North Gate, Taipei

2.2
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. A visit to North Gate represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Taipei trip maker tool to plot your vacation.
