About Taipei

Including tips for the best time to visit Taipei

Taiwan’s capital city of Taipei showcases soaring towers, a sparkling nightlife and buzzing markets. A perfect blend of Chinese, Japanese and American influences, Taipei welcomes you with its exuberant energy and vibrant spirit.

Taipei has carved out its place as one of the world’s best countries for street food. From quick snacks to heavy meals, this city offers a plethora of food choices that will make you come back for more. While exploring the city streets, try Fan Tuan – a rice roll stuffed with pickled vegetables, fried pork and fried egg – along with a cup of brown sugar boba. The braised pork rice bowl is another must-have.

Taipei’s nightlife is abuzz with glowing streets, food stalls and people. To get the real taste of Taipei, visit Shilin Night Market for its oyster omelette, dumplings and fried chicken. Later, you can take a walk down Ximending, a pedestrian shopping district teeming with enthusiastic shoppers.

When you’re in Taipei, you’ll never run out of things to do. Make your way to Taipei 101 to witness panoramic views of the city atop a 1,300 foot tall building. You can also stop to take pictures of the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, built in memory of the former President of the Republic of China. A trip to Longshan and Tianhou Temples will give you an understanding of the cultural backbone and beliefs of the country. After a full day of exploring, you can sit back and relax at Beitou Hot Spring, Taiwan's only hot spring resort.

Small hotel with no window.

April 22, 2022

Small hotel with no window. Wouldn't recommend for families to saty. we had issues checking in. The room we book and the room they offered was not the same and had to wait a long time before another room was given to us. They have zero trouble shooting skills and I had to come up with an alternative myself. I had clearly stated room for 3 people and they booked us room was 2 which was too small.

I lived in Taipei for three years and now travel to and from it on a regular basis. It is cosmopolitan enough to suit the shopping and entertainment addicts and yet it is so easy to get out into nature for hikes and exploration and its location is so near the coast line that in one day you can go to play on the beach, hike on a mountain, and end the day at a KTV joint if you want a filled day of excitement.

Very pleasant to walk around the city, almost can hear the birds sing at anytime of the day... even Taipei's capital of Taiwan, it's way laid back than Tokyo and Hong Kong. I'd recommend 1. a stroll in dihua street and the songshan, sanmin district, to discover the small alleys and to enjoy the mixed ambience of ancien &the modern. 2. Yangmingshan national park and the hot spring around. 3. food culture and fine dining, and don't miss out Ding tai feng.

It is a safe, friendly city.

November 18, 2021

It is a safe, friendly city. Rustling and bustling. Full of cafe, bakeries, shopping areas, select shops, etc. Food is diverse and has a wide range of price. You can easily find something you like. Better have local friend who can show you around , and lead you to avoid unnecessary traveler spot. The most interesting places are usually hidden in the alley.
