Exploring Taipei

Taipei has grown immensely from its days as a trading port in the 1700s and today boasts tremendous wealth. Most of the growth has happened since the founding of the island capital in 1949 and it is now one of massive skyscrapers, endless shopping options, and many beautiful Qing Dynasty temples.

Taipei sits in the north of Taiwan in a bowl between two mountain ranges and is divided into several distinct districts. The western districts are old Taipei, typified by small streets and old merchant's shops, while the east is modern consisting of classy malls, restaurants, hotels and Taipei 101.

Sightseeing in Taipei

Taipei has a great range of attractions, from astonishingly beautiful old temples to grandiose skyscrapers and safari park-like zoos. In fact, you'd be hard pushed to find anything better in one city in mainland China. Plus everything is kept spotlessly clean and well maintained.

There are attractions worth seeing in all districts, including Taipei's mega structure Taipei 101 in Xinyi, Longshan Temple in Wanhua, and the vaunted National Palace Museum in Shilin. Most attractions can also be seen on foot and the expansive MRT train network is highly efficient and covers the majority of the main sights in the Taiwan capital.

Transportation in Taipei

Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport (TPE) is served by a variety of public buses and an express shuttle. The shuttle leaves every 15 minutes (05:30 to 01:30) and is the best option cost wise, while the public buses are cheapest and run to Taipei Train Station. Taxis operate on a queue system at both terminals and are efficient, yet pricy.

Taipei's public transportation system is reliable and efficient, with a mass rapid transit system covering much of the important parts of town and clean and efficient buses that have their own lanes.
