North Gate, Taipei

(80+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
Check out North Gate, the remaining part of the once-planned city walls of Taipei. Originating from the Qing dynasty, the wall had five gates, but only the north one still stands to this day in its original form. The picturesque structure--made from stone, with red-painted external walls--stands out from its modern surroundings, creating a great photo opportunity. Make North Gate a centerpiece of your Taipei vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Taipei itinerary maker.
