Taiwan is living proof that good things come in small packages. Though small in size, the country has a lot to offer, from natural wonders to culinary delights.
You won’t be able to tackle all of Taiwan in a day; most visitors admit they needed at least a week to see everything they wanted to.
The capital of Taipei is surprisingly unhurried but offers a lively atmosphere throughout the day and night. Visitors can spend their days strolling through the ultra trendy shopping district of the Ximending area, touring the many Taoist temples and admiring the huge collection of Asian art at the National Palace Museum. Taipei is also a great launch pad for day trips where visitor can explore the traditional teahouses, bubbling hot springs, the mountainous Yangmingshan National Park and the Taroko Gorge. In Taipei apparently size does matter. Taipei 101 is a towering skyscraper that was once the tallest building in the world. Visitors can enjoy a bird’s eye view of the city from the building’s observation deck located on the 89th floor. A visit to the massive Longshan Temple will have you feeling very small. Many visitors spend an afternoon admiring its grandeur and intricate details. As the sun sets over Taipei the local culture really shines after dark. Between the buzz worthy nightlife and the bustling night markets you will find an endless stream of distractions to keep you up past your bedtime. The Miaokou, Shilin and Raohe night markets are considered the best in Taipei and are a definitely a foodie’s paradise.
Beyond the bright lights of the city Taiwan offers beautiful hiking trails around the Yushan Peaks and Kenting National Park, playful beaches and historical towns such as Kaohsiung.
