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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Longshan Temple, Raohe Street Night Market and Maokong Gondola. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Taipei: Shifen Old Street (in Pingxi), Keelung Harbor (in Zhongzheng District) and Ruifang (Chiufen (Jiufen Old Street) & Golden Waterfall). There's lots more to do: get a taste of the local shopping with Taipei 101, ponder the world of politics at Presidential Office Building, meet the residents at Taipei Zoo, and steep yourself in history at Taipei Confucius Temple.
