they tend to not walk while eating and drinking, but I often find myself tempted to throw a wrapper to the ground because I can't find a bin. The air…, on the other hand, is rather polluted from all of the factories. There seems to always be a haze over populated areas of Taiwan. A lot like Los Angeles. (MORE)

In the early morning of December 10, 1949, Communist troops laid siege to Chengdu, the last Kuomintang (Nationalist chinese) controlled city in mainland China, where Chiang Kai-shek and his son Chiang Ching-kuo directed the defense at the Chengdu Central Military Academy. The aircraft May-ling eva…cuated them to Taiwan on the same day.

You can take a plane flight there, this will vary in cost depending where you are. There is also boat transportation available from certain countries nearby.

This is not a researched answer, but the result of personal experience. Wherever you go in Taiwan, you see rice paddies. Most of them are privately owned but they produce rice not only for personal use, but also for commercial purposes. The second thing you see are fruit trees upon fruit trees. Thes…e are mostly for commercial purposes, though. There are also numerous kinds of vegetables (like yams, sweet potatoes, bamboo shoots, etc.) that are grown in different parts of Taiwan, depending on the weather conditions of each part. Another very popular product is the betel nut. These trees are planted wherever there is a little space, and in mountainous areas, the betel nut trees are often planted on the slopes of the mountains. In the smaller rural areas, most families have some kind of a vegetable garden where they produce something of everything. For some of the elderly, these little vegetable patches provide their main income. (MORE)
