Situated in a basin between two mountain ranges, Taipei appeals to tourists with its blend of Asian cultures, living side by side amidst Japanese-era mansions and Taoist temples.
Head to Taipei 101 and Shilin Nightmarketfor plenty of shopping. Visit Yangmingshan National Park and Lungshan Temple for their historical value. Explore Taipei's surroundings by going to Ruifang (Chiufen (Jiufen Old Street) & Elephant Trunk Rock), Keelung River (in Bali) and Yeh Liu Geo Park (in Wanli). There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of National Palace Museum, tour the pleasant surroundings at Xinyue Beach, identify plant and animal life at Dongshan River Forest Park, and wander the streets of Ximending.
