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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Taipei: Wenwu Shengmiao (in Xinzhuang) and Ruifang (Chiufen (Jiufen Old Street) & Keelung Mountain). There's much more to do: make a trip to Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, stroll through Taipei Zoo, take a stroll through Ximending, and buy something for everyone on your list at Taipei 101.
