Taipei

Taipei
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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Taipei: Chiufen (Jiufen Old Street) (in Ruifang) and Keelung Harbor (in Zhongzheng District). There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at National Palace Museum, browse the different shops at Taipei 101, browse the eclectic array of goods at Shilin Nightmarket, and meet the residents at Taipei Zoo.

Plan trip to Taipei with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.
