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.
Head to Taipei 101 and Shilin Nightmarketfor plenty of shopping. Step off the beaten path and head to Neipi Beach and Waiao Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Lanyang Museum (in Toucheng), Spas & Wellness (in Yilan City) and Yilan Lover's Bay (in Wujie). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Ximending, don't miss a visit to Chiufen (Jiufen Old Street), take in the spiritual surroundings of Hsing Tian Kong, and get engrossed in the history at National Palace Museum.

For other places to visit, photos, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Taipei route builder website .
