Fodor's Review

History buffs will be fascinated by a trip to "the island Chairman Mao couldn't capture." Though barely a stone's throw from mainland China, this little chunk of land is still controlled by Taiwan, and Taiwanese guards patrol its shores. A visit is possible, but you'll need to do some planning. At this writing, there were still no official English guides, but that's sure to change.

the return ticket must be bought once on Kinmen.
