Taipei is indisputably one of the most prominent tourist attraction in Taiwan. However, have you really gone beyond the gridlocks of night markets and all those high rise buildings? With a prominent Japanese and Chinese influence along with a tinge of Western flavor, this metropolitan city is friendly and easily adapted to for all the travelers.
With prominent skyscrapers and impeccable food scene, the city needs no further introduction. Unfortunately, the natural and cultural attractions located near the Taipei City are relatively unexplored though increasingly sought after in the past couple of years.
The fact of the matter is that Taipei is a tough city to explore where the city’s beauty lies in its unique potpourri of Chinese culture with a curious fusion of American, Japanese and South East Asian influences. Taipei is a 300-year-old city which is more like a living museum. The Taoist temples here buzz with the prayers of the hopeful, the pilfered treasures housed in the National Palace Museum has been in existence for past 5000 years and the wooden boards of Japanese-era mansions squeak under the visitors’ feet. Together all this makes Taipei City one of most preferred holiday destinations of Taiwan.
