Things to See in Taipei
Taipei is a modern and dynamic city while still retaining the best elements of traditional Chinese and Taiwanese culture.
The city is located in the heart of Asia, with major regional cities including Tokyo, Seoul, Shanghai, and Hong Kong all within a three hour flight. Further afield, there are convenient direct flight connections to major cities in Europe and North America.
The city boasts excellent public transportation, including a modern and extensive metro system (MRT).
The National Palace Museum houses the largest collection of Chinese antiquities in the world.
The 509m Taipei 101 tower is formerly the tallest skyscraper in the world.
Taipei is a delight for lovers of food, nature, and traditional Chinese culture. Spend a day hiking in the splendid scenery of Yangmingshan right next to the city followed by a soak in hot-springs. Round the day off with a trip to one of Taipei’s many night markets for world famous snacks.
