Where to stay in Keelung

Most visitors head to Keelung on a day trip from Taipei, with the port city linked up by bus and rail to the capital and journeys taking about half an hour by road. If you're intent on staying the night, Keelung offers a decent number of accommodations located primarily around the main harbor area. There, you'll find high-rise hotels enjoying views of the city and the water. Humbler and less expensive guesthouses on the side streets leading away from the harbor provide a good option for those on a budget.
