Taipei Travel Guide
Taipei, the capital of Taiwan, is a modern metropolis with Japanese colonial lanes, busy shopping streets and contemporary buildings. The skyline is crowned by the 509m-tall, bamboo-shaped Taipei 101 skyscraper, with upscale shops at the base and a rapid elevator to an observatory near the top. Taipei is also known for its lively street-food scene and many night markets, including expansive Shilin market.
Major attractions include the National Palace Museum, displaying a vast collection of Chinese Imperial art moved from Beijing’s Forbidden City in 1949, and the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall. The old neighborhoods of Wanhua and Datong are filled with historic sites, including Longshan Temple, founded in 1738 and honoring numerous Buddhist and Taoist gods. Near the city and accessible by metro is the longtime spa region of Beitou, offering soaks at geothermal springs and hikes at adjacent Yangmingshan National Park. Another popular day trip is the Maokong tea region, reached by the 4km-long Maokong gondola from Taipei Zoo.
Taipei is a fast-growing city, but despite the pressure on land, a park is never far away, especially in the suburban areas. The downtown area is culturally divided into East and West. The west side, with its narrow streets and road side vendors, is considered the bastion of old Taipei life, whereas East Taipei, with its bustling supermalls, chic boutiques, stylish restaurants and classy cafes, reminiscent of those found in Tokyo, Bangkok, Seoul, Paris, London or New York City represents its metamorphosis.
Taipei is the national capital of the Republic of China, otherwise known as Taiwan. Sitting in the northern part of the island in a basin between the Yangming Mountains and the Central Mountains, Taipei serves as the island’s financial, cultural, and governmental center. The city is a tantalizing mix of Chinese, Japanese and Western influences, vibrant in its own right yet unhurried by global standards. Besides the architectural and cultural landmarks like Taipei 101 and Longshan Temple, the xiaochi (small snacks) in bustling night markets are an experience not to be forgotten by your stomach. The capital is also a great jumping off point for day trips to hot springs, old mining towns and national parks around the Northern Taiwan area.
The Taipei of today is rated as one of the planet’s wealthiest and most innovative cities, and is characterized by its friendly people and safe streets. While it is not usually high on the list of tourist destinations, in reality it is a fascinating place to visit and live, and Taipei‘s local cuisine has deservedly earned its place among Asia’s finest. Furthermore, despite its size, Taipei does not have any rough areas that are considered unsafe, even at night – which in itself is attractive.
