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.
Explore hidden gems such as Songshan Ciyou Temple and Yang Ming Shan Qing Tian Gang. Change things up with these side-trips from Taipei: Jimi Square - Yilan Station (in Yilan City), Elephant Trunk Rock (in Ruifang) and Neipi Beach (in Su'ao). There's still lots to do: stroll around Dahu Park, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Qixing Mountain, stroll through Tiger Mountain Trail, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Bishanyan Kaizhang Shengwang Temple.

To see ratings, maps, and tourist information, go to the Taipei trip planner.
