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.
Appreciate the collections at National Palace Museum and Taiwan Coal Mine museum. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Yangmingshan National Park and Chiufen (Jiufen Old Street). Venture out of the city with trips to Pingxi (Shifen Scenic Area, Pingci Old Street, & more). There's much more to do: browse the different shops at Taipei 101, make a trip to Elephant Mountain (aka Nangang District Hiking Trail), wander the streets of Ximending, and take in the natural beauty of Beitou Hot Spring.

To find traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, read our Taipei trip planner .
