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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Dihua Street, Wu Fen Pu (Wufenpu Garment Wholesale Area), Shifen Old Street, and other attractions you added. Start off your visit on the 10th (Fri): take in the natural beauty of Beitou Hot Spring, buy something for everyone on your list at Q Square, take a stroll through Ximending, stop by ATT 4 FUN, then browse the different shops at Taipei 101, and finally browse the eclectic array of goods at Shilin Night Market. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: get to know the fascinating history of Chiufen (Jiufen Old Street), don't miss a visit to Shifen Old Street, then stop by Wu Fen Pu (Wufenpu Garment Wholesale Area), then hunt for treasures at Raohe Street Night Market, and finally stop by Pacific Sogo Fuxing Branch 太平洋Sogo 復興館.
