Ilha Formosa

Have a look at this over-ten-miniute long promotion video produced by the Tourist Bureau of Taiwan to gain a snapshot view of my motherland.

The theme song in this video is Ilha Formosa, i.e. 'beautiful island' in Portuguese, an unofficial name which Taiwan was dubbed in 1544 when a Portuguese ship spotted the island. Taiwan has been know as Formosa ever since.
