The cultural kaleidoscope of Taiwan’s capital city
pulses wherever you go. Incense-veiled temples
dating back to dynastic times blend seamlessly
with the neon street life of a decidedly more
modern era. Taipei has dozens of world-class
restaurants, where gourmets can sample the
best regional Chinese cuisine; and for the
gourmand, there are plenty of night markets
serving up scrumptious evening snacks in an
environment of chaotic excitement and fun.
ASTD (American Society for Training &
Development) is the world’s largest association
dedicated to the training and development
profession. ASTD’s members come from more
than 100 countries, connect locally in more
than 120 U.S. chapters, and have more than
10 international strategic partners. Members
work in thousands of organizations that come
in all forms and sizes, including government,
independent consultants, and suppliers.
The Tze Chiang Foundation of Science and
Technology (TCFST) was founded in 1973. Since
its establishment, TCFST has been devoted
to fostering high-tech talent and actively
integrating the resources from the industrial,
government, academic, and research institutes
for the cooperation and development of
industrial technologies and cultivating high-tech
talent. Its scope of service has been expanded
as it evolves, and its core value is to provide
participants assistance in enhancing job skills
and acquiring new techniques and concepts.
The polarities of Taipei are vividly present as
well in the joining of the urban and natural. Just
a few minutes from the heart of the city you can
soak away the cares of the world in mineral-rich
hot springs nestled in the lush mountain foothills
ringing the Taipei Basin. And throughout the city
there are plenty of trails, parks, and other oases
of tranquility to lift and invigorate your spirits.
