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.
Take a break from the city and head to Yangmingshan National Park and Keelung River Right Bank Bike Trail. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at National Palace Museum and Chiufen (Jiufen Old Street). Step out of Taipei with an excursion to Yeh Liu Geo Park in Wanli--about 44 minutes away. There's much more to do: take a stroll through Ximending, appreciate the history behind Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Hsing Tian Kong.
