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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Taipei Confucius Temple and Ri Xing Type Foundry. Venture out of the city with trips to Chiufen (Jiufen Old Street) (in Ruifang) and Yeh Liu Geo Park (in Wanli). The adventure continues: get engrossed in the history at National Palace Museum, get a taste of the local shopping with Taipei 101, pause for some photo ops at Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, and don't miss a visit to Elephant Mountain (aka Nangang District Hiking Trail).
