North Gate, Taipei

2.3
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.

  • When I was walking back to the West Gate Hotel on foot from Taipei station, it was actually a small building, and it was still on the horse road. So you don't have to specialize. Of course the North has its own history story.

  • Like square flanked on the West side of Taipei main station and broad Street station was built. At one of the gates was once Taipei made five formal names so call and Seung-eun. 2 tier in structure under the stone, on the half painted red roof is shaped like a temple in Taiwan we see a lot of roof, stood out quite.

  • Really do not waste time to come here, no memory is the ancient war place, around the city's remaining city, inside is a piece has no very special style, rustling stone nothing good-looking.

Where to stay in Taipei

Taipei offers an impressive selection of accommodation options for every type of budget. For the least expensive rooms, consider areas near the main train station. You can usually find deep discounts online, so it pays to plan at least a month in advance. If you prefer to play it safe and don't mind paying a top price, go for one of the city's four- or five-star hotels, most of which offer quick access to popular tourist areas and some of the best shopping and dining spots.
