Explore the History
Although only 300 years old, Taipei has a wealth of history exhibited in its architecture and temples. In the heart of the city, Liberty Square is a focal point for locals and tourists alike with the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall rising from the east side commemorating the iron-fisted ruler of the country after World War II. Although controversial, the memorial is a must-see along with the close by National Concert Hall, National Theatre, and surrounding Arch Gates.
With such a blend of cultures, it is no wonder that temples are a highlight of holidays in Taipei. The Longshan Temple is one of the oldest and is uniquely multi-denominational, being utilised by Buddhists and Taoists. Very active in the local community, it gives fantastic insights into the religious lives of the Taiwanese people.
Insider’s Tip: Visit Liberty Square in the late afternoon for the tranquil sight of many locals performing Tai Chi.
Get a View from Up High
Soaring proudly above the city’s skyline, Taipei 101 was officially the world’s tallest building when completed in 2004, a record it held until 2010. Offering a bird’s eye view of this magnificent city from the observatory on the 89th floor, the tower also provides an outdoor observatory on the 91st floor which is a must on clear, fine days.
Those looking to stay on terra firma can still get an amazing view of the city from the nearby Elephant Mountain. Located to the southeast of the city, a short hike through lush vegetation up to the top will provide panoramic views over the cityscape and its surrounding mountains.
Insider’s Tip: Although visibility will be key, a visit to the summit of Elephant Mountain just before sunset is breathtaking!
Take a Day Trip
Although you could spend all your time in Taipei without being bored, ignoring the surrounding areas of Taiwan would be a crime!
Just a couple of hours from the city centre to the northeast is a town nicknamed The Santorini of Taiwan. Juifen, built into the hillside overlooking the ocean, is a traditional town with winding streets and lantern filled lanes made for exploring. After tackling the streets enjoy a cup of tea in one of the many teahouses with remarkable views.
Further east on the rugged coastline of Longdong lie the Dragon Caves, a pristine stretch of rocky clifftops. Perfect for the outdoor enthusiast, the area is great for walking with stunning views down the cliff face. Keep an eye out for adventurous rock climbers while the warm waters at the base provide fantastic opportunities for snorkelling and diving.
Being in a tropical climate, Taiwan is dotted with majestic waterfalls, none more spectacular than Shifen Falls. The falls have been dubbed the Niagara Falls of Taiwan due to their horseshoe shape, and the walk to reach them through the verdant rainforest and across suspension bridges is equally as beautiful as the waterfall.
A little closer to Taipei, and the perfect place to unwind from the rigours of the city, the Beitou Hot Springs in the shadow of the volcanic Yangmingshan National Park offers visitors the chance to soak away their worries in the mineral-rich thermal springs. Although too hot to use the natural springs at their source, the nearby hotels and spas provide private hot springs for patrons to enjoy.
Expand your Palate
Like other Asian cities, Taipei has a unique and varied food scene that has become increasingly famous. Although there are excellent world-class restaurants within the city, some of the best traditional dishes can be found at the many night markets. The most famous of these is Shilin Night Market in the north of the city where delicacies are just the beginning.
If you are looking for something completely different, visit a themed restaurant for a unique experience. From Barbie and Lego to animals, retro cars, and even Alice in Wonderland, these niche dining options are found throughout the city with fun and lively atmospheres.

Alternatively, Middle Eastern carriers such as Emirates will only add approximately 2 hours onto the journey time.
