Hakka people account for around 20% of Taiwan’s population. Though like most of Taiwan’s population today they are ethnic Chinese, they have a distinctive language and culture, a government ministry dedicated to their affairs, and their own TV and radio stations. Across Taiwan are also a variety of Hakka cultural parks where Hakka heritage is celebrated. The Taipei City Hakka Cultural Park in particular is a welcoming place where visitors to Taiwan can experience aspects of traditional Hakka life.
