Taiwan vs. Vancouver Island

Taiwan vs. Vancouver Island
Taiwan vs. Vancouver Island, originally uploaded by jdgemm.

Thought it would be interesting to compare the two islands (I know I'm a wild and crazy guy...).

Summary

Taiwan is larger in terms of area (measured in square kilometers), but Vancouver Island has a larger coastline.

The population of Taiwan is 33 times that of Vancouver Island and has a population density approx. 29 times greater. A way to put the population density number into perspective: when I'm back on Vancouver Island and every time I see a person, think well actually in Taiwan it would be 29. So if there are 10 people in a lineup, don't complain because in Taiwan it would be 290.

Facts below.

Vancouver Island


Population: 700,000 (est. 2005)

Area: 31,284 square kilometers (sq km)

Population density: 22/sq km

Lenght of coastline: 3,440 km

Taiwan

Population: 22,894,384 (approx. 33 times that of Vancouver Island)

Area: 35,980 sq km

Population density; 636/sq km (approx. 29 times that of Vancouver Island)

Length of coastline: 1,566.3 km

really interesting stuff... i've been to Victoria, BC, but never to taiwan.

still although i've been to Victoria, i feel like i haven't seen all what Vancouver Island has to offer.

i'm eager to go back and see the other sides of Van Isl.
