Taipei

— 8 nights

City of Azaleas

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.
Get some historical perspective at Chiufen (Jiufen Old Street) and Wulai. Head to Taipei 101 and Eslite Bookstore - Xinyifor some retail therapy. Venture out of the city with trips to Toucheng (Tou Cheng Bathing Beach, Lanyang Museum, &more), Jiufen Elementary School (in Ruifang) and East District (Eighteen Peaks & Big City). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at National Palace Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Songshan Ciyou Temple, steep yourself in history at Taipei Confucius Temple, and take a memorable tour with YOLO Taiwan.
