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.
Chiufen (Jiufen Old Street) and Hsing Tian Kong are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Taipei Confucius Temple and Sunnyhills. Change things up with these side-trips from Taipei: National Center for Traditional Arts (in Wujie), Nanning Fish Market (in Su'ao) and Fulung Beach (in Gongliao). There's still lots to do: shop like a local with Taipei 101, appreciate the history behind Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, stop by Yongkang Street, and don't miss a visit to Elephant Mountain (aka Nangang District Hiking Trail).
