For my recent trip to Taiwan I bought several guide books. After using them on the road, I can say that this Rough Guide to Taiwan is by far the best one.
Firstly, in Taiwan you often need information on the locations in Chinese characters. If you cannot speak the language showing a taxi driver the Chinese name of a place can work wonders. This Rough Guide helped us more than once (it also contains a very good short list of the most important expressions used in Chinese).
Secondly, most guide books are too superficial giving only a few hints for the busy traveller. The Rough Guide to Taiwan informed us perfectly for 4 days in Tainan. We found all the places on the maps and the information was precise. It served us well in Taipei, in the National Museum and other places. When we got hungry, a look at the nearest number on the guide's city map led us to cheap and delicious noodle shops or local cafes. The Jioufen Tea House was rightly marked as a highlight. We spent a rainy morning there over several cups of tea. Keeling and Minnigh did a wonderful job to collect all this and more!
Thirdly, on the flight to Taiwan you can read through the history section of the book. You will arrive prepared for a short discussion on the political situation and the relationship with the Peoples Republic of China or Japan.
This Rough Guide to Taiwan is highly recommended ... and Taiwan itself is worth a visit!

Der Inhalt wäre ja schon gut, aber viele Seiten sind schlecht lesbar, da die Buchstaben doppelt übereinander mit ca 1/10mm Verschiebung gedruckt sind, z.B.: Seite 179
