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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Taipei: Yeh Liu Geo Park (in Wanli) and Chiufen (Jiufen Old Street) (in Ruifang). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at National Palace Museum, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Yangmingshan National Park, pause for some photo ops at National Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall, and make a trip to Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall.

To find photos, more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Taipei trip planner .

Gothenburg, Sweden to Taipei is an approximately 20.5-hour flight. You'll lose 7 hours traveling from Gothenburg to Taipei due to the time zone difference. Plan for much warmer temperatures traveling from Gothenburg in September, with highs in Taipei at 38°C and lows at 30°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Fri) to allow enough time to take a train to Hualien.
