Taiwan, officially known as the Republic of China, is state in eastern Asia. It is a separate government power that claims sovereignty over the entirety of the People's Republic of China, while conversely, the PRC asserts sovereignty over Taiwan. International recognition of Taiwan as an independent state has slowly waned over time, with more nations choosing to recognize the PRC. It has a population of 23,315,822 and speaks Chinese as an official language.

Taiwan has seen semi-occasional visits by the race. Most often, the race simply refers to region as "Taiwan" and treats it as its own sovereign nation. It has also been visited by The Amazing Race: China Rush 3, although that season, as a Chinese production, does not recognize its sovereignty. Additionally, the same season also featured a single Taiwanese team. However, they were identified as Chinese and a PRC flag appeared next to their name. Two other Taiwanese contestants have competed on The Amazing Race: Jisu Qianjin.

In addition, it served as the finish line on HaMerotz LaMillion 3.


Political Subdivisions

Taiwan is divided into 14 Counties, five Special Municipalities and three Provincial Cities. The Amazing Race has visited one county, one provincial city and four special municipalities.
