Though Taiwan is a new tourist destination for the Russians, it has long gained a reputation as a favourite resort place for tourists from Japan and South Korea, as there a high level of service is combined with reasonable prices. Taipei is a contemporary megalopolis with skyscrapers and vibrant nightlife, but at the same time 20% of the island’s territory is taken by national parks and reserves inhabited by unique fauna and flora. The Taiwanese are very proud of the unique ecosystem of the island which they managed to harmoniously blend with the comforts of the civilization.
Since 2018, a visa-free regime is opened for the Russian nationals travelling to Taiwan. The Russian nationals may stay in Taiwan without visa for up to 14 days. To enter the island, one needs the passport valid for more than six months and a return ticket.
Tickets may be purchased in air ticket offices, on the website and via the airline’s mobile applications. You can also get detailed information about the flights and reserve and buy tickets by contacting the airline’s call centre at 8-800-700-07-07 (toll-free within Russia).
