  • This resource will be updated regularly as new posts are released. Please check back often!

  • Locations marked as baby / toddler friendly are ONLY baby / toddler friendly up to certain points, not for the entire length of the route. Please see specific details about exactly how far is baby / toddler friendly in the Nitty-Gritty section of each individual post!

  • Most destinations have been researched and checked with real parents who have been there, or to similar places in Taiwan. 

  • All destinations on the Baby / Toddler List are also included in the Family Friendly list.

  • Please keep in mind that different families will have different ideas of what constitutes 'family friendly' or 'baby / toddler friendly.' These are TMR's best guides, and we hope they work for you!

  • These are outdoor destinations, so you may...

    • ...have no access to bathrooms.

    • ...need to carry kids in backpacks.

    • ...end up with kids getting dirty without a bath or shower nearby.

    • ...have an amazing time with your family in nature!

The Map Room's team has done our best to provide information about the following...

  • parking

  • family friendly camping

  • easy water access for play / cleaning up

  • interesting or more advanced options on site for teens or adults

  • hot springs and other options right on site

...but please bear in mind that we cannot always give every detail you might want in exactly the way you want it. Please use your best judgement, and consider the photos and videos in our posts, when deciding whether or not to take your children to any outdoor destination we may have listed.

So now, with all of that out of the way, get out there and show your family an amazing time in Taiwan's great outdoors!
